The likelihood of an ecological system to undergo undesired regime shifts is expected to increase as climate change effects unfold. To understand how regional climate settings can affect resilience; i.e., the ability of an ecosystem to tolerate disturbances without changing its original structure and processes, we used a synchronized mesocosm experiment(More)
Submerged hydrophyte vegetation consists of a highly important biotic component of maintaining lake ecosystems towards a “clear water” ecological status. Aquatic macrophytes are well known to play a significant multidimensional role in lakes by competing with phytoplankton growth, stabilising sediment and offering refuge to fishes, macro-invertebrates and(More)
