Formation of Energy Fluxes in Small Reservoirs

The influence of natural and anthropogenic factors on the formation of energy fluxes in small reservoirs differing in their trophic level was investigated. It has been found that the functioning of the ecosystems of deep reservoirs is of heterotrophic type. The autotrophic type of their functioning is observed in shallow water bodies, which is conditioned by intensive heating of their water column, and also by the peculiarities of their optical depth - these water bodies are totally euphotic. It has been found that for a long period of time phytoplankton primary production of small reservoirs remained almost unchanged, which is indicative of a stable functioning of their ecosystems. Phytoplankton structure transformations are responsible for this process.
