Effects of copper on algal communities at different current velocities

Abstract

This study examines the influence of current velocity in the toxiceffect of copper in diatom-dominated biofilms grown in artificial channels.Effects on community structure, algal biomass and photosynthesis (carbonincorporation) caused by 15 μg L−1 of copperwere tested at contrasting (1 and 15 cm s−1)velocities. Moreover, a possible threshold on the effect… (More)
