Long-term cyanobacterial dynamics from lake sediment DNA in relation to experimental eutrophication, acidification and climate change

Cyanobacterial blooms in aquatic environments have impacted ecosystem health, altered food webs and contributed to substantial regional economic losses. The relative impacts of climate change, eutrophication and other environmental stressors on the formation of cyanobacterial blooms remain unclear as a consequence of the lack of long-term data. The analysis of lake sediment archives can help address such questions.
