The role of water-level fluctuations in shallow lake ecosystems – workshop conclusions

  title={The role of water-level fluctuations in shallow lake ecosystems – workshop conclusions},
  author={Hugo Coops and Meryem Beklioglu and Thomas L. Crisman},
Discussion and conclusions are presented from a workshop held at Balatonfüred, Hungary in May 2002 on the role of water-level fluctuations on the structure and function of shallow lakes. Water-level regime is regarded to be an important factor for lake ecosystem functioning and affects conservation values. Biota, in particular those living in vegetated areas, respond differentially to changes in hydroperiod dynamics. Extreme water levels may cause shifts between the turbid and the clear… CONTINUE READING
