The phytoplankton functional group concept is successfully used to assess ecological status in lakes (Q index), and also provides a method for lotic ecosystems (Q (r) index). Here, we examine the Q (r) composition metric to demonstrate local to regional scale human effects on natural distribution of phytoplankton along the River Loire. Distribution of(More)
We explored phytoplankton communities from a functional perspective in two connected but hydro-morphologically distinct basins during the ice-free period in the cold and oligotrophic Lake Tovel, Italy. Despite the absence of dispersal barriers, we expected a clear separation of the phytoplankton communities between basins based on their physical(More)
