  • Two cyanobacterial strains can be distinguished from each other and other eukaryotic algae by spectral absorption method

    Spectral absorption method based on two step linear regression analyses (TSLR) was applied for detection of two strains of cyanobacterium, Microcystis (blue-green algae) from eukaryotic algae. Both blue-green algae, algae and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) were considered from freshwater bodies in Kanto region, Japan. The results show that blue-green species can be detected from other algal ...

  • Map Algal Blooms with Satellite Remote Sensing Technology

    The quality of water bodies is a key determinant in the usability of the resource for the purpose required. It is therefore of great importance to managers of hydrologic resources to be able to confidently tell the status of their water resource. One of the major problems in the quality of surface water bodies is the blooming of algae and blue green algae. Algal blooms can result in ecological, ...

  • Algal blooms: What are they?

    Algal blooms are also known as marine blooms or water blooms, and are actually a sudden increase in the population of algae in water scenery. Algal blooms usually take place in freshwater, such as lakes and water reservoirs as well as in marine milieus. They can be easily identified by coloration of the water ensuing from the high density of pigmented cells. Though many types of algae can form ...

  • Impacts of Climate Change on the Occurrence of Harmful Algal Blooms

    Climate change has been occurring naturally as well as caused by anthropogenic activities over the decades. In relation to the fresh and marine water, the concentration of greenhouse gases results in temperature rise of surface water, lower pH and changes to precipitation, evaporation and vertical mixing of water. All these consequences of changing the environment in combination with excessive ...

  • Grana-Localized Proteins, RIQ1 and RIQ2, Affect the Organization of Light-Harvesting Complex II and Grana Stacking in Arabidopsis

    Abstract Grana are stacked thylakoid membrane structures in land plants that contain photosystem II (PSII) and light-harvesting complex II proteins (LHCIIs). We isolated two Arabidopsis mutants, reduced induction of non-photochemical quenching (riq1 and riq2), in which stacking of grana was enhanced. The curvature thylakoid 1a curt1a) mutant was previously shown to lack grana structure. ...
