Origin, concentration, availability and fate of dissolved organic carbon in coastal lagoons of the Rio de Janeiro State
As lagoas costeiras do norte do Estado do Rio de Janeiro apresentam um amplo gradiente de carbono orgânico dissolvido (COD) e coloracao da agua, com as maiores concentracoes registradas na
The role played by aquatic macrophytes regarding CO2 balance in a tropical coastal lagoon (Cabiúnas Lagoon, Macaé, RJ)
AIM: Carbon dioxide (CO2) is an important atmospheric trace gas that is involved in both the biological carbon cycle and global warming. Inland waters - mainly lakes - contribute to C cycling and
Aquatic Macrophytes Detritus Quality and Sulfate Availability Shape the Methane Production Pattern in a Dystrophic Coastal Lagoon
Aquatic macrophytes usually show high productivity rate, especially in shallow environments, and may constitute the main source of organic matter to these ecosystems. The coastal lagoons are shallow
Potential Methane Production Associated with Aquatic Macrophytes Detritus in a Tropical Coastal Lagoon
Anaerobic decomposition of aquatic macrophytes in the sediment of wetlands is a key source of methane to the atmosphere. An experiment was conducted in order to evaluate the potential methane
Zooplankton allochthony is spatially heterogeneous in a boreal lake
Summary The proportion of consumer biomass from terrestrial origin (i.e. allochthony) has been shown to vary greatly among lakes and also seasonally, but has been assumed to be spatially homogeneous
Emergent Macrophytes Alter the Sediment Composition in a Small, Shallow Subtropical Lake: Implications for Methane Emission
Aquatic macrophytes in shallow lakes emit high levels of methane. We hypothesize that the presence of emergent aquatic macrophytes in an artificial shallow lake promotes important input of
Effect of light on particulate and dissolved organic matter production of native and exotic macrophyte species in Patagonia
The invasion by macrophytes may produce changes in the stoichiometric balance and ecological relationships that could modify the characteristics of wetland food web.
Flooding affects food web structure and basal sources supporting fish guilds in a subtropical wetland and shallow lake
Aquatic ecosystems exchange nutrients and organic matter with surrounding terrestrial ecosystems, and floods import allochthonous material from riparian areas into fluvial systems. We surveyed food


A mesocosm study of aerobic mineralization of seven aquatic macrophytes
Bacterial production and biomass were significantly higher in experiments with leachate addition, in both lagoons, in comparison to the controls, indicating that DOM from the macrophyte has a positive ini1ucncc on bacterial growth.
Methane concentration in water column and in pore water of a coastal lagoon (Cabiúnas lagoon, Macaé, RJ, Brazil)
ABSTRACT The aim of this study was to evaluate methane concentration in water column and pore water at limnetic and littoral regions of a coastal lagoon. At the littoral region samples were taken
Nutrient Element Limitation of Zooplankton Production

Freshwater crustacean zooplankton species show pronounced interspecific variability but approach intraspecific homeostasis in their stoichiometry, and the possibility of direct nutrient element limitation has wide implications for the regulation of herbivore production, competition, and overall cycling of nutrients in epilimnetic waters.
Effects of the Sand Bar Breaching on Typha domingensis (PERS.) in a Tropical Coastal Lagoon
Coastal lagoons are usually subjected to several kinds of human impacts, especially eutrophication. The breaching of the sand bar, which separates the lagoon from the ocean, by human action, is a
The Influence of the Chemical Composition of Typha Domingensis and Nymphaea Ampla Detritus on Invertebrate Colonization During Decomposition in a Brazilian Coastal Lagoon
The results showed that the slow breakdown rate of T. domingensis detritus provided a higher probability for colonization and that the main driving force structuring the invertebrates' community was degradative ecological succession (DES).
Microbial food webs in the dark: independence of Lake Plankton from recent algal production
It is indicated that a microbial food web, based on allochthonous organic matter and developing independently from phytoplankton, can act as a link to metazoan zooplankon, especially in oligotrophic humic lakes, as well as confirm studies using stable C isotopes, showing a substantial incorporation of terrestrial carbon into zoopLankton.
Ecophysiology of selected tree species in different plant communities at the periphery of the Atlantic Forest of SE Brazil I. Performance of three different species of Clusia in an array of plant communities
Three species of Clusia were studied in different plant communities at the periphery of the Atlantic Forest in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to discuss differences between the ecophysiological performance of C3- and CAM-species ofclusia.
Control of zooplankton dependence on allochthonous organic carbon in humic and clear-water lakes in northern Sweden
We compared the stable carbon isotopic composition (δ13C) of crustacean zooplankton with that of potential carbon sources in 15 lakes in northern Sweden with different dissolved organic carbon (DOC)
