Short summary
Across North America and Europe, goose populations have increased exponentially in response to agricultural intensification. By using an experimental approach, we empirically demonstrated that geese act as bio-vectors, making terrestrial nutrients more bioavailable to freshwater systems. The study revealed that the nutrient loading from goose faeces has the potential to change phytoplankton community composition, with a shift toward an increased presence of cyanobacteria.
