  15. 15. Changing scenarios:
  16. 16. In temperate lakes:• Wind action is important in determining mixing depth.• Epilimnion can undergo periods of heating during hot and calm weather and periods of strong mixing by wind.
  17. 17. Vertical mixing can lead to a shortage of light ifplanktonic organisms are frequently mixed down tothe bottom, whereas stratification enhances lightsupply by decreasing mixing depth. Depth
  18. 18. Interannual variability in wind speed may produce changes in thesummer thermocline depth and consequently in the epilimneticmean irradiance 1998-99 2003-04 t d.f.

However, the sharp decrease in Ophrydium PE may result also from the incidence of UVR. Modenutti et al 2008. Limnology and Oceanoraphy 53: 446-455
  20. 20. UVR and Bacteria Morphology• The solar radiation and particularly ultraviolet radiation (UVR) have strong effects on the production, activity, and abundance of bacterioplankton (Helbling et al. 1995; Sommaruga et al. 1997;Tranvik and Bertilsson 2001).• However, up to now few studies have shown evidence of the effects of UVR on bacterial community composition and morphological distribution.

  25. 25. Epilimnetic levels of UVR induce filamentation and that this response is not a feature of aparticular cluster. However, β-Proteobacteria exhibited a high relative importance in filamentformation while Actinobacteria were almost absent among filaments. Modenutti et al 2010. Photochemistry and Photobiology 86: 871–881
  26. 26. Consequences in the C transfer within the microbial loop •The biovolume of bacteria that became inedible (cells > 7 μm) increase significantly in the epilimnion. •In the epilimnion nanoflagellates and ciliates encounter prey assemblage composed by a large extent of inedible cells. Thus, bacterivory would be reduced with a consequent decrease in epilimnetic trophic energy transfer.

  33. 33. Conclusions•Climate change (warming, wind, precipitations)caused changes in lake light supply.•Microbial food web was observe to be verysensitive to changes in light supply.•These changes may occur in scenarios wereanthropogenic deposition of nitrogen orincrease in phosphorus by dust was notrecorded.•This situation is of particular importance forlacustrine food webs.
