Submerged macrophytes are a major component of freshwater ecosystems, yet their net effect on water column phosphorus (P), algae, and bacterioplankton is not well understood. A 4-month mass-balance study during the summer quantified the net effect of a large (∼5.5 ha) undisturbed macrophyte bed on these water-column properties. The bed is located in a slow-flowing (0.05–0.1 cm s−1) channel between two lakes, allowing for the quantification of inputs and outputs. The P budget for the study… CONTINUE READING
