Classifying aquatic macrophytes as indicators of eutrophication in European lakes
Aquatic macrophytes are one of the biological quality elements in the Water Framework Directive (WFD) for which status assessments must be defined. We tested two methods to classify macrophyteExpand

Using aquatic macrophyte community indices to define the ecological status of European lakes
Defining the overall ecological status of lakes according to the Water Framework Directive (WFD) is to be partially based on the species composition of the aquatic macrophyte community. We testedExpand

Assembly mechanisms determining high species turnover in aquatic communities over regional and continental scales
Niche and neutral processes drive community assembly and metacommunity dynamics, but their relative importance might vary with the spatial scale. The contribution of niche processes is generallyExpand

Ecological status assessment of European lakes: a comparison of metrics for phytoplankton, macrophytes, benthic invertebrates and fish
Data on phytoplankton, macrophytes, benthic invertebrates and fish from more than 2000 lakes in 22 European countries were used to develop and test metrics for assessing the ecological status ofExpand

Ecosystem effects of thermal manipulation of a whole lake, Lake Breisjøen, southern Norway (THERMOS project)
We conducted a 3-year artificial deepening of the thermocline in the dimictic Lake Breisjoen, southern Nor- way, by means of a large submerged propeller. An adja- cent lake served as untreatedExpand

Seasonal and scale-dependent variability in nutrient- and allelopathy-mediated macrophyte–phytoplankton interactions
macrophyte–phytoplankton interactions were investigated using a dual laboratory and field approach during a growing season, with responses quantified as changes in biomass. Short-term, close-rangeExpand

Detection of an invasive aquatic plant in natural water bodies using environmental DNA
The ability to detect founding populations of invasive species or rare species with low number of individuals is important for aquatic ecosystem management. Traditional approaches use historicalExpand
