Cyanobacterial dominance in eutrophic lakes causes water quality problems due to the production of toxins harmful to humans and animals, as well as a number of odorous compounds. Cylindrospermopsin (CYN) is a potent cytotoxic cyanobacterial metabolite involved in triggering illness in humans. The occurrence of CYN has been mostly associated with tropical and subtropical cyanobacteria. We analyzed CYN concentration and phytoplankton assemblages of three lakes located in western Poland during the… CONTINUE READING
