In this project the food web of lakes Ijssel- and Markermeer are subject of study. Changes in the food web have led to a dramatic decline of many of the bird populations, especially piscivorous and benthivorous birds. In the project the hypothesis that strong re-oligotrophication has deteriorated the phytoplankton base of the food web (not only food quantity, also food quality, ie.rising C:P) is tested.
