Controlling factors of spring–summer phytoplankton succession in Lake Taihu (Meiliang Bay, China)

  title={Controlling factors of spring–summer phytoplankton succession in Lake Taihu (Meiliang Bay, China)},
  author={Zhixin Ke and Zhanfeng Wang and Longgen Guo},
The spring–summer successions of phytoplankton and crustacean zooplankton were examined weekly in Meiliang Bay of the subtropical Lake Taihu in 2004 and 2005. During the study period, the ecosystem of Meiliang Bay was characterized by (i) clearly declined nitrogen compounds (nitrate, TN, and ammonium) and slowly increased phosphorus compounds (TP and SRP), (ii) increased total phytoplankton density and rapid replacement of chlorophyta (mainly Ulothrix) by cyanobacteria (mainly Microcystis), and… CONTINUE READING
