In this work, we describe qualitative and quantitative aspects of the cycling of detritus of aquatic macrophytes and carbohydrates in two coastal lagoons of the northeastern part of the State of Rio de Janeiro. Samples of water of the Imboassica and Cabiunas lagoons were enriched with sucrose. Samples of water of the Cabiunas lagoon were also utilized to arrange mineralization chambers with fragments of three species of aquatic macrophytes found in these lagoons (Typha domingensis, Potamogeton…

Oxygen demand during mineralization of aquatic macrophytes from an oxbow lake.
A kinetic model of oxygen consumption during aerobic decomposition of detritus from seven species of aquatic macrophytes from Oleo Lagoon concluded that most of the oxygen demand seems to depend upon the demineralization of the dissolved carbon fraction.
Stoichiometry of aerobic mineralization (O/C) of aquatic macrophytes leachate from a tropical lagoon (São Paulo –Brazil)
In the early phase of mineralization the O/C rates increased before reaching a maximum, after which they tended to decrease, which is believed to be associated with the chemical composition of the leachates, with their transformations and alterations of metabolic pathways involved in the mineralization.

It is concluded that during the aerobic decomposition of these macrophytes, the Nymphaea sp.
The effect of the size of particles on mineralization of Oxycaryum cubense (Poepp. & Kunth) Lye.
The physical process of fragmentation of O. cubense detritus is unlikely to promote the consumption of higher quantities of dissolved oxygen in mineralization processes meaning that fragmentation should not interfere in the balance of DO in this aquatic system, however fragmentation processes favored the acidification and increased the liberation of dissolved ions from the Infernão lagoon.
Implication of anaerobic and aerobic decomposition of Eichhornia azurea (Sw.) Kunth. on the carbon cycling in a subtropical reservoir.
In the Monjolinho Reservoir, the decomposition of E. azurea that undergo within the water column and in upper layers of sediment is a faster process, favoring the mineralization, compared with the diagenetic processes, which are favored in the lower levels of sediment.
Oxygen uptake from aquatic macrophyte decomposition from Piraju Reservoir (Piraju, SP, Brazil).
The kinetics of oxygen consumption related to mineralisation of 18 taxa of aquatic macrophytes from the reservoir of Piraju Hydroelectric Power Plant showed that high oxygen consumption was observed for Ludwigia sp, while the lowest was registered for Eleocharis sp1 (205 mg g-1 DW) mineralisation, and the higher deoxygenation rate constants were verified in the Mineralisation of A. caroliniana, H. raniculoides and U. foliosa.
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).
Diversity of Chironomidae (Diptera) in decomposing Nymphoides indica (L.) Kuntze in two subtropical lakes with different trophic conditions
Chironomids are the most abundant macroinvertebrates in macrophyte detritus. The goal of this study was to characterize the diversity of these animals in decomposing Nymphoides indica and their
Oxygen consumption during mineralization of organic compounds in water samples from a small sub-tropical reservoir (Brazil)
ABSTRACT Assays were carried out to evaluate the oxygen consumption resulting from mineralization of different organiccompounds: glucose, sucrose, starch, tannic acid, lysine and glycine. The


A comparative study of decomposition, oxygen consumption and nutrient release for selected aquatic plants occurring in an estuarine environment
The rank in decomposition rates based on both decrease in original mass and associated oxygen consumption was phytoplankton > macroalga > submersed macrophytes > emergent macrophyte, and rates were directly proportional to the initial nitrogen content of the plant tissues.
The rates of dry matter and nutrient loss from decomposing Potamogeton pectinatus in a brackish south‐temperate coastal lake
Decomposition of Potamogeton pectinatus in Swartvlei, a southern African coastal lake, followed an exponential pattern of decay, providing a rich food source for the abundant filter-feeding animals of the littoral zone in the final stages of decomposition.
