Seasonal variation in phytoplankton composition and physical-chemical features of the shallow Lake Doïrani, Macedonia, Greece

  title={Seasonal variation in phytoplankton composition and physical-chemical features of the shallow Lake Do{\"i}rani, Macedonia, Greece},
  author={M. Temponeras and J\orgen Kristiansen and Maria Moustaka-Gouni},
Phytoplankton species composition, seasonal dynamics and spatial distribution in the shallow Lake Doïrani were studied during the growth season of 1996 along with key physical and chemical variables of the water. Weak thermal stratification developed in the lake during the warm period of 1996. The low N:P ratio suggests that nitrogen was the potential limiting nutrient of phytoplankton in the lake. In the phytoplankton of the lake, Chlorophyceae were the most species-rich group followed by… CONTINUE READING
