Preface: Lake restoration: an experimental ecosystem approach for eutrophication control

This special section of Hydrobiologia includes a series of papers that document the ecological effects of an intensive programme of management designed to combat eutrophication of a small, monomictic lake with a long history of cyanobacteria blooms (Walsby & McAllister, 1987) and bottom-water anoxia (McColl, 1972). In more than four decades of research on, and management of, lake eutrophication across the globe (e.g., Jeppesen et al., 2005; Davis & Kloop 2006; Smith & Schindler, 2009) and despite pressures from lake acidification, bio-invasions and climate change (Smol, 2008), the effect of human activities acting at a catchment scale remains arguably the most persistent threat to the sustainability and biodiversity of natural lake ecosystems. The potential for these stressors to act in a synergistic way, for example, through increased catchment nutrient loads and climate change exacerbating eutrophication (Trolle et al., 2010), necessitates continued emphasis and vigilance on...
