In many regions across the globe, extreme weather events such as storms haveincreased in frequency, intensity, and duration due to climate change. Ecologicaltheory predicts that such extreme events should have large impacts on ecosystemstructure and function. High winds and precipitation associated with storms can affectlakes via short-term runoff events from watersheds and physical mixing of thewater column. In addition, lakes connected to rivers and streams will also experienceflushing due to high flow rates. Although we have a well-developed understanding ofhow wind and precipitation events can alter lake physical processes and some aspectsof biogeochemical cycling, our mechanistic understanding of the emergent responsesof phytoplankton communities is poor. Here we provide a comprehensive synthesisthat identifies how storms interact with lake and watershed attributes and their antecedentconditions to generate changes in lake physical and chemical environments.Such changes can restructure phytoplankton communities and their dynamics, as wellas result in altered ecological function (e.g., carbon, nutrient and energy cycling) inthe short- and long-term. We summarize the current understanding of storm-inducedphytoplankton dynamics, identify knowledge gaps with a systematic review of theliterature, and suggest future research directions across a gradient of lake types andenvironmental conditions.
