Use of flow management to mitigate cyanobacterial blooms in the Lower Darling River, Australia
TLDR
Flow releases were effective at mitigating cyanobacterial growth through either the suppression of persistent thermal stratification or through dilution and translocation of cells, which diminished the growth of cyanobacteria through reduced light availability under the mixed conditions.
Critical flow velocities for the growth and dominance of Anabaena circinalis in some turbid freshwater rivers.
TLDR
The growth and dominance of Anabaena circinalis at these sites was closely related to the establishment and maintenance of persistent and strong thermal stratification, and these values may have potential to be applied to other rivers in similar climatic zones to suppress nuisance cyanobacterial growth.
Persistence of yessotoxin under light and dark conditions.
Tropical cyanobacterial blooms: a review of prevalence, problem taxa, toxins and influencing environmental factors
TLDR
It is illustrated that some cyanobacteria and toxins are more prevalent in tropical areas, while some tropical countries have considerable information regarding toxic blooms, others have few or no reported studies.
Amnesic shellfish poisoning toxins in bivalve molluscs in Ireland.
Development of blooms of Cyclotella meneghiniana and Nitzschia spp. (Bacillariophyceae) in a shallow river and estimation of effective suppression flows
TLDR
Simulation modelling showed that flow regulation and water extraction have decreased flows in the Hunter River during summer, and consequently have probably increased the number of diatom blooms.
Vertical disentrainment of Anabaena circinalis in the turbid, freshwater Darling River, Australia : quantifying potential benefits from buoyancy
The migration patterns of phytoplankton through time and depth were measured in the Darling River at Trevallyn, New South Wales, Australia during a bloom of Anabaena circinalis. Anabaena circinalis
