Ecology and Limnology on Lake of Manacás – Juiz de Fora/MG, Brazil

Data: 10 de November de 2016

   This project aims to deepen limeno-ecological issues related to the phytoplankton community, considering the cyanobacteria its most abundant ecological representative.


   Specifically, the objectives will be:


   1. To evaluate the primary phytoplankton production rates of Lake Manacá;

   2. Determine its composition, temporal variation and possible fluctuations;

   3. Relate eco-physiological rates with taxa and phytoplankton size fractions;

   4. Interpret functional and structural biological parameters according to the energy scenario (light, temperature, physicochemical and nutrients).
