Acute Biochemical Responses of a Submersed Macrophyte, Potamogeton crispus L., to High Ammonium in an Aquarium Experiment
ABSTRACT Acute biochemical responses of Potamogeton crispus L. to high external ammonium were investigated in an aquarium experiment. Shoots of P: crispus were incubated in aquaria for 24 h or 48 hExpand

The role of NH+4 toxicity in the decline of the submersed macrophyte Vallisneria natans in lakes of the Yangtze River basin, China
Experimental and field studies were conducted to evaluate the effects of NH4+ enrichment on growth and distribution of the submersed macrophyte, Vallisneria natans L, in lakes of the Yangtze River inExpand

Effects of moderate ammonium enrichment on three submersed macrophytes under contrasting light availability
1. Increased ammonium concentrations and decreased light availability in a water column have been reported to adversely affect submersed vegetation in eutrophic waters worldwide. 2. We studied theExpand

Carbon and nitrogen metabolism of an eutrophication tolerative macrophyte, Potamogeton crispus, under NH4+ stress and low light availability
Submersed macrophytes in eutrophic lakes often experience high NH4+ concentration and low light availability in the water column. This study found that an NH4+-N concentration of 1 mgL(-1) in theExpand

Ammonium, microcystins, and hypoxia of blooms in eutrophic water cause oxidative stress and C-N imbalance in submersed and floating-leaved aquatic plants in Lake Taihu, China.
The heavy bloom of cyanobacteria is a disastrous consequence of freshwater eutrophication, and the bloom is highly toxic due to its secondary metabolites called microcystins (MCs). The release ofExpand

Physiological Stress of High NH4+ Concentration in Water Column on the Submersed Macrophyte Vallisneria Natans L.
The submersed macrophyte, Vallisneria natans L., was cultured in laboratory with NH4+-enriched tap water (1 mg L−1 NH4-N) for 2 months and the stressful effects of high ammonium (NH4+) concentrationsExpand

Functional traits composition predict macrophytes community productivity along a water depth gradient in a freshwater lake
Functional trait composition of plant communities has been proposed as a helpful key for understanding the mechanisms of biodiversity effects on ecosystem functioning. In this study, we applied aExpand

Differential photosynthetic and morphological adaptations to low light affect depth distribution of two submersed macrophytes in lakes
To evaluate the relative importance of photosynthetic versus morphological adaptations of submersed macrophytes to low light intensity in lakes, rapid light curves (RLCs), morphological parameters,Expand

Seasonal variations in stable isotope ratios of two biomanipulation fishes and seston in a large pen culture in hypereutrophic Meiliang Bay, Lake Taihu
This paper reports on seasonal changes in stable carbon and nitrogen isotope ratios of seston and muscle tissue of silver carp and bighead carp during 2004 and 2005, focusing primarily on the carbonExpand
