Periphyton responses to eutrophication in the Florida Everglades: Cross‐system patterns of structural and compositional change
We examined periphyton along transects in five Everglades marshes and related compositional and functional aspects to phosphorus (P) gradients caused by enriched inflows. Results were compared to
Ecosystem respiration: Drivers of daily variability and background respiration in lakes around the globe
We assembled data from a global network of automated lake observatories to test hypotheses regarding the drivers of ecosystem metabolism. We estimated daily rates of respiration and gross primary
Spatial and temporal patterns of aboveground net primary productivity (ANPP) along two freshwater-estuarine transects in the Florida Coastal Everglades
We present here a 4-year dataset (2001–2004) on the spatial and temporal patterns of aboveground net primary production (ANPP) by dominant primary producers (sawgrass, periphyton, mangroves, and
Effects of weather-related episodic events in lakes: an analysis based on high frequency data.
1. Weather-related episodic events are typically unpredictable, and their duration is often short. Abiotic and biological responses are often missed in routine monitoring. These responses are,
Landscape Patterns of Periphyton in the Florida Everglades
Periphyton is an abundant and ubiquitous feature of the Florida Everglades, often forming thick mats that blanket shallow sediments and submersed plants. They are considered to be primary ecosystem
Everglades Periphyton: A Biogeochemical Perspective
The authors synthesize Everglades periphyton biogeochemistry and diversity at the ecosystem and community scales to predict and interpret responses to ecosystem restoration.
Cascading ecological effects of low-level phosphorus enrichment in the Florida everglades.
It is indicated that Everglades marshes have a near-zero assimilative capacity for P without a state change, that ecosystem responses to enrichment accumulate over time, and that downstream P transport mainly occurs through biota rather than the water column.
Tracking rates of ecotone migration due to salt-water encroachment using fossil mollusks in coastal South Florida
We determined the rate of migration of coastal vegetation zones in response to salt-water encroachment through paleoecological analysis of mollusks in 36 sediment cores taken along transects
