    General Introduction:

    The goal of the group aims at: 1.Elucidation of the dynamics of bloom in large-shallow lakes and its driving forces; 2. Understanding the production, toxicity and fate of cyanobacterial toxins/off-flavor substances; 3. Physiological aspects of bio-diesel-producing algae and other high value algae. Recently, we illustrated, from physiological point of view, the phenomena why the colonial Microcystis have better adaptation over stress compared with single ones. We found that the water-sediment interface may play a great role in the degradation of cyanobacteial toxins in large-shallow lakes. Currently, several projects are being carried out in area of the cyanobacterial bloom, cyanobacterial toxins and off-flavor substances, etc.
