The role of water-level fluctuations in shallow lake ecosystems - workshop conclusions
Coops, H; Beklioğlu, Meryem; Crisman, TL (2003-11-15)
Discussion and conclusions are presented from a workshop held at Balatonfured, Hungary in May 2002 on the role of water-level fluctuations on the structure and function of shallow lakes. Water-level regime is regarded to be an important factor for lake ecosystem functioning and affects conservation values. Biota, in particular those living in vegetated areas, respond differentially to changes in hydroperiod dynamics. Extreme water levels may cause shifts between the turbid and the clear, macrophyte-dominate...
The response of periphyton and submerged macrophytes to nitrogen and phosphorus loading in shallow warm lakes: a mesocosm experiment
Özkan, Korhan; Johansson, Liselotte S.; Beklioğlu, Meryem (2010-02-01)
1. Recent experimental and field studies on temperate shallow lakes indicate that nitrogen may play a greater role in their functioning than previously thought. Several studies document that abundance and richness of submerged macrophytes, both central in shallow lake ecology, may decrease with increasing nitrogen loading, especially at high phosphorus levels. However, the role of nitrogen in warm lakes with fluctuating water regimes remains to be described in detail.
The effect of reed beds on wave attenuation and suspended sediment concentration

The effect of emergent and submerged vegetation on uniform and oscillatory flow conditions has been intensively studied by researchers in the last two decades. It has been determined that vegetation affects wave characteristics and cause wave attenuation especially in shallow waters where wave orbitals are in interaction with vegetation. Consequently they affect sediment deposition and resuspension acting as a sink. The aim of this study is to determine wave attenuation due to vegetation, and to identify th...

The Impact of Large Investors on the Portfolio Optimization of Single-Family Houses in Housing Markets
Yılmaz, Bilgi; Korn, Ralf; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe (2022-02-01)
As a consequence of the real estate market crash after 2008, large investors invested a significant amount of wealth into single-family houses to construct a portfolio of rental dwellings, whose income is securitized in the capital. In some local housing markets, these investors own remarkable numbers of single-family houses. Furthermore, their trading activities have resulted in a new investment strategy, which exacerbates property wealth concentration and polarization. This new investment strategy and its...
