Integrating observed, inferred and simulated data to illuminate environmental change: a limnological case study
(Royal Irish Academy, 2016)
Effective management of aquatic ecosystems requires knowledge of baseline conditions and pastvariations in stressors and their effects in order to mitigate the impacts of future variability and change. This study utilizes ...
Contrasting pelagic plankton in temperate Irish lakes: the relative contribution of heterotrophic, mixotrophic and autotrophic components, and the effects of extreme rainfall events (Pre-published version)
(Taylor & Francis, 2015)
The mobilisation of energy from allocthonous carbon by heterotrophic bacterioplankton can be proportionally more important than autotrophic production in humic lakes. Moreover, increasing levels of dissolved organic carbon ...
