The Quimbo Dam was built over the Magdalena River in 2011 and started functioning in November 2015. In this research the composition of phytoplankton during its first stages of functioning was studied through qualitative-quantitative analysis as well as the relation among the most abundant species and the physicochemical parameters of pH, DO, water Temperature, and conductivity though correlation analysis. Quantitative results of microalgae were analyzed with diversity indexes of Shannon… Expand

Structure of the zooplanktonic community in a tropical dam (Betania, Colombia) with high environmental tension
The Betania Dam is a strategic ecosystem of the department of Huila in Colombia, whose goods and services include the generation of hydroelectric energy and the production of red tilapia (OreochromisExpand
Inserção de sedimentos na qualidade da água e a interferência na taxa fotossintética do fitoplâncton em açudes/barragens
Sedimentation is a high degree factor of impact on water quality, because it increases the turbidity, hinders the solar incidence, and consequently, interferes in negative ways on the primary production of phytoplankton community and the hydrogen potential normality. Expand

Structure of the phytoplanktonic community in a neotropical Dam with environmental tension
Phytoplankton studies in the Betania Dam (Huila, Colombia) are scarce, there are only three published articles about it, and only one focused on the structure of the community, published 30 yearsExpand
Dominant and co-existing species of Cyanobacteria from a Eutrophicated reservoir of Rio Grande do Norte State, Brazil
The conclusion drawn from the study period revealed that the reservoir with high inorganic nutrients had reduced transparency, anoxic hypolimnion, elevated levels of electrical conductivity and the dominance of cyanobacteria during the dry period and the dominate of chlorophyceae in the wet period.

Seasonal dynamics of cyanobacteria in a eutrophic reservoir (Arcoverde) in a semi-arid region of Brazil.
Physical variables better explain the alterations of species in the phytoplankton community in an environment dominated by cyanobacteria throughout the year as well as seasonal climatic factors associated to periods of stratification and de-stratification. Expand

Biological and chemical results indicate a clear tendency to eutrophy and to high organic matter content in these bodies of water. Expand
Vertical and temporal variation in phytoplankton assemblages correlated with environmental conditions in the Mundaú reservoir, semi-arid northeastern Brazil
The vertical changes in abundant taxa revealed distinct patterns regulated by the variation in the environmental factors that were directly linked to seasonality, with the success of one or more species being dependent on their life strategies and ecological needs. Expand
Vertical and temporal variation in phytoplankton assemblages correlated with environmental conditions in the Mundaú reservoir, semi-arid northeastern Brazil.
The present study restates the importance of environmental and seasonal factors for phytoplankton composition and distribution in a freshwater tropical reservoir through a vertical gradient. Expand
Ecological Determinants of Forest to the Abundance of Lutzomyia longiflocosa in Tello, Colombia
It is confirmed that there are favorable microhabitats in the forest with specific ecological determinants that define the aggregated distribution of the species and provide the conditions necessary for survival and abundance of L. longiflocosa. Expand
Removal of chromium in wastewater from tanneries applying bioremediation with algae, orange peels and citrus pectin
The dumping of tanneries is a severe pollution problem because it generated wastewater full of chemical and toxic substances which deteriorate the water sources and the health of organisms that areExpand
The effects of wet and dry seasons on concentrations of solutes and phytoplankton biomass in seven Ethiopian rift-valley lakes
There could be light limitation in some of the Ethiopian rift-valley lakes, and events associated with the wet and dry seasons could bring about contrasting changes in nutrient levels and phytoplankton biomass in lakes, depending on the physical characteristics of the lakes. Expand
Toxins of cyanobacteria.
Toxicity data on cyanotoxins are rather scarce, and a majority of toxicity data are known to be of microcystin-LR, while for nodularins, data from a few animal studies are available. Expand
