  • : Data from seven diverse lakes with reasonably complete nutrient budgets and estimates of annual areal nitrogen fixation (AANF) were used to evaluate the proposition that nitrogen fixation (NF) declines as the ratio TN:TP in lake loadings increases. The results do not support the conclusion that the rate of AANF in lakes is related to the N:P ratio in externally generated influents, although low N:P nutrient loading ratios often favor blue-green algae capable of NF.
