Shoreline algal wash as a factor in reed decline in Lake Constance-Untersee

Abstract

This paper assesses the chemical and mechanical impact of algal wash (Cladophora, Spirogyra, Chara) upon the lakeside reed belt (Phragmites australis) using field mapping methods, bioassays with Scenedesmus acutus in batch culture, and field experiments. Heavy mats of filamentous algae are correlated with a reduction in number of the outermost reed stalks… (More)
