A large dataset from 1,077 lakes in Finland, Ireland, Sweden and the United Kingdom was collated to analyse the relationship between nutrient status and occurrence of different taxa, as well as between total phosphorus or chlorophyll and commonly used macroinvertebrate metrics developed for river assessment. We found that most taxa were associated with mesotrophic conditions (sensu OECD). Species associated with oligotrophic status included Baetis rhodani, Gammarus lacustris and plecopteran… CONTINUE READING
