Life strategies of selected algae species along the habitat gradient on peat bogs

  author={Urszula Jacuńska},

Autecological studies on some selected algae species were conducted in 1998 and 1999 on transition mires and raised bogs situated in the water and peat-bog nature reserve „Dury” in the Wdecki Landscape Park. Apart from forms co-dominating at all studied sites, such as Penium silvae-nigrae f. parallelum or Anisonema ovale, also forms that occurred occasionally were selected for autecological studies, such as e.g. Tetmemorus brebissonii var. brebissonii occurring in summer, or Chroococcus…

Cyanobacteria Diversity In Kamanos Raised Bog (North-West Lithuania)

Abstract The current study summarised the diversity of cyanobacteria found in various habitats of the second largest raised bog of Lithuania. A total of 56 cyanobacteria species that comprise 19% of



The diversity of the species composition and the life strategy of algae in peatbogs surrounding two dystrophic forest lakes

The number of taxa identified in peatbogs in the Dury Reserve in Tuchola Forest in 1998 and 1999 decreased with distance from the open water, but Desmidaceae were the commonest.

Successional Change in the Planktonic Vegetation: Species, Structures, Scales

Plankton is the community of plants, animals and microbes which are adapted to live suspended in the pelagic of lakes and seas and which are liable to passive entrainment within the motion of the

Life-forms of phytoplankton as survival alternatives in an unstable environment

The best predictor of primary production and of dominant life-forms in phytoplankton is the available externat energy, on which advection and turbulence depend, and this factor overrules more detailed models using light and nutrients as most relevant parameters, and based on laboratory experiments.

r- and K-Selection in Typha

Properties of population samples of three species of Typha conformed to the theory that r-selected genotypes have a greater developmental speed and higher fecundity and there is a selective trade-off between mechanisms contributing to colonization potential and those contributing to competitive potential.

The Ecology of Phytoplankton

Although focussed on one group of organisms, the book develops many concepts relevant to ecology in the broadest sense, and will appeal to graduate students and researchers in ecology, limnology and oceanography.

Scales of disturbance and their role in plankton ecology

The role of hydraulic and hydrographic disturbances in delaying, arresting or diverting successional sequences from achieving stable, climactic equilibria is discussed by reference to case studies.

Effects of water-column mixing on bacteria, phytoplankton, and rotifers under different levels of herbivory in a shallow eutrophic lake

The results suggest that water-column mixing in shallow eutrophic lakes with periodic stratification has a strong effect on the plankton community via enhanced nutrient availability rather than resuspension or reduced light availability.


Patterns of life-history evolution in populations experiencing different kinds of regulation raise some interesting problems, and the evolutionary consequences of density-independent and density-dependent regulation are discussed.

The ecology of freshwater phytoplankton

The phytoplankton-like structure of lakes and rivers has an important role in determining the food web structure of animals and the environment and its role in promoting growth and survival in animals and humans.
