While considerable insights on the ecological consequences of climate change have been gained from studies conducted on remote lakes, little has been done on lakes under direct human exposure. Ecosystem vulnerability and responses to climate warming might yet largely depend on the ecological state and thus on local anthropogenic pressures. We tested this hypothesis through a paleolimnological approach on three temperate large lakes submitted to rather similar climate warming but varying… Expand

Sensitivity and responses of diatoms to climate warming in lakes heavily influenced by humans
SUMMARY 1. Diatom communities have been shown to respond strongly to current climate warming in remotelakes, while evidence remains equivocal for lakes under strong local human pressures.2. TemporalExpand
High-resolution paleolimnology opens new management perspectives for lakes adaptation to climate warming
Varved lake sediments provide opportunities for high-resolution paleolimnological investigations that may extend monitoring surveys in order to target priority management actions under climateExpand
Reframing Lake Geneva ecological trajectory in a context of multiple but asynchronous pressures
Regime shifts are major reorganization of ecological processes, creating new sets of mechanisms that drive the new ecological regime. Such rearrangements can affect how and how much the systemExpand
Long-term variability of zooplankton community under climate warming in tropical eutrophic man-made lake

Climate warming restructures an aquatic food web over 28 years.
This paper documents how warming lake temperatures by up to 2°C, rather than changes in trophic state or fishing effort, have restructured the pelagic food web of a large European lake (Lake Maggiore, Italy), and provides rare evidence from nature as to how long-term warming can favour higher troPHic levels, with the potential to strengthen top-down control of food webs.

Inherited hypoxia: A new challenge for reoligotrophicated lakes under global warming
The Anthropocene is characterized by a worldwide spread of hypoxia, among other manifestations, which threatens aquatic ecosystem functions, services, and biodiversity. The primary cause of hypoxiaExpand
Cladocera paleocommunity to disentangle the impact of anthropogenic and climatic stressors on a deep subalpine lake ecosystem (Lake Iseo, Italy)
In big lakes with strong anthropogenic pressure, it is usually difficult to disentangle the impacts of climate variability from those driven by eutrophication. The present work aimed at theExpand
Spatiotemporal patterns of cladoceran community responses to water level variation in Haixi Lake, southwest China
ABSTRACT Hydrological regulation of lakes has been increasingly practiced around the world, with significant ecological consequences. However, little is known on how lake regulation affects communityExpand
Paleoecological evidence for a multi-trophic regime shift in a perialpine lake (Lake Joux, Switzerland)
Abstract Freshwater ecosystems are under new and increasing threats from anthropogenic change. Ability to detect and predict consequences of environmental perturbations on ecosystem function andExpand
A century of human‐driven changes in the carbon dioxide concentration of lakes
Now that evasion of carbon dioxide (CO2) from inland waters is accounted for in global carbon models, it is crucial to quantify how these fluxes have changed in the past and forecast how they mayExpand


Climate change and lakes: Estimating sensitivities of water and carbon budgets
[1] As humanity develops strategies to manage and adapt to climate change, potential changes to carbon cycles are of increasing interest. The potential sensitivity of carbon sources and sinks inExpand
Impacts of climate warming on lake fish community structure and potential effects on ecosystem function
Fish play a key role in the trophic dynamics of lakes, not least in shallow systems. With climate warming, complex changes in fish community structure may be expected owing to the direct and indirectExpand
Spatial variability of climate and land-use effects on lakes of the northern Great Plains
Evaluation of the effects of climate change and human activities on lakes requires improved understanding of how stressors interact and the degree to which individual sentinel lakes represent broadExpand
Warming modifies trophic cascades and eutrophication in experimental freshwater communities.
The results suggest that higher temperatures may shift the control of primary production in freshwater ponds toward stronger top-down and weaker bottom-up effects, and the dampened temporal variability of algal biomass under eutrophication at higher temperatures suggests that warming may stabilize some ecosystem processes.

A long-term decline in Daphnia populations, the keystone herbivore, is associated with an expanding temporal mismatch with the spring diatom bloom and may have severe consequences for resource flow to upper trophic levels. Expand
Consequences of elevated temperatures for zooplankton assemblages in temperate lakes
It is hypothesized that certain cold-water zooplankton species show the greatest risk of local extinction during late summer heating events because of their dependence on thermal refugia, and their lack of diapausing or dispersal stages. Expand
The effect of climate on long-term changes in the crustacean zooplankton biomass of Lake Windermere, UK
It is shown that year-to-year fluctuations in the biomass of crustacean zooplankton in Lake Windermere, in the United Kingdom, are strongly correlated with variations in water temperature, but poorly correlated with the abundance of the dominant plank-tivorous fish. Expand
