This research examined the spatial and temporal dynamics of zooplankton community size structure in aquatic environments that are increasingly impacted by natural and anthropogenic changes in two different regions, temperate and tropical. Under specific environmental stressors, increasing nutrient concentrations, hydrological regime and high fish predation, regulate zooplankton mean body size, abundance and biomass structure in the studied lakes. The results of this study can be of significant addition to the current growing body of knowledge and understanding of assessing zooplankton community changes by size and biomass distribution in urban and urbanized aquatic environment.
