Temporal and Spatial Trends in Toxic Cyanobacteria as Identified Through Lake Sediment DNA

Shinjini Pal
Cyanobacterial and algal blooms can negatively affect water quality particularly when producing toxins that affect human health and wildlife. While reports of blooms are on the rise globally, their underlying causes remain unclear. The goal of this thesis was to determine temporal changes in cyanobacterial abundance and composition through sediment cores in relation to (1) altered land-use leading to cultural eutrophication and (2) warmer air temperatures that have been recorded in the past few decades....
