Temperature modulated effects of nutrients on phytoplankton changes in a mountain lake

  title={Temperature modulated effects of nutrients on phytoplankton changes in a mountain lake},
  author={Monica Tolotti and Hansjoerg Thies and Ulrike Nickus and Roland Psenner},
Piburger See, a dimictic mountain lake in Austria, experienced moderate cultural eutrophication in the 1950s. Lake restoration led to a re-oligotrophication in the 1990s with a decrease in seasonal phytoplankton biovolume until the late 1990s, but a reversed trend from the early 2000s onwards. We hypothesize that recent changes in phytoplankton biomass and functional structure are triggered by changes in lake nitrogen and silica concentrations, and we expect climate-related factors to modulate… CONTINUE READING
