2015 - Influence of nutrients on Microcystis blooms in the Charles River watershed

Grant Award Year: 
Principal Investigator: 
Moisander, Pia
Research Description: 
There were two major goals of this research: 1) to investigate the spatio-temporal distribution of potentially toxin-producing cyanobacteria in the Charles River during the growth season, and 2) to investigate the influence of nutrients on overall growth limitation of phytoplankton in the Charles River, in parallel with relative influence on potentially toxic species of cyanobacteria.
