Lesson 5. Phytoplankton phenology in deep clear lakes
Phytoplankton are at the base of aquatic food webs, so their biomass is coupled to all upper trophic levels. However, phytoplankton biomass is sensitive to environmental change, with shifts in the seasonality of blooms (phenology). This lesson covers how satellite data allow phytoplankton phenology investigations for Lake Constance.";
Suitable for university students or continued professional development training (intermediate level).
