The effect of one-year-old common carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) on plants and seedlings of Potamogeton pectinatus L., and on periphyton development was studied in 100 l glass aquaria. Two 30-day experiments were conducted using a muddy sediment or a pebbly bottom. In both cases, three treatments based on different fish size (two fish/aquarium) were assayed. The control had no fish. In both experiments, chlorophyll content of the periphyton increased from the beginning to the end of the period, for… 
Effects of waterfowl, large fish and periphyton on the spring growth of Potamogeton pectinatus L. in Lake Mogan, Turkey
It is suggested that even if waterfowl and large fish are in high densities, their effect on fennel pondweed spring growth in lakes with abundant submerged vegetation, such as Lake Mogan, is low.
Effects of a rapidly increasing population of common carp on vegetative cover and waterfowl in a recently restored Midwestern shallow lake
Although the common carp (Cyprinus carpio), an invasive benthic fish from Eurasia, has long been strongly implicated in the disappearance of vegetative cover and reduced waterfowl abundance in North
Response of epiphytic algae to nutrient loading and fish density in a shallow lake: a mesocosm experiment
Fish indirect effects and their dietary particularities were among the factors that together with nutrients influenced epiphyton growth and the role of indirect effects of fishes and the importance of their culinary particularities are stressed as key factors to understand the processes controlling epipHYton ecology and the food web structure of shallow lakes.
Experimental Evidence for the Effects of Common Carp ( Cyprinus carpio L . , 1758 ) on Freshwater Ecosystems : A Narrative Review with Management Directions for Turkish Inland Waters
The management of common carp Cyprinus carpio has become a priority issue in most of its native range and where it has been introduced. This is because of the effects (both documented and anecdotal)
Spatial Distribution and Ecophysiological Characteristics of Macrophytes in a Mediterranean Coastal Lagoon
In October P. pectinatus coverage and production decreased, which was related to high turbidity and density of benthivorous fish due to freshwater inflows, and Implications of lower freshwater inflow and higher seawater intrusion in the spatial distribution of aquatic macrophytes in this coastal lagoon are discussed.
Differential effects of age-structured common carp (Cyprinus carpio) stocks on pond invertebrate communities: implications for recreational and wildlife use of farm ponds
The relatively sparse submerged vegetation cover and low water transparency in ponds with older fish stocks compared to ponds with young-of-the-year carp indicate a transition to a turbid water state mediated by a trophic cascade mechanism in the presence of older-age fish.
Habitat selection and reproductive success of coot Fulica atra on ponds under different fish size and density conditions
Coot breeding densities were higher on ponds with low biomass of small-sized, young-of-the-year fish than on pond with medium- or large-sized fish, stocked at high biomass densities, indicating that either plant food abundance was more important than the overall trophic impact of fish or fledgling production was additionally limited by factors other than food.

Effect of carp, Cyprinus carpio L., an exotic benthivorous fish, on aquatic plants and water quality in experimental ponds.
Under high impact conditions, carp had a significant effect on water quality, habitat structure and pond physical characteristics and under low impact conditions the uprooting rate of Vallisneria was reduced to a third, and contrary to the results of previous studies, there was no evidence of increased nutrients or greater algal biomass in ponds with carp.
Experimental manipulations of the biomass of introduced carp (Cyprinus carpio) in billabongs. II. Impacts on benthic properties and processes.
Two billabongs on the floodplain of the Murrumbidgee River, Australia, were partitioned in half with impermeable plastic barriers and the biomass of carp was manipulated to establish high- and
Effects of carp, Cyprinus carpio L., on communities of aquatic vegetation and turbidity of waterbodies in the lower Goulburn River basin
Densities of carp, ranges of turbidity, and details of communities of aquatic vegetation from 1979 to 1982 are given for several waterbodies in the Goulburn River valley including the Broken River,
Diets and feeding behaviour
The method of feeding, differences in efficiency and the importance of the gill-raker system are described, followed by a section on switching in feeding modes and food organisms in relation to these major feeding modes.
Intraspecific variation in Potamogeton pectinatus L.: a controlled laboratory experiment.
In a controlled laboratory experiment, the question was addressed whether intraspecific variation in Potamogeton pectinatus L. has a genotypic component. Two populations from contrasting habitats in
Adaptations to benthic freshwater herbivory
Long periods of exposure, lack of alternative food for herbivores, and a vegetative mode of reproduction are factors suggested to enhance the adaptive value of the production of secondary substances by aquatic macrophytes.
Periphyton dynamics in a temperature-light gradient
Periphyton was cultured on glass slides in a laboratory set-up combining three temperatures (10, 15 and 20 °C) and three irradiances (50, 100 and 200 μE m−2 s−1), with nutrient concentrations
