Organisms living in aquatic ecosystems such as shallow lakes are generally affected by multiple anthropogenic stressors such as pesticides and nitrate input from agricultural runoff or increase in temperature due to global warming. While organisms are affected directly by the stressors, they are also affected indirectly through biotic interactions. I will present the results of a series of experiments designed to understand the direct and indirect impacts of multiple stressors on shallow aquatic ecosystems.
