The planktonic flora of a recently landlocked brackish-water lagoon of Lake Tanganyika was studied. 273 Taxa were observed including 5 new ones: Trachelomonas dubia Swir. emend. Defl. var. colliundulata Caljon, Tr. gatumbana Caljon, Tr. komarovii Skv. var. bicollaris Caljon, Chroomonas angusta Caljon, Scourfieldia chlorolateralis Caljon. Diatoms were qualitatively the most important group (37.7%) followed by the Chlorophyta (23.0%), the Euglenophyta (19.4%) and the Cyanophyta (13.6%). This… Expand

A recently landlocked brackish-water lagoon of Lake Tanganyika: physical and chemical characteristics, and spatio-temporal distribution of phytoplankton
TLDR
The relatively higher salinity in the eastern water-body during the rainy season was probably responsible for the dominance of blue-green algae through its negative influence on silica concentration and notwithstanding the high inorganic nitrogen concentration. Expand
Diatoms from surface sediments of the northern part of Lake Tanganyika
TLDR
The diatom community of these sediments is mainly composed of benthic organisms while planktonic diatoms are rather rare, and many brackish-water and a few marine organisms were observed. Expand
Freshwater algae from lakes in the lower Niger Delta system (Nigeria)
Samples from two flood plain lakes (Umuorodog-wum I and II) and one permanent natural lake (Oguta) of the lower Niger Delta system (Imo State, Nigeria), representing the outcome of a single samplingExpand
Diatom assemblages in surface sediments along the east coast of Lake Tanganyika
TLDR
Surface sediment diatoms from the east coast of Lake Tanganyika were analysed using ordination and classification techniques, and compared with assemblages previously described from the northern part of the lake, finding the impact of small rivers on the diatom assemblage in the surface sediments is restricted to the mouth area. Expand
Functional groups of phytoplankton shaping diversity of shallow lake ecosystems
TLDR
It is found that both functional and species diversity were low when bloom-forming cyanobacteria (H1, SN functional groups) became dominant, and decrease in diversity might be expected at biovolume >20 mm3 l−1 for shallow lakes. Expand
Sedimentary diatom assemblages in the northern part of Lake Tanganyika
Surface sediment diatoms from the northern part of Lake Tanganyika were analysed with several ordination and classification techniques. Three sample groups characterized by four diatom assemblagesExpand
AFRICAN FRESHWATER ALGAE: A BIBLIOGRAPHIC UP-DATE
TLDR
A total of 388 references on African freshwater algae spanning forty-seven years, 1956-2003, are listed in this report, which complements those of Brook et al. (1957) from 1800 to 1955 and Kadiri (1992) from 1956 to 1991. Expand

Abstract Epithemia hirudiniformis and three morphologically related taxa, described in Rhopalodia by O. Müller from material collected in East Africa at the end of the 19th and the beginning of theExpand
Flora planctónica de laguna Lagartos, Quintana Roo
TLDR
Se presenta la flora fitoplanctonica de Laguna Lagartos, Quintana Roo, basada en the observacion de muestras obtenidas entre noviembre de 2007 y septiembre of 2008, y quince especies fueron nuevas citas para Mexico. Expand
Ultrastructure and Large Subunit rDNA‐Based Phylogeny of Sphaerodinium cracoviense, an Unusual Freshwater Dinoflagellate with a Novel Type of Eyespot
TLDR
Bayesian and maximum likelihood analyses based on large subunit rDNA placed Sphaerodinium as a sister taxon to a group of woloszynskioids and relatively far from Peridinium and its allies. Expand

The algae contained in some plankton samples from several localities on four wadi in N.E. Sudan were examined. The observed algae amount to 260 taxa, of which the diatoms, representing 50% of theExpand
Some algae from the Red Sea Hills in north-eastern Sudan
TLDR
Algae contained in some plankton samples from several localities on four wadi in N.E. Sudan were examined, of which the diatoms are the most numerous and other large groups are the blue-green algae and the green algae among which the desmids are rather unimportant. Expand
Diatoms from the Vaal Dam Catchment Area Transvaal, South Africa
TLDR
The objects of this survey were to gather back ground knowledge of die conditions in this area, and to study the factors that affect the quality of the water in the rivers and streams running into the Vaal Dam. Expand

TLDR
A comparison of the seasonal phytoplankton groups in the Kapellen-polderkreek with the sample set of November 1976 shows clear trends in both the number and the preferences of these groups. Expand
Ecological investigations on filamentous freshwater algae
TLDR
Estimation of quantities of several species in a growth of filamentous algae in some cases has to be limited to recognition of presence or absence, and culturing in the laboratory may offer satisfactory results. Expand
