In lakes, POM is mainly derived from phytoplankton and the detritus originating from the decay of macrophytes (Boers and Boon, 1988).
The call for proposals includes the quantitative method for the determination of the phytoplankton samples (total of 249) in 2017 and 2018 related to the monitoring of the status of lakes and the storage of data in the environmental phytoplankton register.
