Diversity of Microcystis across trophic gradients

  title={Diversity of Microcystis across trophic gradients},
  author={D. Dr.ThomasB.BridgemanPh. and Justin D Chaffin},
Abstract The Microcystis bloom during 2011 was very intense covering the majority of the western basin in August and reached the central basin in October. Molecular fingerprinting revealed that the Microcystis blooms that occurred in the central basin during October and the western basin in July and August were very similar. This indicates that Lake Erie Microcystis blooms are actually one bloom, rather than separated blooms. The bloom that develops near Maumee Bay spreads eastward. Further… CONTINUE READING
