"Water transparency is identified as a key parameter which is important far beyond how we see it in limnology. It is the only parameter that the public can use by human perception for assessing the water quality or the progress of a lake restoration. In turn, a good status of water transparency close to ecosystem reference conditions attracts publi...

In Europe, the effects of global warming are expected to be particularly acute in areas exposed to a more extreme continental climate. The climate change scenarios summarized in Chapter 2, this volume, suggest that the average summer temperatures in some areas of Central Europe could increase by as much as 6°C by 2071–2100. The associated projectio...

Introduction Aquatic macrophyte communities play a key role in aquatic ecosystems, structuring the water column, stabilising the substrate, providing microhabitats for other aquatic biota and contributing to the oxygen and carbon budget of the water body (Haslam 1978, Janauer & Dokulil 2006). They change in a more dynamic way than terrestrial veget...

Mitterwasser (Danube floodplain lake, Austria) can be considered as a hydrologically stable stream as it is protected from natural flooding by damming. Local hydraulic factors such as water velocity, substrate type and depth are likely to primarily determine the establishment of macrophyte assemblages in streams with low disturbance frequencies. En...
