Abstract

Different sources of particulate organic matter (POM) as well as its composition affect the biological food web and hence the self-purification potential and water quality of rivers. We studied the effect of a large shallow lake on the POM pool of the water passing through it. Over four years, we analysed monthly the amount and composition of POM and a set of environmental variables in the inflows and in the outflow of Lake Võrtsjärv (Estonia). In the inflows, the live pool of POM consisted of phytoplankton – small crypto-, dino-, and chlorophytes. The concentration of chlorophyll a (Chl a), as a proxy of phytoplankton biomass, was positively correlated with temperature and total phosphorus and negatively with dissolved silica, total nitrogen, and discharge. In the outflow, the share of the live component of POM was much larger than in the inflows but was also dominated by phytoplankton represented by grazing resistant filamentous cyanobacteria. Chl a was positively correlated with total phosphorus, temperature, pH, and precipitation, and negatively with dissolved silica, total nitrogen, and discharge in the outflow. The different amounts, composition, and seasonal dynamics of POM in the inflows and in the outflow have potentially substantial impacts on the food web with a predominating classical pathway in the inflows versus a detrital pathway in the outflow.

Keywords

particulate organic matter, rivers, lakes, algal species, food web.
