A number of mechanisms can be identified in the biogeochemical cycles of lakes. They imply a temporary or permanent storage of a fraction of some key elements off the cycle, going out of the water and into the atmosphere (oxygen, nitrogen) or in to the sediments (carbon, phosphorus). These bypasses act as hydraulic brakes, slowing down cycles and reducing the amount of the elements involved in them. The whole set of mechanisms acts as a stabilizing agent, and can work or counteract any process…

The physical environment has an important influence on the size composition of primary producers in plankton communities. This effect is transmitted through the trophic structure by size selective
Aquatic Biota and the Detection of Climate Change: Are there Consistent Aquatic Ecotones?
TLDR
There are considerable differences among the three organism groups, suggesting that different environmental factors may influence the rates of compositional change within and among groups.
Plankton and hydrochemistry of Lake Futalaufquen (Patagonia, Argentina) during the growing season
TLDR
N:P relationships, inorganic nitrogen exhaustion in the photic layer, and correlations between nutrients and phytoplankton density suggests nitrogen as the main limiting factor.
Evaluation of the status of lakes located in the City of Olsztyn (Masurian Lake District, N-E Poland) by the macrophytoindication method (MPhI)
Urban lakes belong to various groups, for example from “young” to “old” with regard to development, and from “natural” to “anthropogenic” with respect to transformations due to human activity. The
