Diversity predicts stability and resource use efficiency in natural phytoplankton communities
The relationship between species diversity and ecosystem functioning has been debated for decades, especially in relation to the “macroscopic” realm (higher plants and metazoans). Although there isExpand

Internal Ecosystem Feedbacks Enhance Nitrogen-fixing Cyanobacteria Blooms and Complicate Management in the Baltic Sea
Abstract Eutrophication of the Baltic Sea has potentially increased the frequency and magnitude of cyanobacteria blooms. Eutrophication leads to increased sedimentation of organic material,Expand

Decadal-Scale Changes of Dinoflagellates and Diatoms in the Anomalous Baltic Sea Spring Bloom
The algal spring bloom in the Baltic Sea represents an anomaly from the winter-spring bloom patterns worldwide in terms of frequent and recurring dominance of dinoflagellates over diatoms. AnalysisExpand

Nutrient limitation and grazing control of the Baltic plankton community during annual succession
Nutrient limitation and grazing control of the planktonic community were studied in the northern Baltic Sea off the SW coast of Finland during the phytoplankton growth season of 1985. In situExpand

Nitrogen and phosphorus as production limiting factors in the estuarine waters of the eastern Gulf of Finland
The fate and effects of high nutnent loadlng from the River Neva St Petersburg (NW Russia) region was studied in the Neva Estuary and adjacent waters of the eastern Gulf of Finland (Baltic Sea) underExpand

Seasonal phytoplankton nutrient limitation patterns as revealed by bioassays over Baltic Sea gradients of salinity and eutrophication
The in situ P versus N limitation of northern Baltic Sea phytoplankton was studied over 3 seasonal cycles at 6 locations, encompassing the large-scale salinity and eutrophy gradients of the BalticExpand

Beyond bulk properties: Responses of coastal summer plankton communities to nutrient enrichment in the northern Baltic Sea
Enclosure experiments with all combinations of NH4 and PO4 treatments were carried out in the northern Baltic coastal zone during the post‐spring bloom growth season. Empirical models were used toExpand

Inducing autoflocculation in the diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum through CO2 regulation
The effect of pH on flocculation was studied using the diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum and the green algae Scenedesmus cf. obliquus as surrogate species. There was a distinct, species-specificExpand

Specific affinity for phosphate uptake and specific alkaline phosphatase activity as diagnostic tools for detecting phosphorus-limited phytoplankton and bacteria
We analyzed responses of soluble reactive phosphorus (SRP), bioavailable phosphate (PO4), particulate phosphorus, turnover time of orthophosphate (Tt), and alkaline phosphatase activity (APA) toExpand
