Alternative equilibria in shallow lakes.
The turbidity of lakes is generally considered to be a smooth function of their nutrient status. However, recent results suggest that over a range of nutrient concentrations, shallow lakes can haveExpand

Role of sediment and internal loading of phosphorus in shallow lakes
The sediment plays an important role in the overall nutrient dynamics of shallow lakes. In lakes where the external loading has been reduced, internal phosphorus loading may prevent improvements inExpand

Trophic structure, species richness and biodiversity in Danish lakes: changes along a phosphorus gradient
1. Using data from 71, mainly shallow (an average mean depth of 3 m), Danish lakes with contrasting total phosphorus concentrations (summer mean 0.02–1.0 mg P L−l), we describe how species richness,Expand

Lake responses to reduced nutrient loading - an analysis of contemporary long-term data from 35 case studies
SUMMARY 1. This synthesis examines 35 long-term (5–35 years, mean: 16 years) lake re-oligotrophication studies. It covers lakes ranging from shallow (mean depth <5 m and/or polymictic) to deep (meanExpand

Top-down control in freshwater lakes: the role of nutrient state, submerged macrophytes and water depth
Based on data from 233 Danish lakes, enclosure experiments, full-scaleexperiments and published empirical models we present evidence that top-downcontrol is more important in shallow lakes than inExpand

From Greenland to green lakes: Cultural eutrophication and the loss of benthic pathways in lakes
Benthic community responses to lake eutrophication are poorly understood relative to pelagic responses. We compared phytoplankton and periphyton productivity along a eutrophication gradient inExpand

Iron:phosphorus ratio in surface sediment as an indicator of phosphate release from aerobic sediments in shallow lakes
Analysis of Danish lakes showed that both mean winter and mean summer concentrations of lake water total phosphorus in the trophogenic zone correlated negatively with the total iron to totalExpand

Lake restoration: successes, failures and long‐term effects
1. Eutrophication constitutes a serious threat to many European lakes and many approaches have been used during the past 20–30 years to improve lake water quality. Results from the various lakeExpand

Ecological Dynamics Across the Arctic Associated with Recent Climate Change
Assessing the Arctic The Arctic is experiencing some of the most rapid climate change currently under way across the globe, but consequent ecological responses have not been widely reported. At theExpand

Fish manipulation as a lake restoration tool in shallow, eutrophic, temperate lakes 2: threshold levels, long-term stability and conclusions
In order to evaluate short-term and long-term effects of fish manipulation in shallow, eutrophic lakes, empirical studies on relationships between lake water concentration of total phosphorus (P) andExpand
