About the Edition

Masters thesis. The influence of changes in discharge and season on the concentration, partitioning, and export of a limiting nutrient, phosphorus, was quantified for two streams in central Alberta from April to October, 1983. Streams studied were Two Creek and Saskwatamau River.

Inphosphorus (P) export was quantified for two streams in Alberta, Canada. The influence of changes in discharge on P concentration and partitioning was examined on an annual and seasonal basis and these data were used to develop empirical models to predict P by:   Temporal dynamics of P concentration during (a) willow, (b) azalea, (c) cypress, and (4) larch litter decomposition in streams, riparian zones, and forest floors.

Across minimally impacted benchmark streams (n = 81) in Florida, spatial variation in mean total P concentrations was large, indicating the. The adsorption of phosphorus to sediment particles plays a key role in phosphorus cycling, especially in streams and rivers impaired by agricultural land use.

Adsorption comprises all physical and chemical processes in which phosphorus is bound to the surface of particles, such as ligand exchange, electrostatic attraction, and ion exchange. Phosphorus (P) transfer during storm events represents a significant part of annual P loads in streams and contributes to eutrophication in downstream water bodies.

To improve understanding of P storm dynamics, automated or semiautomated methods are needed to extract meaningful information from ever‐growing water quality measurement data sets. (). Spatial and temporal variability of stream phosphorus in a New Zealand high‐country agricultural catchment.

Determining the influence of land use and management on sediment P concentrations and P retention in fluvial ecosystems is challenging because of different stressors operating at multiple spatial and temporal scales.

The study streams (and to some degree also riffles within streams) differed in both average level and temporal variation of nutrient concentrations, with the near-natural Juuvanjoki having clearly the lowest and least variable concentrations of both phosphorus and nitrogen (Fig.

1. Urbanisation is an important cause of eutrophication in waters draining urban areas. We determined whether benthic algal biomass in small streams draining urban areas was explained primarily by small‐scale factors (benthic light, substratum type and nutrient concentrations) within a stream, or by catchment‐scale variables that incorporate the interacting multiple impacts of.

Headwater streams are an important feature of the landscape, with their diversity in structure and associated ecological function providing a potential natural buffer against downstream nutrient export.

Phytobenthic communities, dominated in many headwaters by diatoms, must respond to physical and chemical p Macronutrient Cycles. Introduction. The roots of almost all species of tropical rainforest trees contain mycorrhizal fungi (Alexander a). Our aim here is to demonstrate that not only are these fungi central to ecosystem processes such as carbon- and nutrient-cycling, but that they also have the potential to influence biotic interactions between species, and so help to shape the structure and composition of.

A complete ecosystem perspective includes consideration of hierarchical spatial scales in a temporal context. Flow of energy in lotic ecosystems is driven by two alternative energy sources: sunlight regulating in-stream photosynthesis and plant litter derived from the stream-side riparian corridor or.

The natural environment encompasses all living and non-living things occurring naturally, meaning in this case not term is most often applied to the Earth or some parts of Earth. This environment encompasses the interaction of all living species, climate, weather and natural resources that affect human survival and economic activity.

The changes in both physical and chemical properties of interstitial water were investigated within a large gravel bar to determine if the parafluvial zone was a hotspot for nutrient transformations in a lowland eutrophic river, the Doubs (Eastern France).

Interstitial water was sampled in 30 piezometers along five transects across the gravel bar, surface water was sampled in main and.

Temporal dynamics of ES relationships reflected responses to social-environmental changes (figures S1–S2) entailed in each scenario (Qiu et al ) that can shape the provision and interactions of ES.

The temporal dynamics of these planktonic groups were studied in the coastal waters of the southeastern Mediterranean Sea approximately every two weeks for a total of two years.

Heterotrophic bacteria were abundant mostly during late summer and midwinter, and were positively correlated with bacterial production and with N 2 fixation.

A recent water quality assessment (Canada-Alberta Environmentally Sustainable Agreement ) showed that nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) often exceeded water quality guidelines for protection of aquatic life in streams in high and moderately intensive agriculture areas.
