Eutrophication of the East African Great Lakes
ForfatterMsomphora, Mbachi Ruth
Several of the African Great Lakes are distinctive for their very long water residence time >100 years. Incoming nutrients will be retained within the lakes and recovery will be slow even if inputs are reduced. While changes in chemistry and plankton composition of Lake Malawi have not been extreme to date, strong eutrophication is already happening in Lake Victoria, where damage has reduced its biological wealth and human misery may follow (Baskin, 1992). It could be advisable to prevent this happening to Lake Malawi and Tanganyika.
This is chapter 21 of the book "Drainage basin nutrient inputs and eutrophication: an integrated approach."
