  1. 1. Carbon metabolism in clear-water and brown-water lakes

    University dissertation from Umeå : Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap, Department of Ecology and Environmental Sciences

    Author : Jenny Ask; Jan Karlsson; Mats Jansson; Rolf Vinebrooke; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; clear-water lakes; brown-water lakes; primary production; bacterial production; benthic; pelagic; net ecosystem production; allochthonous organic carbon; CO2; DOC; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Exogenous earth sciences Physical geography; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Exogen geovetenskap Naturgeografi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Freshwater ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestrisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Limnisk ekologi; limnologi; Limnology; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : The trophic state of lakes is commonly defined by the concentration of nutrients in the water column. High nutrient concentrations generate high phytoplankton production, and lakes with low nutrient concentrations are considered low-productive. READ MORE

  2. 2. Food Quality for Zooplankton in Humic Lakes

    University dissertation from Lund University, Ecology Department/ Limnology

    Author : Kelly Gutseit; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; limnology; Hydrobiology; marine biology; Clear water lakes; Plankton; Seston; Elements; Fatty acids; Humic lakes; Food quality; Zooplankton; limnologi; akvatisk ekologi; aquatic ecology; Marinbiologi;

    Abstract : Food quality affects growth, reproduction and community structure of zooplankton, and has implications for nutrient cycling and the transfer of energy and matter in aquatic food chains. While the issue of food quality in clear water lakes has received great recent attention, studies on food quality for zooplankton in humic lakes are scarce. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hydrodynamics of very shallow lakes - A study in Lake Krankesjön, Sweden

    University dissertation from Lund University, Ecology Department/ Limnology

    Author : Charlotta Borell Lövstedt; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; alternative stable states; field measurements; reed; resuspension; wave damping; waves; differential heating; vegetation; convective currents;

    Abstract : Shallow lakes have great ecological and recreational values. They are also largely affected by humans, mainly through eutrophication, and great efforts are therefore being put into the understanding of these ecosystems. The knowledge is however not complete, and more research is needed to manage these lakes in a sustainable way. READ MORE

  4. 4. Acidification trends in Swedish lakes an assessment of past water chemistry conditions using lake sediments

    University dissertation from Lund University, Ecology Department/ Limnology

    Author : Tom Korsman; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Palaeolimnology; acidification history; alkalization; acid deposition; land-use; lake sediments; near infrared spectroscopy; diatoms; multivariate calibration; Sweden;

    Abstract : This thesis presents temporal perspectives of lake acidification in Sweden. Sediment records have been used to study timing, trends and causes of acidification, and two different techniques for assessing past lake-water acidity are presented. READ MORE

  5. 5. Waterfowl herbivory on submerged macrophytes in eutrophic lakes

    University dissertation from Håkan Sandsten, Ecology Building, 22362 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Håkan Sandsten; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; limnology; Marinbiologi; limnologi; Hydrobiology; Växtekologi; Plant ecology; akvatisk ekologi; Djurekologi; Animal ecology; Anas; Fulica atra; Cygnus; alternative stable states; water depth; distribution; plant species composition; hydrophytes; propagule size; Herbivory; tuber; Potamogeton; marine biology; aquatic ecology;

    Abstract : Submerged macrophytes are thought to stabilize clear-water states of shallow lakes. The aim of this thesis was to elucidate how waterfowl herbivory can affect abundance, distribution and species composition of submerged macrophytes in eutrophic lakes. READ MORE
