Cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) commonly occur in the phytoplankton of lakes and reservoirs and sometimes develop as blooms which can cause deoxygenation, toxin production and nuisance odours1. The factors which govern the occurrence and seasonal development of such blooms in surface waters are imprecisely understood and little is known about the origins of the bloom-forming populations within particular water bodies (see, however, refs 2,3). Using 15N as tracer, we show here that the… CONTINUE READING
