Blooms of Ceratium hirundinella (O. F. Miiller) Bergh, have been detected in different water bodies in the Neotropical Region since 1990. The colonization began in southern lakes, and during the last decade the dinoflagellate arrived and bloomed in subtropical reservoirs. In this context the colonization of C. hirundinella and its population development have been analyzed from its first record in the Rio Tercero Reservoir (February 1999 to February 2001). Phytoplankton and physicochemical… Expand

Towards a comprehension of Ceratium (Dinophyceae) invasion in Brazilian freshwaters: autecology of C. furcoides in subtropical reservoirs
TLDR
Ceratiumfurcoides’ abundance and morphological variation during its initial phase of colonization in two subtropical reservoirs in southern Brazil was investigated to explore which environmental factors were related to the occurrence, persistence and bloom formation of this dinoflagellate in those environments. Expand
Invasion of the dinoflagellate Ceratium furcoides (Levander) Langhans 1925 at tropical reservoir and its relation to environmental variables
TLDR
The presence of Ceratium furcoides in the Furnas Reservoir apparently has not yet affected the reservoir water quality or other plankton communities, but if it becomes fully established it could perhaps become a problem in the reservoir or even to spread out to other reservoirs in Rio Grande basin. Expand
Expansion of invasive Ceratium furcoides (Dinophyta) toward north-central Brazil: new records in tropical environments
TLDR
Physical and chemical variables of these waterbodies, compared to other environments where this species was found, demonstrate that C. furcoides is a highly eurytopic species, and an analysis based on the areas of occurrence and the chronology of the records demonstrated that the species has spread toward northern Brazil. Expand
First record of Ceratium furcoides (Dinophyta), an invasive species, in a temporary high-altitude lake in the Iron Quadrangle (MG, Southeast Brazil).
TLDR
The presence of Ceratium furcoides, an invasive species, in a shallow, natural intermittent pool formed at a high-altitude at the southern end of the Iron Quadrangle, an iron-mining district of Minas Gerais State (Southeast Brazil) is recorded for the first time. Expand
First record of Ceratium furcoides (Dinophyta), an invasive species, in a temporary high-altitude lake in the Iron Quadrangle (MG, Southeast Brazil)
Dinoflagellates of the genus Ceratium are generally marine organisms, but rare occurrences in freshwater have been observed in Brazil. In this paper we are recording for the first time the presenceExpand
Potential distribution of the invasive freshwater dinoflagellate Ceratium furcoides (Levander) Langhans (Dinophyta) in South America
TLDR
A distribution model for the invasive dinoflagellate C. furcoides in South America is created in order to further investigate the basins at potential risk, as well as the environmental conditions that influence its expansion. Expand
Biotic and Abiotic Factors Affecting the Population Dynamics of Ceratium hirundinella, Peridinium cinctum, and Peridiniopsis elpatiewskyi
TLDR
The findings proved that C. hirundinella was one of the dominant autumn planktons in the highest biovolume in the Zayandeh Rud Reservoir, and it was found that Ceratium density was positively correlated with sulfate ion concentrations, while the growth of P. cinctum and P. elpatiewskyi were associated with NO2− and Mn. Expand
Phytoplankton species interactions and invasion by Ceratium furcoides are influenced by extreme drought and water-hyacinth removal in a shallow tropical reservoir
This study explored the interactions of phytoplankton species during the invasion of Ceratium furcoides and the environmental variables that contributed to its establishment and ecological success inExpand
First record of a bloom of the invasive species Ceratium furcoides (Levander) Langhans 1925 in Rio Grande do Sul state, Brazil.
TLDR
Species of this genus are able to develop blooms due to their mobility and resistance to sedimentation, to the occupation of the surface layer and optimised use of resources such as light and nutrients. Expand
Recent blooms of the dinoflagellate Ceratium in Albert Falls Dam (KZN): history, causes, spatial features and impacts on a reservoir ecosystem and its zooplankton

Production and Vertical Migration of Ceratium hirundinella in Relation to Phosphorus Availability in Eau Galle Reservoir, Wisconsin
TLDR
Seasonal production of Ceratium hirundinella and its diel migratory patterns were examined in relation to phosphorus (P) availability in eutrophic Eau Galle Reservoir, Wisconsin, suggesting P limitation of ceratium production. Expand
Ceratium in Lake Erken: vertical distribution, migration and form variation

The cysts ofCeratium hirundinella: Their dynamics and role within a eutrophic (Lake Sempach, Switzerland)
TLDR
The dynamics of the Ceratium hirundinella population and the abundance of dinocysts in the plankton and sediments were studied in Lake Sempach in 1988 and the rate of survival of theCeratium cysts appears to be lower than that of Peridinium Cysts, which have an impact on the ecosystem as carriers of nutrients. Expand
Winter dominance of Ceratiumhirundinella in a southernnorth-temperate reservoir
TLDR
It is concluded that the light and temperature conditions would allow C. hirundinella to grow throughout the year in this reservoir, but the occurrence of this potential growth is probably regulated by ecological factors, such as the presence of hypolimnetic anoxic conditions and the hydraulic regime of the reservoir.

Distribution pattern of the dinoflagellateCeratium hirundinella (O. F. Müller) Bergh in a reservoir
TLDR
It was found that C. hirundinella initiated growth at the head of the reservoir, and later gradually expanded downstream, and during the period of increase in water temperature that the cell density was found to have exponentially increased. Expand
Population dynamics of the freshwater dinoflagellate Ceratium hirundinella in the largest shallow lake of Central Europe, lake Balaton, Hungary
TLDR
C. hirundinella seemed to be, at least in those parts of the lake above the level of fertility considered oligotrophic, insensitive to changes in trophic conditions; only its relative contribution to total biomass decreased with increased enrichment. Expand
Temporal occurrence of Ceratium hirundinella in Spanish reservoirs
Ceratium hirundinella has traditionally been characterised as a species that thrives in warm waters and in stratified conditions. In our study, however, we found that the temporal occurrence of C.Expand
