Abstract

Microstratification of phytoplankton in the large shallow Lake Balaton (Hungary) was studied during a 24 h period. Dissolved 0 2 showed biological stratification; flagellates exhibited a definite circadian rhythm. In the middle of the investigation a heavy storm broke out which was followed by the disappearance of differences between different layers of water. Storm-induced destratification is described by cluster-analysis. Abundances of dominant species changed differently in connection with the storm. Numbers of Nitzschia sp. increased due to stirring up from the sediment surface. Numbers of single-celled or colony-forming species (Cyclotella comta, Crucigenia quadrata, Coelosphaerium kuetzingianum) practically did not change. Numbers of all the three dominant filamentous species (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae f. klebahnii, Lyngbya limnetica, Planctonema lauterbornii) significantly decreased, which might be attributed to an unknown loss process and was followed by a competitive displacement by algae of small cell size.
