A Volvox colony from a freshwater lake in British Columbia, Canada. Volvox is a genus of green algae that forms colonies of numerous cells. A recent survey of lakes in British Columbia found that richness and composition of zooplankton, phytoplankton, and bacterial communities are regulated independently among lakes and respond to different environmental variables.
