Detection and quantification of microcystins from cyanobacteria strains isolated from reservoirs and ponds in Morocco
In Morocco, the occurrence of toxic cyanobacteria blooms is confirmed in some water bodies used for recreational and/or as drinking water reservoirs. According to WHO recommendations, theExpand

Allelopatic effects of cyanobacteria extracts containing microcystins on Medicago sativa-Rhizobia symbiosis.
The eutrophication of water leads to massive blooms of cyanobacteria potentially producers of highly toxic substances: cyanotoxins, especially microcystins (MC). The contamination of water used forExpand

Phytotoxic effects of a natural bloom extract containing microcystins on Lycopersicon esculentum.
The cyanobacterial toxins microcystins (MC) are known to affect many processes in plants. Their presence in the water used for irrigation may have considerable impact on the survivorship, growth andExpand
