Performance of a new phytoplankton composition metric along a eutrophication gradient in Nordic lakes

Abstract

A new phytoplankton metric is presented, which is developed from a large dataset of Norwegian lakes (>2,000 samples from >400 lakes). In contrast to previous metrics, this index is not built on selected ‘indicative’ taxa, but uses all available taxonomic information at genus and species level. Taxa optima with respect to lake trophic status (derived from… (More)
