Temporal variations in carbon isotope ratio of phytoplankton in a eutrophic lake.
However, we cannot associate directly such changes with the eutrophic conditions of the reservoir, because we have no available reference area to compare.
According to the Household Budget Survey (HBS 2008-2009 (15)), 48.1% of women in the age group 20 years (or older) are eutrophic; however, our study recorded 84.2% prevalence of eutrophic women (same age group) in the herein evaluated population.
Laboratory tests had no differences regarding renal function between the eutrophic and excess weight groups (creatinine=0.67 [+ or -]0.11 vs 0.70 [+ or -]0.16 mg/dL, P=0.53; GFR= 102 [+ or -] 12 vs 100 [+ or -] 20 mL x [min.sup.-1]/1.73[m.sup.2]), and the levels of HDL cholesterol were lower among excess weight adolescents (45 [+ or -] 9.3 vs 35 [+ or -] 9 mg/L P=0.002).
Those with self-reported chronic diseases (diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, cancer, kidney and heart issues, and stroke) showed chances for being overweight and obesity increased by almost two-fold compared to eutrophic individuals (Table 2).
Although no association was found between the practice of sports and HBP in young people, the present study showed a similar prevalence of HBP among young people sports practitioners who were overweight and obese compared to their eutrophic counterparts.
First, the inclusion criteria were: (a) no contraindication to the tests; (b) not to use any medication that would interfere with the results of the research; (c) classification of nutritional status as eutrophic; (d) weekly exercise volume less than 150 min*[wk.sup.-1] (<150 min*[wk.sup.-1]) for inclusion in the Sedentary Group; (e) weekly exercise volume equal to or greater than 300 min*[wk.sup.-1] ([greater than or equal to]300 min*[wk.sup.-1]) for inclusion in the Active Group; and (f) engaged in scheduled practice of physical exercise for a period of one year or more for the adolescents in the Active Group.
"In most mesotrophic and eutrophic lakes, we almost never see enough dissolved oxygen to sustain bluegills, crappies, or perch below the thermocline," says Mike Mclnerny, research scientist with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, who's made a career of studying panfish behavior.
In this study, the trophic status index ranged from mesotrophic to eutrophic during all the period analysed, Taperoa II and Soledade reservoirs showed mesotrophic status during the rainy period and eutrophic status during the dry period while Panati pond was classified as eutrophic (Table 1).
In eutrophic lakes, phytoplankton is dominated by cyanobacteria, which is grazing-resistant species, and the growth of zooplankton is limited (Carney and Elser, 1990; Elser and Goldman, 1991).
Chl-a concentrations at most stations were categorized as oligotrophic status except those at stations 8, 9, and 10 (mesotrophic status) and station 1 (eutrophic status) in the present study (Table 2).
