Glindower See (Germany, Brandenburg) is a eutrophic lake located near the city of Potsdam. It is connected to the Havel river system. About 74 % of its small catchment area are utilized for either agricultural or artificial land use, which results in summer TP concentrations of about 0.1 mg/L. The shore is predominantly altered by residential development, while some parts of the southern shore still represent near natural conditions.
It has been investigated in several previous projects (see e.g. Brauns, M., Garcia, X.-F., Walz, N &. Pusch, M. (2007): Effects of human shoreline development on littoral macroinvertebrates in lowland lakes.- J. Appl. Ecol. 44: 1138-1144; Brauns, M., Garcia, X.-F., Pusch, M. & Walz, N. (2007): Eulittoral macroinvertebrate communities of lowland lakes: discrimination among trophic states.- Freshwater Biol. 52: 1022-1032). Within WISER all four Biological Quality Elements will be sampled.
