The main focus of this study was to investigate the effects of lime treatment with Ca(OH)2 on a hypereutrophic hardwater lake (Lake Alserio, Northern Italy), focusing on its impact on plankton communities. We performed a mesocosm experiment using two large enclosures, one for treatment and one control, in the lake. The addition of Ca(OH)2 proved to be… CONTINUE READING
