Nitrogen limitation of the phytobenthos in Alpine lakes: results from nutrient-diffusing substrata

1. In the Alps, as in other mountainous regions across the world, nitrogen (N) enrichment of ecosystems via atmospheric deposition is a major environmental concern. Nitrogen enrichment can cause

Coastal planktonic community unaffected by Boreal hydropower complex in Québec, Canada

The study concluded that modulation of the Rivière Romaine discharge and related changes in water quality did not lead to measurable change in plankton production in the Chenal de Mingan.

Elemental Ratios Link Environmental Change and Human Health

Humans have fundamentally altered the cycling of multiple elements on a global scale. These changes impact the structure and function of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, with many implications for

Phosphorus Loadings to the World's Largest Lakes: Sources and Trends

Eutrophication is a major water quality issue in lakes worldwide and is principally caused by the loadings of phosphorus from catchment areas. It follows that to develop strategies to mitigate

Nitrogen fixation does not axiomatically lead to phosphorus limitation in aquatic ecosystems

A long-standing debate in ecology deals with the role of nitrogen and phosphorus in management and restoration of aquatic ecosystems. It has been argued that nutrient reduction strategies to combat

Onondaga Lake is a heavily polluted, saline lake near Syracuse, New York, and green algae persisted in large numbers throughout the summer, and blue-green algae were absent or rare, and absence of blue-greens probably did not result from direct limitat...

Blue-green algae: their excretion of iron-selective chelators enables them to dominate other algae.

During blue-green algal blooms, other algae can be completely suppressed, and iron deprivation induces the production of hydroxamate chelators, which appear to be the agent suppressing other algae.

Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide: Its Role in Maintaining Phytoplankton Standing Crops

The results demonstrate that invasion of atmospheric carbon dioxide may be sufficient to permit eutrophication of any body of water receiving an adequate supply of phosphorus and nitrogen.

Effect of Carbohydrates on the Symbiotic Growth of Planktonic Blue–Green Algae with Bacteria

Removal of phosphorus from sewage effluents is being considered as the preferred method to control eutrophication and the significance of organic matter in lake water has been largely disregarded.

Eutrophication and Recovery in Experimental Lakes: Implications for Lake Management

Combinations of phosphorus, nitrogen, and carbon were added to several small lakes in northwestern Ontario, Canada, at rates similar to those in many culturally eutrophied lakes, and the high affinity of sediments for phosphorus indicate that rapid abatement of eutphication may be expected to follow phosphorus control measures.
