Abstract:

The concepts and assumptions related to the landscape ecology, functioning of catchment basins, and eutrophication of lakes adopted in the presented studies are discussed. These studies concern: lake as a landscape component, importance of the patch pattern in the catchment, processes related to nutrient export, transformations and retention in lakes, specific problems of lake chains (river-lake systems), wetlands as lake-land ecotones responsible for nutrient removal, and other problems. Specific questions for the present studies (like long-term changes) and the study goals were indicated. General characteristics of the river-lake system under study (river Jorka on the Masurian Lakeland, north-eastern Poland), climatic conditions in the study periods, and the scope of the studies are shortly presented with reference to the particular papers in the volume.
