Lakes are considered as “islands” for assessing microbial biogeography, but bacterial community composition (BCC) and function may vary significantly within lakes, with the roles of scale and connectivity still unclear. This study investigated the spatial and temporal heterogeneity of the BCC (automated ribosomal intergenic spacer analysis) and functional(More)
We investigated the main structuring forces driving epiphytic algae dynamics with wind disturbances and zooplankton grazing acting as potential stressors by inducing a natural 60-day epiphyton summer succession. We cleaned macrophytes in the subtropical shallow Mangueira Lake, southern Brazil, using soft sponges and sampled them randomly at short-term(More)
Changes of the plankton community in a shallow, subtropical lagoonal system and its relation to environmental conditions were investigated during an annual cycle to provide information on its spatial and seasonal variation pattern. The study carried out at four sites (three in the Peixe lagoon and one in the Ruivo lagoon), which are located in the Lagoa do(More)
Ceratium species are not a common component of freshwater phytoplankton in South America. However, these dinoflagellates have often been observed in many water bodies over the past two and a half decades. We investigated Ceratium furcoides’ abundance and morphological variation during its initial phase of colonization (2012–2013) in two subtropical(More)
