In this article, a systematic error in converting phytoplankton biovolume to carbon biomass resulted in 2.5-fold over-estimates of phytoplankton biomass (BP) for all data presented in the paper. These errors do not affect any of the conclusions; however, they do result in BP data being incorrectly scaled in five figures, which are presented below in their corrected form. The only notable change is that in Fig. 7, where the two study lakes are presented in comparison with their Florida and European counterparts, the datum for Lago Trasimeno now groups tightly with other European lakes having a similar BP and zooplankton biomass (BZ). Lake Apopka remains an extreme outlier in regard to a much lower BZ than expected based on BP.
