Temporal and spatial variation in the concentrations of intra- and extra-cellular microcystins were studied in a hypertrophic lake with bloom of Planktothrix agardhii (Gomont) Anagnostidis et Komarek. Concomitantly with increase in water temperature (from 2 to 20 °C) abundance of P. agardhii increased from 1.9 x 10 5 to 4.3 x 10 7 trichomes L -1 . In autumn, in spite of temperature lower (14°C) than in summer it was still very high. Mass development of P. agardhii (to 6 x 10 6 L -1 and… Expand

Temporal variation in microcystin production by Planktothrix agardhii (Gomont) Anagnostidis and Komarek (Cyanobacteria, Oscillatoriales) in a temperate lake
TLDR
This study showed that P. agardhii biomass and filament morphology may be useful characteristics for the identification of threats associated with cyanotoxins, and found that environmental factors, such as water temperature, phosphate level, ammonium nitrogen and transparency, were the most related to microcystin production.

Replacement of chroococcales and nostocales by oscillatoriales caused a significant increase in microcystin concentrations in a dam reservoir
Abstract A two-year study on cyanobacterial development and the dynamics of intracellular microcystins was carried out in a shallow dam reservoir. Potentially toxic cyanobacteria (MicrocystisExpand
Variability of microcystin cell quota in metapopulations of Planktothrix rubescens: causes and implications for water management.
TLDR
It is shown that the use of quantile regressions has different advantages, which included the computation of MC quota based on the whole range of available data, the robustness against outliers, and the ability to estimate models also in cases where there is no or only weak relationships. Expand
Cyanotoxin diversity and food web bioaccumulation in a reservoir with decreasing phosphorus concentrations and perennial cyanobacterial blooms
TLDR
The variability of the profile of cyanobacterial blooms that depends on nutrient fluctuations and may account for the diverse toxin accumulation and tissue distribution in freshwater ichthyofauna is noteworthy, especially in water bodies used for fishery. Expand
Vertical distribution of cyanobacteria biomass and cyanotoxin production in the polymictic Siemianówka Dam Reservoir (eastern Poland)
Abstract The summer-autumn dominance of the toxic cyanobacterium Planktothrix agardhii was described in the lowland polymictic Siemianowka Dam Reservoir (SDR) in 2010 and 2011. The study wasExpand
Regular research paper
TLDR
In the hypertrophic lake the very high nutrient concentrations (especially NH 4 -N and PO 4 -P), found both in winter and summer, were responsible for year-long mass development of phytoplankton. Expand
Cyanobacteria in a eutrophicated reservoir in a semi-arid region in Brazil: dominance and microcystin events of blooms
TLDR
Stable conditions, availability of nutrients, and a reduced light regime during the dry period favors blooms of cyanobacteria in semi-arid regions. Expand
Sedimentary imprint of cyanobacterial blooms - a new tool for insight into recent history of lakes.
Recent history of numerous lakes is, among others, a consequence of anthropogenic activity that led to water eutrophication and excessive phytoplankton development. In nutrient-rich lakes bothExpand
Occurrence of microcystins and anatoxin-a in eutrophic lakes of Saint Petersburg, Northwestern Russia
TLDR
Regular studies into the production of cyanotoxins in these water bodies were carried out for the first time and revealed the presence of microcystins in 59% of the samples collected during a 3-year study. Expand
Detection of a Planktothrix agardhii Bloom in Portuguese Marine Coastal Waters
TLDR
This is, to the authors' knowledge, the first report on a P. agardhii bloom reaching the sea and points to the relevance to also monitoring freshwater harmful phytoplankton and related toxins in seafood harvesting and recreational coastal areas, particularly under the influence of river plumes.

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
Regulation of cyanobacteria and microcystin dynamics in polymictic shallow lakes
TLDR
A comparative study on seasonal dynamics of cyanobacteria and microcystins in relation to physical and chemical parameters was carried out in three polymictic shallow lakes, with P agardhii as the stronger competitor under higher phosphorus concentrations. Expand
Microcystins (hepatotoxic heptapeptides) in german fresh water bodies
TLDR
The seasonal levels of these cyanobacteria were clearly reflected by microcystin concentrations in the water bodies, which varied by 4 orders of magnitude at bathing sites in 1997 during a mass development of Microcystis spp. Expand
Factors controlling the dominance of Planktothrix agardhii and Limnothrix redekei in eutrophic shallow lakes
Lakes in the Scharmützelsee-region (East-Brandenburg,Germany) were found to be dominated either by Limnothrixredekei or Planktothrix agardhii. These dominanceregimes were stable over the wholeExpand
Relationship between Cyanobacterial bloom composition and anatoxin-a and microcystin occurrence in the eutrophic dam reservoir (SE Poland)
TLDR
First time in Poland, mass occurrence of Anabaena strains producing anatoxin-a was observed and the total abundance of potential microcystin producers was positively correlated with the content of these hepatotoxins in the reservoir water. Expand
RECRUITMENT OF BENTHIC MICROCYSTIS (CYANOPHYCEAE) TO THE WATER COLUMN: INTERNAL BUOYANCY CHANGES OR RESUSPENSION? 1
TLDR
Observations indicate that attachment of sediment particles to colonies plays an important part in the buoyancy state of benthic colonies, and suggest that recruitment of Microcystis is more likely a passive process resulting from resuspension by wind‐induced mixing or bioturbation than deep areas.

Microcystin analysis in single filaments of Planktothrix spp. in laboratory cultures and environmental blooms.
Single filaments of Planktothrix spp. were isolated from laboratory cultures of P. agardhii (NIES 595) and P. rubescens (SL 03) and from four freshwater lakes in England and Turkey. Filament lengthsExpand

TLDR
The cyanobacterium Planktothrix agardhii, which is dominant in many shallow eutrophic lakes, can produce hepatotoxic microcystins, and the effect of photon irradiance on the production of differentMicrocystin variants by P. agardHii is investigated using light-limited turbidostats. Expand

TLDR
The competitive replacement of toxic by nontoxic strains offers a plausible explanation for the gradual decrease in average toxicity per cell during the development of dense Microcystis blooms. Expand

TLDR
Temporal variability in the concentration of toxic heptapeptide microcystin was studied during the warm season of four years in a hypertrophic lake in central Honshu, Japan, suggesting that release of microcyStin from cells occurs during senescence and the decomposition period of Microcystis cells.
