Relationships between shifts in climatic and other environmental conditions and changes in the character and dynamics of phytoplankton blooms were examined in three interconnected subtropical lagoons on the east coast of Florida, i.e., Mosquito Lagoon, Indian River Lagoon, and Banana River Lagoon, from 1997 to 2013. Phytoplankton blooms were a common feature through most of the study period in two of the lagoons. From 1997 to 2009, blooms in the latter two lagoons were typically dominated by… 
Cyclical Patterns and a Regime Shift in the Character of Phytoplankton Blooms in a Restricted Sub-Tropical Lagoon, Indian River Lagoon, Florida, United States
This paper examines the character of phytoplankton blooms in a restricted sub-tropical lagoon along the Atlantic coast of central Florida. The results of the 23-year study (1997–2020) provide
Phytoplankton dynamics in a subtropical tidal creek: influences of rainfall and water residence time on composition and biomass
Concerns about global climate change have heightened awareness of the role changing rainfall regimes play in altering plankton communities of coastal ecosystems. In this study spatial and temporal
Mesozooplankton Community Dynamics and Grazing Potential Across Algal Bloom Cycles in a Subtropical Estuary
Mesozooplankton, as abundant grazers of microalgae in coastal systems, have the potential to prevent or mitigate harmful algal blooms (HABs) and their effects. The Indian River Lagoon (IRL) is a
Diversity and distribution of seagrasses as related to salinity, temperature, and availability of light in the Indian River Lagoon, Florida
Seven species of seagrass have been found in the Indian River Lagoon (IRL), making it an unusually diverse location at the global scale. From 1994 to 2019, the lagoon-wide distribution of these
Spatiotemporal Patterns in the Biomass of Drift Macroalgae in the Indian River Lagoon, Florida, United States
Drift macroalgae plays key roles in the ecology of many coastal systems, including the Indian River Lagoon. In the lagoon, changes in the biomass of drift macroalgae may have interacted with an

Spatial and temporal patterns of phytoplankton composition in subtropical coastal lagoon, the Indian River Lagoon, Florida, USA
TLDR
Mean phytoplankton standing crops were highest in the most flow-restricted regions of the lagoon, which had the lowest mean salinity values and comparatively high total nitrogen:total phosphorus ratios.
The decline and recovery of a persistent Texas brown tide algal bloom in the Laguna Madre (Texas, USA)
TLDR
The rapid recovery of the A. lagunensis bloom suggests that this alga may be a more resilient component of the Laguna Madre flora than previously suspected.

Disruption of grazer populations as a contributing factor to the initiation of the Texas brown tide algal bloom
TLDR
The role of phytoplankton grazers in the population dynamics of these blooms is not well understood, but it seems likely that declines in grazer populations may contribute to the initiation of some harmful algal blooms and that grazers and pathogens may play a role in terminating blooms.
Seagrass responses to long-term light reduction by brown tide in upper Laguna Madre, Texas: distribution and biomass patterns
TLDR
Support of a hminishing number of new shoots by reclamation of nutrients and stored reserves from senescing shoots and rhizomes may allow H. wrightii to persist under conditions of insufficient light for periods greatly in excess of the life span of any one shoot, which would account for the pattern of diminishing biomass over time where the seagrass persists in deeper areas.
Phytoplankton spring blooms in the southern Baltic Sea—spatio-temporal development and long-term trends
TLDR
The seasonal and long-term development of the phytoplankton spring bloom in different regions of the southern Baltic Sea was investigated on the basis of monitoring data, finding the increase in chlorophyll a in the Bornholm and the southern Gotland Seas is related to eutrophication, whereas the decrease in diatoms in favour of the dinoflagellates isrelated to mild winters.

TLDR
Bacterial productivity was enhanced during and just after the bloom and bacterial abundance was four times higher at the bloom versus nonbloom site and organic C compounds were taken up later during and after the Bloom.
