Initial colonization of periphyton on natural and artificial apices of Myriophyllum heterophyllum Michx
TLDR
M. heterophyllum appeared to serve as a neutral substrate in terms of community composition but had a positive effect on the total numbers of algae, particularly small single-celled species, throughout the spring and summer. Expand
Relationship of macrophyte‐mediated changes in the water column to periphyton composition and abundance
TLDR
The metabolic and photosynthetic activity and dense foliage of M. heterophyllum created marked vertical gradients in physicochemical conditions that influenced temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH and light levels in the littoral waters of Lake Winnipesaukee, a soft-water New England lake. Expand
