Effect of iron complexation with dissolved organic matter on the growth of cyanobacteria in a eutrophic lake
Aquatic Microbial Ecology
Dissolved organic matter (DOM) in lake water can have a harmful effect on algal growth through either direct toxicity or iron limitation induced by its complexation with iron. We assessed the effect of iron complexation with DOM on algal growth in the eutrophic Lake Kasumigaura, Japan, using 2 species of cyanobacteria, Microcystis aeruginosa and Planktothrix agardhii, by combining the algal growth potential (AGP) test and pretreatment of DOM decomposition by UV irradiation. We also determineddoi:10.3354/ame044231 fatcat:ssquobhk3bhktmwotb3h2edjfu
