Recovery of Potamogeton pectinatus L. stands in a shallow eutrophic lake under extreme grazing pressure

  author={Sabine Hilt},
In shallow lakes, submerged macrophytes contribute to the stabilization of the clear water state. If lost, a number of mechanisms prevent re-colonization. Lake Müggelsee (730 ha) lost its submerged vegetation due to increasing eutrophication and switched to phytoplankton dominance in 1970. After the reduction of nutrient loading in 1990, Potamogeton pectinatus L. started re-colonizing the lake. During the following years, it spread at a mean rate of 2.5 ha per year to all available areas <80 cm… CONTINUE READING
