Alternative stable states

Project: Research


In our research group we have for many years run continuous monitoring programe for Lake Krankesjön and we have now accumulated a long-term data set on a range of abiotic and biotic variables, including fish, macrophytes,waterfowl, water chemistry, turbidity, phytoplankton and zooplankton. In a collaborative project with paleolimnologist we study the prevalence of regime shifts during historical times. Further, in field and laboratory experiments we study the effects of partial fish migration, snail/periphyton and zooplankton/phytoplankton interactions on the establishment and growth of submerged macrophytes.
