      Abstract. In the evaluation of the role of lake restoration programmes in situ measurements of the filtration rate of the freshwater mussel Dreissena polymorpha have been performed in Lake Wolderwijd, The Netherlands. The filtration rate mainly depends on the suspended matter content of the water, and shows an inverse exponential relationship with this by: This page was last edited on 25 November , at Files are available under licenses specified on their description page.
