Abstract This study shows that cyanobacteria blooms support secondary production in a diverse group of benthic and pelagic consumers and illustrate the utility of stable isotopes for tracking the… Expand
Increasing population of the invader round goby, Neogobius melanostomus (Actinopterygii: Perciformes: Gobiidae), and its trophic role in the Curonian Lagoon, SE Baltic Sea.
Invasive species are one of the major threats for biodiversity loss through competitive and predatory impacts on resident species, as well as it is for ecosystem functioning through alterations in… Expand
Towards ecosystem-based management: identifying operational food-web indicators for marine ecosystems
Modern approaches to Ecosystem-Based Management and sustainable use of marine resources must account for the myriad of pressures (interspecies, human and environmental) affecting marine ecosystems.… Expand
Isotopic evidence for zooplankton as an important food source for the mysid Paramysis lacustris in the Curonian Lagoon, the South-Eastern Baltic Sea
Isotopic evidence for zooplankton as an important food source for a coastal mysid Paramysis lacustris in the Curonian Lagoon, south-eastern Baltic Sea
Role of mysid seasonal migrations in the organic matter transfer in the Curonian Lagoon, south-eastern Baltic Sea
Abstract We investigated population dynamics, growth and feeding of an omnivorous mysid, Paramysis lacustris , performing seasonal horizontal migrations in the Curonian Lagoon. In autumn, increased… Expand
Microcystin in aquatic food webs of the Baltic and Chesapeake Bay regions
Abstract We undertook a comparative study of the James River Estuary, a sub-estuary of Chesapeake Bay, and the Curonian Lagoon, a sub-estuary of the Baltic Sea, to better understand the factors that… Expand
Feeding activity and diet composition of round goby (Neogobius melanostomus, Pallas 1814) in the coastal waters of SE Baltic Sea
Abstract Feeding activity and diet composition of round goby were investigated in the south-eastern Baltic Sea, the Lithuanian coastal waters during May-October 2012 in order to determine main… Expand
Feeding strategies and elemental composition in Ponto-Caspian peracaridans from contrasting environments: can stoichiometric plasticity promote invasion success?
SUMMARY 1. Ponto-Caspian peracaridans, and mysids and amphipods in particular, are among the most successful aquatic invaders. However, species differ in the trophic-status range of ecosystems they… Expand
Trophic position and basal energy sources of the invasive prawn Palaemon elegans in the exposed littoral of the SE Baltic Sea.
We investigated the abundance, trophic position, and linkages to basal energy sources of the non-indigenous prawn Palaemon elegans in shallow (0.5–1.6 m) stony habitats of the exposed coast of the SE… Expand
Food sources of wintering piscivorous waterbirds in coastal waters: A triple stable isotope approach for the southeastern Baltic Sea
This study uses a triple isotope approach (δ13C, δ15N, and δ34S) to quantify the main food sources for wintering piscivorous waterbirds in the coastal zone of the southeastern Baltic Sea. Significant… Expand
