Seasonal succession of functional traits in phytoplankton communities and their interaction with trophic state

Valerie Wentzky, Jörg Tittel, Christoph Jäger, Jorn Bruggeman & Karsten Rinke
1. Understanding and explaining the structure of communities in response to environmental gradients is a central goal in ecology. Trait-based approaches are promising but yet rarely applied to understand community dynamics in response to changing environmental conditions. 2. Here we investigate seasonal succession patterns of functional traits in phytoplankton communities and how nutrient reductions (oligotrophication) alter these patterns. We used phytoplankton data from 40 years of observation from the Rappbode Reservoir (Germany), which underwent a...
