Zooplankton community in Yangtze River Estuary and adjacent sea areas after the impoundment of the Three Gorges Reservoir
Zooplankton community structure in YRE was studied after the Three Gorges Reservoir.
Biomass and population density of zooplankton in YRE showed an increasing trend.
The key factor affecting zooplankton community in YRE was bottom layer salinity.
Long-term effects of TGR on zooplankton community in YRE need further investigation
