Resilience of North Sea phytoplankton spring bloom dynamics: An analysis of long‐term data at Helgoland Roads
Analyzing one of the most extensive long-term data series in the North Sea, the Helgoland Roads time series, we investigated the changes in the factors that potentially drive phytoplankton bloomExpand

Too much of a good thing: on stoichiometrically balanced diets and maximal growth.
Nutritional imbalances are of great interest in the ecological stoichiometry literature, in which researchers have focused almost exclusively on cases where nutrients are available in low amountsExpand

Differential effects of phosphorus and fatty acids on Daphnia magna growth and reproduction
We investigated the effects of various mineral and biochemical limitations on Daphnia magna. These daphniids have much lower saturation thresholds for growth for the polyunsaturated fatty acidsExpand

Helgoland Roads, North Sea: 45 Years of Change
The Helgoland Roads time series is one of the richest temporal marine data sets available. Running since 1962, it documents changes for phytoplankton, salinity, Secchi disc depths and macronutrients.Expand

Goldman revisited: Faster-growing phytoplankton has lower N: P and lower stoichiometric flexibility
In their seminal paper, Goldman et al. suggested that phytoplankton close to maximum growth rate attains a restricted optimal N : P ratio close to the Redfield ratio of molar N : P = 16. Recently,Expand

The nutritional quality of P‐limited algae for Daphnia
This paper details results of experiments intended to clarify the relative effects of mineral versus biochemical limitations of algae on the food quality for herbivorous zooplankton. PhosphorusExpand

The first occurrence of the ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi in the North Sea
After the discovery of large densities of Mnemiopsis leidyi in the Baltic Sea near Kiel by Javidpour et al. (First record of Mnemiopsis leidyi A. Agassiz 1865 in the Baltic Sea, 2006) in OctoberExpand

Cascading predation effects of Daphnia and copepods on microbial food web components
1. We performed a mesocosm experiment to investigate the structuring and cascading effects of two predominant crustacean mesozooplankton groups on microbial food web components. The natural summerExpand
