    A whole-lake food web manipulation suggested that planktivorous fish can play an important role in regulating the pelagic food web structure of mesotrophic lakes. In this study, we examined the impact of golden shiners (Notemigonus crysoleucas) on zooplankton, diliates, phytoplankton and...

    The timing of various plankton successional events in Lake Constance was tightly coupled to a large-scale meteorological phenomenon, the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO). A causal chain of meteorological, hydrological, and ecological processes connected the NAO as well as winter and early spring...

    Food webs include complex ecological interactions that define the flow of matter and energy, and are fundamental in understanding the functioning of an ecosystem. Temporal variations in the densities of communities belonging to the planktonic food web (i.e., microbial: bacteria, flagellate, and...

    Mysis introductions to the lakes of western North America have shown they are important predators on zooplankton, especially daphnids, and intercept energy flows that would otherwise be available to pelagic fishes. However, understanding of the ecological roles of Mysis within invaded...

    Climatic and anthropogenic forcing on the long-term changes in the community of rotifers were investigated during the period 1969–98 in Lake Geneva. The results showed a cascade of links between large-scale climate indices and phosphorus concentrations, acting as main factors, and the...

    In poorly buffered areas acidification may occur for two reasons: through atmospheric deposition of acidifying substances and – in mining districts – through pyrite weathering. These different sources of acidity lead to distinct clearly geochemistry in lakes and rivers. In general,...

    Planktonic microbial community structure and classical food web were investigated in the large shallow eutrophic Lake Taihu (2338 km2, mean depth 1.9 m) located in subtropical Southeast China. The water column of the lake was sampled biweekly at two sites located 22 km apart over a period of...
