This booklet describes crucial ideas of and techniques to tracking and modeling algal blooms. Freshwater algal blooms became a turning out to be challenge all over the world. they're because of a excessive point of cyanobacteria, relatively Microcystis spp. and Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii, which may produce microcystin and cylindrospermopsin, respectively. when you consider that long term publicity to those cyanotoxins might impact public overall healthiness, the trustworthy detection and quantification of those damaging algae species has develop into a concern in water caliber administration.

The publication makes use of a complicated tracking method of determine and quantify cyanobacteria species and diverse cyanotoxin-producing genotypes. additional, it makes use of a modeling method of forecast the incidence of the phytoplankton that reasons algal blooms in freshwater reservoirs, offering a complete photo of presently to be had micro- and macro-techniques for learning the matter of algal blooms. As such, it deals a worthwhile 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 college of Macau, Macau, China.

Understanding the spatial and temporal variations of phytoplankton community and water quality could help in developing regular monitoring program that is a helpful tool not only to evaluate the impacts of pollution sources but also to ensure an efficient management of water resources and the protection of aquatic ecosystems. Human activities such as periodic pulses of mixing have influenced reservoir features including retention times and water-level fluctuations (Tundisi et al. 1999). 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).

We have applied and tested an online phycocyanin (PC) fluorescence probe for rapid monitoring of cyanobacteria in the Macau Storage Reservoir (MSR) that is experiencing cyanobacterial blooms. The relationships among cyanobacterial abundance, biovolume, cylindrospermopsin concentration, and PC fluorescence were analyzed using both laboratory and in-the-field studies. The performance of the probe was compared with traditional methods, and its advantages and limitations were assessed in pure and mixed cyanobacterial cultures in the laboratory.
