Road Ecology: Science and Solutions
Road ecology is defined as using the science of ecology and landscape ecology to examine, understand, and address the interactions of roads and vehicles with their surrounding environment. This book…
A highly unsaturated fatty acid predicts carbon transfer between primary producers and consumers
It is shown here that low transfer efficiencies between primary producers and consumers during cyanobacteria bloom conditions are related to low relative eicosapentaenoic acid (20:5ω3) content of the primary producer community, indicating that limitation of zooplankton production by this essential fatty acid is of central importance at the pelagic producer–consumer interface.
Phosphorus and nitrogen limitation of phytoplankton growth in the freshwaters of North America : a review and critique of experimental enrichments
It was found that combined N + P enrichment enhanced algal growth much more frequently and more substantially than did addition of N or P singly, and on average, the frequency and degree of algal response did not differ for P vs. N enrichment.

Stable isotope-based food web reconstructions reveal long-term food web changes in Lake Tahoe and can serve as the basis for setting historically relevant restoration targets, as well as examine the contemporary food web of nearby Cascade Lake, which is free from most exotic species and contains a species assemblage resembling that ofLake Tahoe prior to historical species introductions.

The Warming of Lake Tahoe
SummaryWe investigated the effects of climate variability on the thermal structure of Lake Tahoe, California-Nevada, 1970–2002, and with principal components analysis and step-wise multiple…
Atmospheric deposition of nitrogen and phosphorus in the annual nutrient load of Lake Tahoe (California‐Nevada)
Atmospheric deposition provides most of the dissolved inorganic nitrogen (DIN) and total nitrogen in the annual nutrient load of Lake Tahoe. Deposition also contributes significant amounts of soluble…
Efficiencies of benthic and pelagic trophic pathways in a subalpine lake
The larger size of benthic prey relative to pelagic prey may affect fish prey selection and foraging efficiency, resulting in differences in ecological efficiency between pelagic and benthi trophic pathways.
Distribution, density and production of the crayfish Pacifastacus leniusculus Dana in Lake Tahoe, California - Nevada
Wave action and light appears to limit crayfish density above 10 m depth and water temperature below 40 m, and the temperature distribution factor is supported by an experiment where females held at an average of 6.8 C failed to hatch eggs.

For more than half a century, the trophic status of water bodies has been of interest to Iimnologists and oceanographers alike. This report demonstrates the close, inverse relationship between…
