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).
