Chemical, chemical-physical and biological procedures were employed to carry out a hydrobiological study of a reservoir in the central Apennines (Italy), designed for the supply of drinking and irrigation water, and tourist recreation facilities. Potentiometric, volumetric, spectrophotometric, and chromatographic techniques were used for the chemical-physical analyses, while the OECD method was adopted to assess the trophic level. The phosphorus and chlorophyll values evidenced the… Expand

A perennial bloom of Planktothrix agardhii (Cyanobacteria) in a shallow eutrophic French lake: limnological and microcystin production studies
TLDR
The aim of this preliminary study was to characterise the cyanobacterial bloom limnologically as well as for toxicity levels at one site in the lake and another in the channel, with good correlation between the two methods. Expand
Toxic blooms of Planktothrix rubescens (Cyanobacteria/Phormidiaceae) in three waterbodies in Italy
TLDR
Morphometrical analyses evidenced the occurence of different toxin-producing morphotypes between the blooming populations, and Microcystin-RR was found in samples from Albano and Fiastrone, while anatoxin-a was identified in Spino samples. Expand
First results on Microcystis ichthyoblabe Kütz. toxic bloom in the hypertrophic Oued Mellah reservoir (Morocco)
TLDR
A study of the phytoplankton community of this lake shows that it is affected by potentially toxic blooms of Cyanobacteria and Haptophyceae. Expand
Occurrence of microcystin-containing cyanobacterial blooms in freshwaters of Brittany (France)
TLDR
This study showed for the first time that microcystin-containing cyanobacteria are frequent in the freshwaters of Brittany and it is necessary to monitor the cyanobacterial developments in this region to prevent human health hazards. Expand
Isolation and characterization of microcystins from a river nile strain of Oscillatoria tenuis Agardh ex Gomont.
TLDR
This is the first report of a toxic O. tenuis, strain E6, one which produces a fully methylated MCYST,MCYST-LR and a new L-homoarginine containing MCY ST, MCyST-LHArg. Expand
The effect of water treatment processes on the removal of hepatotoxins fromMicrocystis andOscillatoria cyanobacteria: A laboratory study
The behaviour of hepatotoxins fromMicrocystis andOscillatoria cyanobacteria in some common water treatment processes was investigated on the laboratory scale in order to obtain data on theirExpand
Toxic Cyanobacteria in Greek Freshwaters, 1987—2000: Occurrence, Toxicity, and Impacts in the Mediterranean Region
TLDR
Preliminary evidence indicates that in 3 lakes microcystins are accumulated in some aquatic organisms, and a high risk level can be deduced from the data for the Mediterranean region, with the potential for acute cyanobacterial poisoning. Expand
IDENTIFICATION OF CYLINDROSPERMOPSIN IN APHANIZOMENON OVALISPORUM (CYANOPHYCEAE) ISOLATED FROM LAKE KINNERET, ISRAEL 1
TLDR
The active compound was found to be the sulfate‐guanidinium zwitterion, cylindrospermopsin, previously isolated from the cyanobacterium CylINDrospermopsis raciborskii (Woloszynska) and recently also reported in Umezakia natans. Expand
Spatial and temporal heterogeneity in succession of cyanobacterial blooms in a Spanish reservoir
We describe here the limnological characteristics of the Santillana Reservoir (Spain) and study the phytoplankton distribution during a typical growing season (July to November). The reservoir is aExpand
Isolation, characterization and quantification of microcystins (heptapeptides hepatotoxins) in Microcystis aeruginosa dominated bloom of Lalla Takerkoust lake-reservoir (Morocco).
TLDR
The results show that the presence of cyanobacteria toxins in water used for drinking in a North African country may be regarded as an health hazard. Expand
