Abstract
Blooms of cyanobacteria have been widely reported in enriched freshwater systems and are predicted to further intensify. Blooms appear to be recurrent and predictable with a very high probability of associated toxicities. It has been established that cyanobacterial blooms reduce phytoplankton biodiversity. The presence of toxins additionally decrease the number of species. Our research results enables us to classify certain species as susceptible and others as tolerant to the toxic blooms. With the use of our computer system we can predict the degree of bloom toxicity on the basis of phytoplankton population and vice versa.
