Detection of cyanobacterial sxt genes and paralytic shellfish toxins in freshwater lakes and brackish waters on Aland Islands, Finland
Abstract Harmful cyanobacteria are a globally growing concern. They produce a large variety of toxic compounds, including saxitoxin and its many structural variants, a group of potent neurotoxinsExpand
Phytoplankton communities in rock pools on the Åland Islands, SW Finland – environmental variables, functional groups and strategies
Studies of rock pools tend to focus on the surrounding emergent habitat. Moreover, research on phytoplankton in small, nutrient-rich water bodies is limited. Summer phytoplankton species, functionalExpand
Temperature Effects Explain Continental Scale Distribution of Cyanobacterial Toxins
Insight into how environmental change determines the production and distribution of cyanobacterial toxins is necessary for risk assessment. Management guidelines currently focus on hepatotoxinsExpand
A European Multi Lake Survey dataset of environmental variables, phytoplankton pigments and cyanotoxins
Under ongoing climate change and increasing anthropogenic activity, which continuously challenge ecosystem resilience, an in-depth understanding of ecological processes is urgently needed. Lakes, asExpand
Changes due to invasion of Myriophyllum sibiricum in a shallow lake in Åland, SW Finland
Lake Ostertrask, a shallow, 25 ha lake in Aland, SW Finland, was invaded by the common watermilfoil, Myriophyllum sibiricum Komarov 1914 (Magnoliophyta: Haloragaceae), in the 1990s. In summer 2006Expand
Elimination of cyanobacteria and microcystins in irrigation water—effects of hydrogen peroxide treatment
Cyanobacterial blooms pose a risk to wild and domestic animals as well as humans due to the toxins they may produce. Humans may be subjected to cyanobacterial toxins through many routes, e.g., byExpand
Phytoplankton dynamics in a shallow lake dominated by common water milfoil
Abstract Phytoplankton temporal fluctuation and vertical distribution were studied by seasonal and close interval siphon sampling (May-Sep) in a shallow lake dominated by common water milfoilExpand
Phytoplankton, physical and chemical microscale variations in three brackish rock pools
Variations at the microscale in phytoplankton distribution with respect to physical and chemical variables in three brackish rock pools of different depth, size and exposure were studied during theExpand
