• Project No 4030
  • Project Name Physico-chemical controls on growth and toxicity of Microcystis and Anabaena in water supply reservoirs
  • Lead Organisation WaterNSW
  • Main Researcher Anna Chi Ying Yeung
  • Completion Year 2016

National Research Priority: Liveability

Project Description

This project increased understanding of how cyanobacteria adapt and function in today’s environment. It provided insight to the key factors that contribute to growth of Microcystis and Anabaena in relation to physical conditions of the reservoir and reduced as well as predicted the occurrence and toxicity of blooms by understanding toxin regulation.

PhD Thesis completed by Anna Chi Ying Yeung in August 2016.
