By Inchio Lou, Boping Han, Weiying Zhang

This publication describes crucial ideas of and techniques to tracking and modeling algal blooms. Freshwater algal blooms became a turning out to be quandary all over the world. they're brought on by a excessive point of cyanobacteria, fairly Microcystis spp. and Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii, which could produce microcystin and cylindrospermopsin, respectively. on the grounds that long term publicity to those cyanotoxins may well impact public well-being, the trustworthy detection and quantification of those destructive algae species has turn into a concern in water caliber administration.

The ebook makes use of a complicated tracking method of establish and quantify cyanobacteria species and diverse cyanotoxin-producing genotypes. additional, it makes use of a modeling method of forecast the prevalence of the phytoplankton that reasons algal blooms in freshwater reservoirs, supplying a finished photo of at present on hand micro- and macro-techniques for learning the matter of algal blooms. As such, it bargains a invaluable advisor for researchers, graduate scholars engineers engaged in tracking and modeling water caliber in lakes and reservoirs.

Dr. InChio Lou is an Assistant Professor at collage of Macau, Macau, China. Dr. Boping Han is a professor at Jinan Universtiy, Guangzhou, China. Weiying Zhang is a researcher of Environmental Engineering within the region of freshwater phytoplankton at collage of Macau, Macau, China.

Chapter 4 Using an Online Phycocyanin Fluorescence Probe for Rapid Monitoring of Cyanobacteria in Macau Freshwater Reservoir Yijun Kong, Inchio Lou, Yiyong Zhang, Chong U. Lou, and Kai Meng Mok Abstract Monitoring of cyanobacteria and their toxins is traditionally conducted by cell counting, chlorophyll-a (chl-a) determination and cyanotoxin measurements, respectively.

Due to physical disturbances in small-scale pumped storage eutrophic reservoirs, changes of phytoplankton community structure response to water quality tend to be more pronounced (Naselli-Flores 2000; Naselli-Flores and Barone 2005). These changes can reveal important aspects of susceptibilities and tolerances of the species present that form the community, which is fundamental to biological monitoring of the reservoirs. Previous studies on reservoirs have generally dealt with the structural compositions of the phytoplankton community, focusing on the taxonomic surveys and ecological studies (Nogueira et al.
