We studied three shallow lakes, which differ in their regime: el Triunfo, a clear vegetated shallow lake with abundant submerged vegetation (mainly Ceratophyllum demersum) and low phytoplankton abundances (35[degrees]51S, 57[degrees]52'W); El Burro, a turbid shallow lake with high abundances of phytoplankton (35[degrees]42'S, 57[degrees]55'W) and Yalca, an inorganic turbid shallow lake with high amounts of suspended solids (35[degrees]35'S, 57[degrees]55'W).
In El Burro and Yalca, bacterioperiphyton samples were taken at 3 (t1), 10 (t2) and 20 days (t3), whereas in El Triunfo, samples were taken at 3 (t1), 7 (t2), 10 (t3) and 17 days (t4).
6%), intermediate values were observed in Yalca (average 47.
6% respectively), whereas Yalca showed the lowest values (65.
On average, the second largest group was Betaproteobacteria in El Triunfo and Yalca (hybridization percentage 22.
In Yalca, Alphaproteobacteria showed an increase in their abundances with time (RM ANOVA factor: time P < 0.
In Yalca, the lower values of DIN, conductivity and turbidity in comparison with those reported in previous studies (Allende et al.
Samples 1-4: El Triunfo (samples taken at t0, t1, t2 and t3 respectively); samples 5-8: El Burro (samples taken at t0, t1, t2 and t3 respectively); samples 9-12: Yalca (samples taken at t0, t1, t2 and t3 respectively).
Samples 1-4: El Triunfo (samples taken at t1, t2, t3 and t4 respectively); samples 5-7: El Burro (samples taken at t1, t2 and t3 respectively); samples 8-10: Yalca (samples taken at t1, t2 and t3 respectively).
What strikes me most about this masterful verse is the reflexive and meandering way in which the yalca relates his dream experience.
