Benthic community response (primarily Chironomidae) to nutrient enrichment and alkalinization in shallow, soft water humic lakes


, : Benthic community response (primarily Chironomidae) to nutrient enrichment and alkalinization in shallow, soft water humic lakes. Hydrobiologia, 2151: 73-82

A comparison of the benthic fauna found in 2 shallow lakes in the New Jersey Pinelands, USA, illustrated the impact of elevated pH and nutrients caused by residential and agricultural disturbance on a naturally acidic, poorly buffered aquatic environment.

The composition of benthos in a series of 29 lake and peat pool sites is examined especially in relation to a successional gradient. The results indicate a sharp distinction between the fauna of peat pools and lakes. Chironomus, Psectrocladius, Mo...

Competition for resources between coexisting phytoplankton and benthic algae, but with different habitats and roles in functioning of lake ecosystems, profoundly affects dynamics of shallow lakes in the process of eutrophication.

Measures taken to combat eutrophication resulted in a decrease in phytoplankton chlorophyll and an increase in transparency to the lakes studied.

Disturbance is a key structuring force influencing shallow water communities at all latitudes. Polar nearshore communities are intensely disturbed by ice, yet little is known about benthic recovery following iceberg groundings. Understanding patt...
