Perhaps the fact that many of these first studies considered only algae of a size that could be collected in a net (net phytoplankton), a practice that overlooked the smaller phytoplankton (nannoplankton) that we now know grazers are most likely to feed on, led to a de-emphasis of the role of grazers in subsequent research.
或许基于这一事实,即许多这些早期的研究仅仅考虑了一种其尺寸可用网兜收集起来的水藻(网浮游植物,net phytoplankton),而正是这一做法,忽略了我们现在所已知的食草动物最有可能赖以为生的较小浮游植物(纤浮游植物,nannoplankton),故而导致科学家在随后的研究中贬低食草动物的作用。

Studies by Hargrave and Geen estimated natural community graz- ing rates by measuring feeding rates of individual zooplankton species in the laboratory and then computing community grazing rates for field conditions using the known population density of grazers.

Using a specially prepared feeding chamber, Haney was able to record zooplankton grazing rates in natural field conditions.

It is conceivable, however, that these large, sedentary organisms do in fact feed on bacteria that grow in warm-water vents, rise in the vent water, and then rain in peripheral areas to nourish animals living some distance from the warm-water vents.

A very specialized feeding adaptation in zooplankton is that of the tadpolelike appendicularian who lives in a walnut-sized (or smaller) balloon of mucus equipped with filters that capture and concentrate phytoplankton.

Water containing phytoplankton is pumped by the appendicularian's muscular tail into the balloon's incurrent filters, passes through the feeding filter where the appendicularian sucks the food into its mouth, and then goes through an exit passage.
