Aim: The present study aimed to investigate the composition and toxicity of the phytoplankton in Sitios Novos reservoir, used mainly as drinking water supply for approximately 30,000 people.MethodsSamples were collected between January 2010 and June 2011.ResultsDuring this period 19 taxa of cyanobacteria and 22 of algae were identified. Out of 45 samples collected, algae accounted for no more than 10% of the quantified organisms in 44 samples. Cyanobacteria accounted for 100% of the organisms… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Dolichospermum and Aphanizomenon as neurotoxins producers in some Russian freshwaters
TLDR
The good convergence of the results obtained by light microscopy, PCR and LC‐MS/MS analyses indicated the presence of active neurotoxin producing species in all investigated water bodies, including saxitoxin producers which belonged to Aphanizomenon and/or Dolichospermum genera. Expand
Cyanobacterial blooms in freshwater bodies from a semiarid region, Northeast Brazil: A review
Harmful cyanobacterial blooms have caused several problems in freshwater environments due to their prolific growth and the harmful cyanotoxins produced by some species. The occurrence of theseExpand
Autecology of Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii (Woloszynska) Seenayya et Subba Raju
TLDR
Differences in the environmental conditions of growth and development found in various studies suggest the existence of different ecotypes that will predominate under specific environmental conditions as the most appropriate hypothesis. Expand
Impact of filamentous cyanobacteria on the water quality of two tropical reservoirs
TLDR
The data collected demonstrates that a season with intensive rainfall may lead to lower cyanobacteria concentrations probably due to water dilution and higher flushing rates, and increase in diversity was observed during the intense rainy season of 2011, suggesting a slight improvement of water quality. Expand
The effect of water treatment unit processes on cyanobacterial trichome integrity.
TLDR
The need for plant operators to study the incoming cyanobacterial composition in the raw water in order to adjust treatment parameters and thus limit the potential of toxic/noxious compound breakthrough is stressed. Expand
Phytoplankton responses to an extreme drought season: A case study at two reservoirs from a semiarid region, Northeastern Brazil: Phytoplankton during extreme drought season
The temporal phytoplankton biomass variation at two Neotropical reservoirs during an extreme drought season were analyzed. Here we sought to evaluate the main abiotic factors involved in dynamics ofExpand
The role of hydraulic conditions of coagulation and flocculation on the damage of cyanobacteria.
TLDR
The results indicate that AWWA recommendations for coagulation may cause damage to D. circinale but not to R. raciborskii, suggesting that the operation of water treatment plants could be adjusted according to the dominant cyanobacterium present in the reservoir to avoid cell rupture and metabolite release. Expand
Variation in climate determines differences in the effects of abiotic variables on the phytoplankton community in tropical ecosystems
TLDR
The findings of the present study show that climate determines the effects of abiotic variables on the phytoplankton community in both an independent and synergistic manner. Expand
Detection of morphological changes caused by chemical stress in the cyanobacterium Planktothrix agardhii using convolutional neural networks.
TLDR
This paper aims to look for the best combination of convolutional neural network, optimizer and image segmentation technique to differentiate P. agardhii trichomes before and after chemical stress caused by the addition of hydrogen peroxide, and is the first time that CNNs were applied to detect morphological changes in cyanobacteria caused by chemical stress.

TLDR
The occurrence of toxic blooms in this reservoir points to a permanent risk of cyanotoxins in supply waters, indicating the need for the implementation of bloom control measures to improve the water quality. Expand
