Abstract

Physical and chemical changes in limed Peter Lakes, Michigan, included increases in pH, alkalinity, dissolved inorganic carbon concentration, transparency, oxygen content and summer heat content. These changes occurred rapidly in 1951 and have persisted with little variability until 1984. Several differences in algal and zooplankton community composition and dynamics were associated with the physical and chemical changes. The planktonic community structure of Peter Lake has been more variable than that of unlimed Paul Lake. -from Authors
