Dispersal as a limiting factor in the colonization of restored mountain streams by plants and macroinvertebrates
Summary 1. Over the past centuries, European streams have been heavily influenced by humans through pollution and regulation. As a result, the quality and diversity of freshwater riparianExpand

How a bottom-dweller beats the canopy: inhibition of an aquatic weed (Potamogeton pectinatus) by macroalgae (Chara spp.)
1. Bottom-dwelling charophytes have been observed to replace canopy-forming pondweeds within a few years in de-eutrophied shallow lakes. Competition for bicarbonate (HCO3−) may explain this shift inExpand

Towards restoring urban waters: understanding the main pressures
Water bodies in the urban landscape are omnipresent, with many being small, lentic waters such as ponds and lakes. Because of high anthropogenic forcing, these systems have poor water quality, withExpand

Serving many at once: How a database approach can create unity in dynamical ecosystem modelling
Simulation modelling in ecology is a field that is becoming increasingly compartmentalized. Here we propose a Database Approach To Modelling (DATM) to create unity in dynamical ecosystem modellingExpand

Advantages of concurrent use of multiple software frameworks in water quality modelling using a database approach
Water quality modelling deals with multidisciplinary questions ranging from fundamental to applied. Addressing this broad range of questions requires multiple analysis techniques and thereforeExpand

Mowing Submerged Macrophytes in Shallow Lakes with Alternative Stable States: Battling the Good Guys?
Submerged macrophytes play an important role in maintaining good water quality in shallow lakes. Yet extensive stands easily interfere with various services provided by these lakes, and harvesting isExpand

Success of lake restoration depends on spatial aspects of nutrient loading and hydrology.
Many aquatic ecosystems have deteriorated due to human activities and their restoration is often troublesome. It is proposed here that the restoration success of deteriorated lakes critically dependsExpand

Modeling water quality in the Anthropocene: directions for the next-generation aquatic ecosystem models
“Everything changes and nothing stands still” (Heraclitus). Here we review three major improvements to freshwater aquatic ecosystem models — and ecological models in general — as water qualityExpand

Evaluation of a coupled hydrodynamic-closed ecological cycle approach for modelling dissolved oxygen in surface waters
The description of intertwined ecological processes in surface waters requires a holistic approach that accounts for spatially distributed hydrological/water quality processes. This study describes aExpand
