Description

Book chapter from "The Structuring Role of Submerged Macrophytes in Lakes", eds. Erik Jepsen, Martin Søndergaard, Morten Søndergaard, and Kirsten Christoffersen.

About this chapter:

Experimental manipulations of whole ecosystems can be a powerful test of ecological understanding. In particular, ecosystem-scale manipulations can evaluate basic ecological ideas in ways that complement comparative studies, models, and smaller-scale experiments (Carpenter et al., 1995a). From an applied perspective, ecosystem experiments can also give unique insights into what works at a scale directly relevant to managers (Kitchell, 1992). When management actions are coupled with scientific studies of the response of the ecosystem, learning may lead to improved management practices (Gunderson et al., 1995). Here we present early results of an experiment to test the idea that nuisance macrophytes can be managed to enhance fish growth.
