Respiration of plankton in two small, polyhumic lakes

  title={Respiration of plankton in two small, polyhumic lakes},
  author={Kalevi Salonen and Kaisa Kononen and Lauri Arvola},
The respiration of plankton of two polyhumic lakes was measured as production of carbon dioxide in dark bottles. The method proved to be enough sensitive for use in oligotrophic lakes with low alkalinity. The respiration of plankton followed broadly changes in temperature. However, the primary production of phytoplankton was probably the main factor governing the seasonal pattern of respiration. During summer the respiration of plankton was more than three times higher than the primary… CONTINUE READING
