Phosphorus (P) limitation has been regarded as the rule in freshwater systems and the basis for phytoplankton growth management. We hypothesised that P would be the limiting nutrient for phytoplankton growth in Grahamstown Dam, a shallow, mesotrophic reservoir, across different seasons and on different experimental time scales. Seven fully factorial(More)
Managed flow releases are increasingly being utilised in the rehabilitation of regulated rivers to improve physical habitat condition and restore spatial connectivity. However, the potential for managed flow releases to influence basal resource availability to the downstream food web has received less attention. This study investigated dissolved organic(More)
In experiments investigating nutrient effects on tropical Microcystis, increasing nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations were found to have a significant positive effect on maximum cell yields of two strains of Microcystis ichthyoblabe (from Lower Peirce and Tengeh Reservoirs) and one strain of Microcystis flos-aquae isolated (Lower Peirce Reservoir) from(More)
