In these ecosystems, toxic and non-toxic algae blooms often produce large and unpredictable biomasses of phytoplankton. The Microtox R test has been described as a successful, quick method for detecting toxicity in various phytoplankton taxa. Ourstudy sought to test the efficiency of Microtox R in detecting toxic HAB in Mediterranean salt marshes. The results showed that the Microtox R test was able to detect toxic substances in the particulate matter of several lagoons in the Empordà salt marshes. This Microtox R toxicity coincided with periods when potentially harmful cyanobacteria, dinoflagellates and haptophytes had a high biomass. The results suggest that potentially harmful phytoplankton cannot be ruled out as a source of Microtox R" , "dc.format.mimetype": "application/pdf" , "dc.language.iso": "eng" , "dc.publisher": "Asociación Ibérica de Limnología" , "dc.relation.isformatof": "Reproducció digital del document publicat a: http://www.limnetica.net" , "dc.relation.ispartof": "© Limnetica, 2010, vol. 29, núm. 2, p. 257-268" , "dc.relation.ispartofseries": "Articles publicats (D-CCAA)" , "dc.rights": "Tots els drets reservats" , "dc.subject": "Aiguamolls de l'Empordà (Catalunya) -- Aspectes ambientals" , "dc.subject": "Algues tòxiques -- Catalunya -- Aiguamolls de l'Empordà" , "dc.subject": "Empordà Marshes -- Environmental aspects" , "dc.subject": "Toxic algae -- Catalonia -- Aiguamolls de l'Empordà" , "dc.title": "Is Microtox R toxicity related to potentially harmful algae proliferation in Mediterranean salt marshes?" , "dc.type": "info:eu-repo/semantics/article" , "dc.rights.accessRights": "info:eu-repo/semantics/openAccess" , "dc.type.version": "info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion" , "dc.identifier.idgrec": "013574" }
