Content Description top ↑

The multidisciplinary comparative study presented in this work was made on two eutrophic lakes of similar size and depth, but contrasting phytoplankton species composition: Lake Okaro and Lake Rotongaio, both in the central North Island of New Zealand. It offers an opportunity to evaluate many of the variables which influence the growth and persistence of bloom-forming cyanobacteria.

The first part of Vol. 33 contains abstracts of the "International Conference on Reservoir Limnology and Water Quality" held at České Budéjovice, Czechoslovakia, in June 1987. The abstracts are dealing with topics such as sediments, dynamics of zooplankton and suspended matter in the water column, variations of physiochemical parameters or the effect of reservoir on the climate in a near-shore zone.
