Deep living Planktothrix rubescens modulated by environmental constraints and climate forcing

  title={Deep living Planktothrix rubescens modulated by environmental constraints and climate forcing},
  author={Martin T. Dokulil and Katrin Teubner},
The cyanoprokaryote Planktothrix rubescens has been studied for over four decades in an alpine lake, Mondsee, Austria. We hypothesise that impacts of climate change can be distinguished from other environmental constraints controlling its population dynamics. During thermal stratification, P. rubescens formed a deep chlorophyll maximum in the metalimnion. Seasonal and diurnal depth distributions indicated that Planktothrix lived well below the euphotic zone, at low light levels and moderate… CONTINUE READING
