1. The epipelic algal standing crops were increased by the discharge of thermal effluent into Lake Wabamun, particularly in the discharge canal at station (03–04) and 05. 2. The increase in the standing crop size of the epipelon was due to Oscillatoria amoena and O. borneti in the heated area, while the discharge canal provided the inoculum of the algae for the heated area of the lake. 3. At station (03–04) the increased standing crop size was also a function of increased light penetration to… CONTINUE READING
