  author={Vesna Per{\vs}i{\'c} and Dubravka {\vC}erba and Irella Bogut and Janja Horvati{\vc}},
The investigated floodplain lake is located in the marginal part of the Kopacki Rit Nature Park, Croatia, a floodplain area of the Danube. In this chapter, we have assessed the influence of hydrological connectivity with the main channel on the trophic state and water quality in the Lake Sakadas. The evaluation of trophic state combines a number of physical, chemical and biological parameters with the objective to select the relevant indicators for the floodplain lakes. The following… Expand

Structure and dynamics of the periphytic ciliate community under different hydrological conditions in a Danubian floodplain lake
Abstract Ciliated protozoans are important constituents of periphytic communities in aquatic habitats, including river-floodplain ecosystems. As the knowledge about the diversity and ecologicalExpand
Key drivers influencing the colonization of periphytic ciliates and their functional role in hydrologically dynamic floodplain lake ecosystem
We investigated the colonization process and community dynamics of periphytic ciliates in a floodplain lake. To elucidate the functional role of ciliates, we investigated variations in theirExpand
Colonisation of temporary macrophyte substratum by midges (Chironomidae: Diptera)
NMDS ordination and cluster analysis separated three main colonization periods based on larval abundance, and RDA analysis indicated the influence of environmental variables, especially Secchi depth, macrophyte dry weight, depth and water temperature, on chironomid community structure. Expand

Interactions between the main stream of large rivers and their floodplains are usually observed, determining gradual changes in environmental variables along a transversal axis. This paper studiesExpand
Dual impact of the flood pulses on the phytoplankton assemblages in a Danubian floodplain lake (Kopački Rit Nature Park, Croatia)
There are several conflicting hypothesis that deal with the influence of flooding in the natural river–floodplain systems. According to the Flood Pulse Concept, the flood pulses are not considered toExpand
Hydrology as a major factor determining plankton development in two floodplain segments and the River Danube, Austria
In Austria, downstream of Vienna, the River Danube and two floodplain segments were compared, based on their hydrological and physico-chemical conditions, and the biomass ratio of phyto- to bacterioplankton declined asHydrological connectivity decreased. Expand
Alternation of Factors Affecting Bacterioplankton Abundance in the Danube River Floodplain (Kopački Rit, Croatia)
The purpose of this investigation was to determine the influence of different phases of the hydrological cycle on the abundance of colony-forming units (CFU) of bacteria in the Kopački Rit floodplainExpand
Changes in N and P limitation induced by water level fluctuations in Nature Park Kopački Rit (Croatia): nutrient enrichment bioassay
The effect of frequency and duration of flooding on nutrient limitation in a riparian floodplain and the increase of total nitrogen concentrations in 2004 calls attention to the importance of nitrogen inputs from the Danube to the system with excessive phosphorus concentrations. Expand
The impact of surface water exchange on the nutrient and particle dynamics in side-arms along the River Danube, Austria.
The hydrologic parameters were useful predictors for evaluating the effects of restoration measures in river floodplain systems and water age demonstrates the temporal patterns of riverine input, the development of plankton production and the shift between hydrological and biological control of phytoplankton vs. riverine flow in a side-arm.
