Lake responses to reduced nutrient loading - an analysis of contemporary long-term data from 35 case studies
SUMMARY 1. This synthesis examines 35 long-term (5–35 years, mean: 16 years) lake re-oligotrophication studies. It covers lakes ranging from shallow (mean depth <5 m and/or polymictic) to deep (meanExpand

Salinity and temperature influence in rotifer life history characteristics
A review of temperature and salinity effects on rotifer population dynamics is presented together with original data of these effects for three clones of Brachionus plicatilis. There is a clearExpand

The determination of ecological status in shallow lakes - a tested system (ECOFRAME) for implementation of the European Water Framework Directive
1. The European Water Framework Directive requires the determination of ecological status in European fresh and saline waters. This is to be through the establishment of a typology of surface waterExpand

Mesocosm experiments on nutrient and fish effects on shallow lake food webs in a Mediterranean climate
Summary 1. Nutrient and fish manipulations in mesocosms were carried out on food-web interactions in a Mediterranean shallow lake in south-east Spain. Nutrients controlled biomass of phytoplanktonExpand

Relationships between mixis in Brachionus plicatilis and preconditioning of culture medium by crowding
Several experiments with Brachionus plicatilis have been conducted to test the existence of chemical-mediated induction of mixis. In a first experimental set, bioassays were used to testExpand

Which factors determine the abundance and distribution of picocyanobacteria in inland waters? A comparison among different types of lakes and ponds
In a limnological survey including 45 lakes and ponds from central-eastern Spain, we studied the main factors associated with the abundance of autotrophic pico-plankton (APP), mostly formed byExpand

The meromictic Lake La Cruz (Central Spain). Patterns of stratification
Abstract: The main limnological characteristics of the biogenic meromictic Lake La Cruz, a small karstic lake located on a dolomitic substrate, are outlined below. The lake owes its chemicalExpand

The role of climate in shaping zooplankton communities of shallow lakes
We analyzed data from 81 shallow European lakes, which were sampled with standardized methods, for combined effects of climatic, physical, and chemical features of food-web interactions, with aExpand

Response of a shallow Mediterranean lake to nutrient diversion: does it follow similar patterns as in northern shallow lakes?
Summary 1. In view of the paucity of data on the response of warm shallow lakes to reductions in nutrient loading, this paper presents a long-term limnological data set to document changes in theExpand

Phototrophic Fe(II)-oxidation in the chemocline of a ferruginous meromictic lake
Precambrian Banded Iron Formation (BIF) deposition was conventionally attributed to the precipitation of iron-oxides resulting from the abiotic reaction of ferrous iron (Fe(II)) withExpand
