We linked the models PROTECH and MyLake to test potential impacts of climate-changeinduced warming on the phytoplankton community of Pyhäjärvi, a lake in southwest Finland. First, we calibrated the models for the present conditions, which revealed an apparent high significance of internal nutrient loading for Pyhäjärvi. We then estimated the effect of two climate change scenarios on lake water temperatures and ice cover duration with MyLake. Finally, we used those outputs to drive PROTECH to predict the resultant phytoplankton community. It was evident that cyanobacteria will grow significantly better in warmer water, especially in the summer. Even if phosphorus and nitrogen loads to the lake remain the same and there is little change in the total chlorophyll a concentrations, a higher proportion of the phytoplankton community could be dominated by cyanobacteria. The model outputs provided no clear evidence that earlier ice break would advance the timing of the diatom spring bloom. ...

Differing Daphnia magna assimilation efficiencies for terrestrial, bacterial, and algal carbon and fatty acids Taipale, Sami; Brett, Michael T.; Hahn, Martin W.; Martin-Creuzburg, Dominik; Yeung, Sean; Hiltunen, Minna; Strandberg, Ursula; Kankaala, Paula (Ecological Society of America, 2014)There is considerable interest in the pathways by which carbon and growthlimiting elemental and biochemical nutrients are supplied to upper trophic levels. Fatty acids and sterols are among the most important molecules ...
Unveiling distribution patterns of freshwater phytoplankton by a next generation sequencing based approach Eiler, Alexander; Drakare, Stina; Bertilsson, Stefan; Pernthaler, Jakob; Peura, Sari; Rofner, Carina; Simek, Karel; Yang, Yang; Znachor, Petr; Lindström, Eva S (Public Library of Science, 2013)The recognition and discrimination of phytoplankton species is one of the foundations of freshwater biodiversity research and environmental monitoring. This step is frequently a bottleneck in the analytical chain from ...
Bacterial and phytoplankton responses to nutrient amendments in a boreal lake differ according to season and to taxonomic resolution Peura, Sari; Eiler, Alexander; Hiltunen, Minna; Nykänen, Hannu; Tiirola, Marja; Jones, Roger (Public Library of Science, 2012)Nutrient limitation and resource competition in bacterial and phytoplankton communities may appear different when considering different levels of taxonomic resolution. Nutrient amendment experiments conducted in a boreal ...
Salmi, Pauliina; Salonen, Kalevi (American Society of Limnology and Oceanography, Inc., 2016)The development of phytoplankton biomass and composition in a eutrophic boreal lake was studied during the evolution of under-ice convection in spring. The results from 8 yr showed that, within a few weeks before ice-break, ...
