Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii, a potentially toxic blooming cyanobacterium (blue-green alga), responsible for public health problems in Australia, was identified in France in 1994 in a shallow pond south of Paris. A program monitoring the occurrence of C. raciborskii in this pond was conducted from July 1998 to October 1999. The phytoplankton assemblages were studied, and limnological parameters (water temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH, conductivity, and dissolved inorganic nutrients) were… CONTINUE READING
