Stoichiometric homeostasis of element composition is one of the central concepts of ecological stoichiometry. We analyzed concentrations of macroelements (C, N, P, Ca, K, Mg, S), microelements (Cu, Fe, Mn, Mo, Ni, Zn) and beneficial elements (Na, Se, Si) in submerged macrophytes, water and sediments across 20 Yunnan plateau lakes. We predicted that tissue(More)
Trace element balance is a key parameter in ecological stoichiometry. However, little is known about trace element stoichiometry of submerged macrophytes. We hypothesized that lake nutrients (N and P) and taxonomy strongly affect tissue trace element (Al, As, Ba, Cd, Co, Cr, Li, Pb and Sr) composition and homeostasis of submerged macrophytes in Yangtze(More)
