Elevated Nutrient Levels from Agriculturally Dominated Watersheds Stimulate Metaphyton Growth

  title={Elevated Nutrient Levels from Agriculturally Dominated Watersheds Stimulate Metaphyton Growth},
  author={Joseph C. Makarewicz and Peter E. D’Aiuto and Isidro Bosch},
The linkage between land use in a catchment basin and downstream aquatic ecosystems, especially effects on algae attached to substrata or loosely aggregated in the littoral zone, represents a void in our understanding of lake systems. The occurrence of beds of metaphyton at some stream mouths and not others in Conesus Lake, NY (USA) provided an opportunity to consider the relationship between land use and phosphorus and nitrogen losses on the development of shoreline metaphyton blooms… CONTINUE READING
