Allelopathic effect boosts Chrysosporum ovalisporum dominance in summer at the expense of Microcystis panniformis in a shallow coastal water body

The increased occurrence of harmful cyanobacterial species and, with this, higher frequency of cyanobacteria blooms, closely associated with eutrophication and climate change, have attracted increasing attention worldwide. However, competition mechanisms between the different bloom-forming cyanobacteria species remain to be elucidated. In this paper, for the first time, the...

Nutrient availability limits biological production in Arctic sea ice melt ponds

Every spring and summer melt ponds form at the surface of polar sea ice and become habitats where biological production may take place. Previous studies report a large variability in the productivity, but the causes are unknown. We investigated if nutrients limit the productivity in these first-year ice melt ponds by adding nutrients to three enclosures ([1] PO4 3−, [2] NO3...

Dominance of Myriophyllum spicatum in submerged macrophyte communities associated with grass carp

Re-establishment of macrophyte communities is a key to restore eutrophic shallow lakes. The species composition of the plant communities may change rapidly during the recovery period. A basin in subtropical Lake Qinhu (China) was restored by biomanipulation including fish removal followed by planting of submerged macrophytes in 2011. In September-December 2011, dominance of...

Effects of Temperature, Salinity and Fish in Structuring the Macroinvertebrate Community in Shallow Lakes: Implications for Effects of Climate Change

Climate warming may lead to changes in the trophic structure and diversity of shallow lakes as a combined effect of increased temperature and salinity and likely increased strength of trophic interactions. We investigated the potential effects of temperature, salinity and fish on the plant-associated macroinvertebrate community by introducing artificial plants in eight comparable...

Exploring, exploiting and evolving diversity of aquatic ecosystem models: a community perspective

Here, we present a community perspective on how to explore, exploit and evolve the diversity in aquatic ecosystem models. These models play an important role in understanding the functioning of aquatic ecosystems, filling in observation gaps and developing effective strategies for water quality management. In this spirit, numerous models have been developed since the 1970s. We...

Influence of nutrients, submerged macrophytes and zooplankton grazing on phytoplankton biomass and diversity along a latitudinal gradient in Europe

In order to evaluate latitudinal differences in the relationship of phytoplankton biomass and diversity with environmental conditions in shallow lakes, we sampled 98 shallow lakes from three European regions: Denmark (DK), Belgium/The Netherlands (BNL) and southern Spain (SP). Phytoplankton biomass increased with total phosphorus (TP) concentrations and decreased with submerged...

The importance of macrophyte bed size for cladoceran composition and horizontal migration in a shallow lake

Cladoceran composition and diel horizontal migration were studied in 2, 10 and 25 m diameter macrophyte exclosures established in the littoral zone of shallow Lake Stigsholm, Denmark. The exclosures were protected from waterfowl grazing, but open to fish. The macrophyte community cornprized Potwnogeton pectinatus, Potamogeton pusillus and Callitriche hemaphroditica. Cladocerans...

Trophic structure in the pelagial of 25 shallow New Zealand lakes: changes along nutrient and fish gradients

To gain better insight into the importance of predator and resource control in New Zealand lakes we surveyed the late summer trophic structure of 25 shallow South Island lakes with contrasting nutrient levels (6–603 μg TP l–1) and fish densities. Total catch of fish per net (CPUE) in multi-mesh gillnets placed in the open water and the littoral zones was positively related with...

Challenges and opportunities for integrating lake ecosystem modelling approaches

A large number and wide variety of lake ecosystem models have been developed and published during the past four decades. We identify two challenges for making further progress in this field. One such challenge is to avoid developing more models largely following the concept of others (‘reinventing the wheel’). The other challenge is to avoid focusing on only one type of model...
