Abstract

Lobo/Broa reservoir research was established in 1971 as a model of limnological and ecological research in aquatic ecosystems in Brazil. The present paper describes the ecological dynamics of the reservoir, the climatological and hydrological interactions, limnological factors and the responses of the aquatic biota to the forcing functions mainly of precipitation and wind. It also emphasises management issues and technologies, and processes developed to control eutrophication. Ecosystem services are described.
