Lakes in the Scharmutzelsee-region (East-Brandenburg, Germany) were found to be dominated either by Limnothrix redekei or Planktothrix agardhii. These dominance regimes were stable over the whole investigation period from 1993 to 1995. Six lakes (maximum depth between 2 and 12 m) were compared in regard to physical and chemical conditions to find reasons for the superiority of the first or the second species. All investigated lakes are polymictic but show, nevertheless differences in their… Expand
A comparison of epilimnetic versus metalimnetic phytoplankton assemblages in two mesotrophic lakes
TLDR
The epilimnetic and metalimnetic phytoplankton assemblages were compared in two mesotrophic lakes and a “metalimnetic niche” is described and a cluster analysis of the taxonomic patterns indicated large dissimilarities between the lakes. Expand
Collapse of a Planktothrix agardhii perennial bloom and microcystin dynamics in response to reduced phosphate concentrations in a temperate lake.
TLDR
The highest toxin content was observed when P. agardhii biomass was the lowest, which suggests changes in the proportion of microcystin-producing and -nonproducing subpopulations and/or the physiological status of cells. Expand
Seasonal succession of cyanoprokaryotes in a hypereutrophic oligo-mesohaline lagoon from the South of France
The Bolmon lagoon (South of France) is an oligo-mesohaline coastal lagoon that has undergone intense eutrophication in the past decades, resulting from a strong concentration of human activities inExpand
Temporal variation in microcystin production by Planktothrix agardhii (Gomont) Anagnostidis and Komarek (Cyanobacteria, Oscillatoriales) in a temperate lake
TLDR
This study showed that P. agardhii biomass and filament morphology may be useful characteristics for the identification of threats associated with cyanotoxins, and found that environmental factors, such as water temperature, phosphate level, ammonium nitrogen and transparency, were the most related to microcystin production.

Cyanobacteria associations in shallow polytrophic lakes: influence of environmental factors
TLDR
A 2 year field study in two shallow, polytrophic lakes in Brandenburg revealed the importance of environmental factors in controlling the population dynamics of various cyanobacterial species which do not form layers or aggregations. Expand
Vertical distribution of cyanobacteria biomass and cyanotoxin production in the polymictic Siemianówka Dam Reservoir (eastern Poland)
Abstract The summer-autumn dominance of the toxic cyanobacterium Planktothrix agardhii was described in the lowland polymictic Siemianowka Dam Reservoir (SDR) in 2010 and 2011. The study wasExpand
Basic limnological characteristics of the shallow eutrophic lake Grimnitzsee (Brandenburg, Germany)
Abstract The medium shallow lake Grimnitzsee (maximum depth: 9.9 m; mean depth: 4.6 m; area: 7.7 · 10 6 m 2 ) which is situated in the biosphere reserve “Schorfheide-Chorin” in northern BrandenburgExpand
Success of chrysophytes, cryptophytes and dinoflagellates over blue-greens (cyanobacteria) during an extreme winter (1995/96) in eutrophic shallow lakes
Phytoplankton succession in three shallow eutrophic and hypertrophic lakes located in the Scharmützelseeregion (East Brandenburg, Germany) is described for the extreme winter of 1995/96 before andExpand
Equilibrium phase conditions in shallow German lakes: How Cyanoprokaryota species establish a steady state phase in late summer

Phytoplankton-community structure, succession and chlorophyll content in Lake Müggelsee from 1979 to 1990
TLDR
It is suggested that the observed decrease in Chl a per unit biovolume is associated with species size rather than the time of development depending on the unknown portion of inactive algal cells resuspended from the sediment surface. Expand
Why ‘very shallow’ lakes are more successful opposing reduced nutrient loads
TLDR
It is found that ‘very shallow’ lakes in the region are more efficient in converting the available phosphorus into phytoplankton biomass because of the constant and sufficient underwater light climate due to the favourable relation of zeu and Zmix. Expand
Inhibition of Daphnia by Oscillatoria in Lake Washington
TLDR
The hypothesis that Oscillatoria may have delayed the appearance of Daphnia in the lake for 10 years after the crash in the mid- 1960s of its main predator, Neomysis mercedis, was hypothesized. Expand

TLDR
A comparison of laboratory growth rates indicated that O. agardhii grew faster than O. redekei only at temperatures greater than 11°C when irradiances were greater than 100 µE m-2s-1, in broad agreement with the succession of the two species in Lough Neagh. Expand
