Eight upland tundra lakes (3 undisturbed [U], 5 disturbed [D]) in the Inuvik region of the Northwest Territories, Canada, were sampled to assess the effects of SRTS on benthic invertebrate community structure, abundance, and whether localized SRTS effects Cited by:

Benthic macroinvertebrate communities are useful indicators of ecological condition for the Great Lakes (Cook and Johnson, ; Wiederholm, ). Benthic macroinvertebrates are closely associated with lake sediments, and are impacted by changes in physical and chemical characteristics of the sediments and of the overlying water.

Are Benthic Grazers Food-Limited. Because periphyton is a valuable food resource in aquatic ecosystems, its abundance may influence the physiological fitness of herbivores. Hill et al. () demonstrated that Elimia snails and Neophylax caddis flies were strongly food-limited in a small woodland stream, and grew faster when they were supplied with.

Trends in benthic macroinvertebrate populations are an excellent indicator of ecosystem health in the Great Lakes. Presently, wide-scale population changes are occurring in many lake areas as a result of decreased nutrient loads and the introduction and spread of.

Dreissenid mussels have invaded the Laurentian Great Lakes causing dramatic changes to benthic–pelagic interactions. Despite research on food web impacts, there is.

The first section introduces the locations of benthic algae in different ecosystems, like streams, large rivers, lakes, and other aquatic habitats. The second section is devoted to the various factors, both biotic and abiotic, that affect benthic freshwater algae.5/5(1).

During growth, benthic algal blooms act as a nutrient sink and can deplete N and/or P supplies in surrounding waters. Along the northeast shore of Lake Erie, the spring growth phase of Cladophora produ ton of dry mass and removed 15 ton of P within 30 days (Higgins et al., ).

Benthic algal communities in the Laurentian Great Lakes (USA and Canada) have been strongly affected by the invasion of dreissenid mussels. Early () studies in Saginaw Bay, Lake Huron.

BIOMASS AND NUTRIENT STATUS OF BENTHIC ALGAE IN LAKES This thesis is based on the following papers, which will be referred to in the text by their Roman numerals: I MARIA KAHLERT (): C:N:P ratios of freshwater benthic algae.- Arch.

It grows on submerged rocks, logs or other hard surfaces. Because of Lake Michigan's excellent water clarity, it has been observed growing underwater at depths of more than.

Most benthic algal taxa found in lakes also can be found in lotic systems, but assemblages and taxa differ in a number of ways. The ecological characteristics of some lake benthic algae reflect habitat coupling. Littoral zones (benthic areas above the light compensation depth) are Cited by: The purpose of this study is to test whether benthic algal communities exposed to different regimes of natural environmental variability in the littoral zones of lakes show consistent differences in biomass, overall taxonomic composition (e.g.

diatoms, green algae, and cyanobacteria), and diversity. Benthic algae are an ideal. antarctic lakes contain luxuriant benthic mosses (Sand-Jensen et al. ) or thick algal mats (Vincent et al.

Quesada et al. ), implying a different growth strategy and nutrient regime in the benthic zone relative to the overlying water column. In shallow lakes of.

We studied the effects of short-term climatic fluctuation on profundal benthic invertebrates using at least six annual samples (over 6–17 years) from 38 Finnish lake basins. Faunal abundance, species diversity and species composition were related to Cited by: 4.

Populations of the benthic amphipod Diporeia, which serve as a rich food source to many important fishes in the Great Lakes, are declining. Invasive zebra and quagga mussels populations are increasing in the Great Lakes, having an extreme effect on both the water quality and lake bottom composition.

In the spring ofThree Lakes Association (TLA) retained the services of two professors (internationally recognized diatom experts), Rex Lowe and R. Jan Stevenson, to work with TLA’s volunteers to design and conduct an investigation of golden brown benthic algae (GBA) in Torch Lake.

Their complete scientific reports, are available here. To date, few algal studies have been carried out in coastal wetlands of the Laurentian Great Lakes. These ecosystems are important to study because of the tremendous biodiversity values associated with them (Chow-Fraser and Albert ) and because significant wetland destruction has already oc-curred along most of the Great Lakes shoreline.

The Aquatic Science Section of the Ontario Ministry of Environment and Energy (MOEE) conducted a programme to assess the composition of benthic invertebrate communities in acidstressed softwater.We define lake order as follows: 3 indicates isolated seepage lakes, -2 indicates seepage lakes connected by intermittent streams, -1 indicates seepage lakes connected by a wetland, 0 indicates headwater drainage lakes, and 1 through 4 indicate drainage lakes, with the number indicating the order of the stream that exits the lake (Riera et al.

Benthic algal communities can play an important role in matter and energy flux of shallow lakes. Their contribution to total primary production of lakes has been largely unexplored. The aim of this study was to estimate the primary production of the epipsammic algal communities at different water depths in Lake Balaton (Hungary) with Cited by:
