Large fluvial lakes are understudied with respect to their underwaterlight climates. Fluvial lakes pose unique challenges for photobiologistsinterested in the interactions amongst light climate, nutrients and microbialcommunity structure and biodiversity. This is because fluvial lakes are typifiedby highly dynamic flow regimes often incorporating different inflows anddischarges each characterized by their own unique physico-chemical composition.These compositional characteristics include the… CONTINUE READING
