About this book

Phytoplankton responses to human impact at different scales provides a state-of-the-art review of changes in the phytoplankton assemblages determined by human alterations of lakes and rivers. A wide spectrum of case studies describe the effects due to eutrophication and climate change, as well as other impacts connected with watershed management, hydrological alterations and introduction of non-indigenous species. The volume also includes two wide reviews on planktonic coccoid green algae and planktic heterocytous cyanobacteria. This book is addressed to ecologists and scientists involved in phytoplankton ecology and taxonomy. Many case studies provide a sound scientific basis of knowledge for a wise management of water bodies.

About the authors

Nico Salmaso (b. 1963). Graduated at the University of Padua (MSc, Natural Sciences, 1988) and University of Parma (PhD, Ecology, 2005), Italy. Senior Researcher at the Istituto Agrario di S. Michele all’Adige, Foundation E. Mach. His interest is focused on the ecology and long term dynamics of plankton and toxic cyanobacteria in different freshwater environments and in relation to human impact and climate change. He is member of the editorial boards of the Journal of Limnology (PAGEPress) and Advances in Oceanography and Limnology (Taylor & Francis).

 

 Luigi Naselli Flores(b.1964) graduated at the University of Palermo, Italy (MSc: 1989; PhD: 1999), biologist, Professor of Plant Ecology at the University of Palermo. He has been dealing with plankton ecology in Mediterranean inland waters since the beginning of his professional career. He presently serves as chairman of the European Federation for Freshwater Sciences (EFFS), president of the Italian Association of Oceanology and Limnology (AIOL), member of the Scientific Committee of the International Lake Environment Committee (ILEC). He is one of the associate editors of Hydrobiologia (Springer) and Lakes & Reservoirs: Research and Management (Wiley).

 

 Leonardo Cerasino (b. 1971). Graduated at the University of Bari, Italy (MSc, Medicinal Chemistry, 1996; PhD, Bioinorganic Chemistry, 2002). He has conducted research in the fields of analytical and bioinorganic chemistry (University of Bari, Italy and University of Bergen, Norway). From 2007 he is Researcher at the Istituto Agrario di S. Michele all’Adige, Foundation E. Mach. His main research interests concern the chemical characterization of cyanobacterial toxins in different matrices (water, aquatic organisms) and the trophic transfer of toxins in aquatic environments.

 

 Giovanna Flaim (b. 1956) Education - BS in Biology 1977 from Manhattan College (USA), MS in Biological Sciences (1979) from the University of Milan (I) and PhD in Botany (2005) from the University of Innsbruck (A). Researcher at the Istituto Agrario di S. Michele all’Adige, Foundation E. Mach. Main interests are algal physiology and limnology with particular regard to ecosystem functioning and the relation of abiotic and biotic factors to plankton autecology.

 

Monica Tolotti (b. 1968) Graduated at the University of Padua (MSc, Biological Sciences, 1993) and Innsbruck, Austria, (PhD, Natural Sciences, 2000). Researcher at the Istituto Agrario di S. Michele all’Adige, Foundation E. Mach. Her interests focus on long term phytoplankton dynamics and palaeolimnological reconstruction of lake ecological evolution in relation to human impact and climate change.

 

 Judit Padisák (b. 1955) graduated at the Eötvös Loránd University of Budapest, Hungary (1979; PhD: 1990; habilitation: 1998; DSc: 1999), biologist, Professor of Limnology. She is dealing with phytoplankton community ecology since the beginning of her professional career; associate editor of Hydrobiologia, guest editor of six special volumes (Developments in Hydrobiology 81, 100, 150, 172 and Hydrobiologia 506–509, 578). She is an elected Executive Vice President of the International Society of Limnology (SIL).
