Factors influencing Gonyostomum semen blooms in a small boreal reservoir lake

  title={Factors influencing Gonyostomum semen blooms in a small boreal reservoir lake},
  author={David L. Findlay and J. J. Paterson and L. L. Hendzel and Hedy J. Kling},
Blooms of the nuisance alga Gonyostomum semen occurred in Lake 979 (Experimental Lakes Area), a small brown-water lake, that was subjected to several years of an experimental flooding regime. During periods of flooding, blooms of G. semen developed when light decreased below 100μmolm−2s−1 and total phosphorous concentrations increased to >30μgl−1. Gonyostomum semen biomass was significantly correlated with total P and DOC concentrations. In addition, G. semen abundance increased at times when… CONTINUE READING
