Drivers of plankton populations in the Baltic Sea

Plankton are at the base of the food chain, and identifying their drivers is important for understanding how climate change will impact populations and communities. The main aim of my thesis was to

The pelagic food web

1. Environmental drivers and food web structure in the pelagic zone vary from south to north in the Baltic Sea. 2. While nitrogen is generally the limiting nutrient for primary

Does plankton diversity peak at intermediate salinities? Comment on Telesh et al. (2011)

It is suggested that spatially representative data are required for elucidating patterns of plankton richness along the freshwater-marine continuum, and that the analysis should address both species rich- ness and community composition by appropriate statistical tools.

Microzooplankton, the missing link in Finnish plankton monitoring programs

Finnish plankton monitoring is divided into phytoplankton and mesozooplankton sampling. Using the phytoplankton protocol, we included all organisms identified in samples from the Baltic Sea during

Study of the seasonality and hydrology as drivers of phytoplankton abundance and composition in a shallow estuary, Weeks Bay, Alabama (USA)

Small, shallow estuaries can be highly vulnerable to land use changes, eutrophication and habitat loss but are understudied with respect to their larger counterparts. Where they are monitored, the

Coping with persistent environmental problems : systemic delays in reducing eutrophication of the Baltic Sea

Shifting Diatom—Dinoflagellate Dominance During Spring Bloom in the Baltic Sea and its Potential Effects on Biogeochemical Cycling

The Baltic Sea is affected by a range of human induced environmental pressures such as eutrophication. Here we synthesize the ongoing shift from diatom dominance towards more dinoflagellates in parts

The northern Baltic Sea phytoplankton communities in 1903–1911 and 1993–2005: a comparison of historical and modern species data

Despite over 100 years of phytoplankton research in the Baltic Sea, little is known about how the species composition has changed during this period, characterised by severe anthropogenic

Isotope baseline shifts in pelagic food webs of the Gulf of Mexico

Diazotrophic inputs by Trichodesmium have been shown to support production in tropical and subtropical marine environments, but the importance of Trichodesmium in the Gulf of Mexico has not been

A study of episodic events in the Baltic Sea – combined in situ and satellite observations

Abstract A project was developed concerning the operational system of surveillance and the recording of episodic events in the Baltic Sea. In situ information was to be combined with multi-sensory



The History of Eutrophication in the Sea Area of Helsinki in the 20th Century

A historical continuum of nearly 100 years of environmental investigations and changes in trophic levels in the sea area of Helsinki is presented, based on a re-examination of original planktological and meteorological data, showing that eutrophication can be detected in plankton assemblages despite changes in methodology.

Silicon in the marine environment : Dissolved silica trends in the Baltic Sea

Species-specific responses of a cyanobacteriadominated phytoplankton community to artificial nutrient limitation in the Baltic Sea

The results highlight the diverse nutritional and growth strategies of the bloom-forming cyanobacterial species and suggest that eutrophication management decisions in the Baltic Sea should inevitably consider simultaneous reduction of both N and P.

Spreading and Establishment of the Potentially Toxic Dinoflagellate Prorocentrum minimum in the Baltic Sea

Biometric data show that P. minimum can grow at salinities below 5 PSU, confirming its potential to penetrate farther into the low saline part of the Baltic Sea.

Multi-level trophic cascades in a heavily exploited open marine ecosystem

This work shows for the first time a four-level community-wide trophic cascade in the open Baltic Sea, and suggests that in order to dampen the occasionally harmful algal blooms of the Baltic, effort should be addressed not only to control anthropogenic nutrient inputs but also to preserve structure and functioning of higher Trophic levels.

Hypoxia in the Baltic Sea and basin-scale changes in phosphorus biogeochemistry.

Analysis of data from 1970 to 2000 at the basin scale shows that the estimated volume of water with oxygen was actually at a minimum at the end of the longest so-called stagnation period on record, and addresses the legacy of eutrophication on a basinwide scale.
