dc.description.abstractMicrocystis aeruginosa (M aeruginosa) a toxic blue-green algae was grown along a phosphorus gradient. This cyanobacterium which is spreading as a result of climate change is harmful to ecosystems which it is dominating and poses a threat to humans and animals. Long-term projects have been undertaken to study Maeruginosa and it's virility. By growing Maeruginosa along it's nutrient gradient it would be possible to use the models obtained to learn more about how this organism interacts with its environment and possibly predict blooms. This study found a small difference in the growth of two strains of Maeruginosa.en_US
