This booklet describes crucial rules of and methods to tracking and modeling algal blooms. Freshwater algal blooms became a growing to be trouble around the world. they're as a result of a excessive point of cyanobacteria, really Microcystis spp. and Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii, which could produce microcystin and cylindrospermopsin, respectively. when you consider that long term publicity to those cyanotoxins may perhaps impact public wellbeing and fitness, the trustworthy detection and quantification of those destructive algae species has develop into a concern in water caliber administration.

The e-book makes use of a complicated tracking method of establish and quantify cyanobacteria species and diverse cyanotoxin-producing genotypes. extra, it makes use of a modeling method of forecast the incidence of the phytoplankton that reasons algal blooms in freshwater reservoirs, offering a complete photograph of at the moment to be had micro- and macro-techniques for learning the matter of algal blooms. As such, it bargains a helpful advisor for researchers, graduate scholars engineers engaged in tracking and modeling water caliber in lakes and reservoirs.

Dr. InChio Lou is an Assistant Professor at collage of Macau, Macau, China. Dr. Boping Han is a professor at Jinan Universtiy, Guangzhou, China. Weiying Zhang is a researcher of Environmental Engineering within the zone of freshwater phytoplankton at college of Macau, Macau, China.

4 Principal Component Analysis (PCA) Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin (KMO) and Bartlett’s sphericity tests were performed to examine the suitability of the data for PCA (Shrestha and Kazama 2007; Varol et al. 2012). KMO is a measure of sampling adequacy which indicates the proportion of variance that is common, while Bartlett’s test of sphericity indicates whether a correlation matrix is an identity matrix, which would indicate that variables are unrelated. The significance level indicated whether there were significant relationships among the variables.

The Simpson index (D) of diversity was first introduced by Edward H. Simpson (1949), and it is used to measure the degree of dominance: D¼ s X p2i ð3:6Þ i¼1 3. The evenness was assessed using H0 (Pielou 1966) as follows: J0 ¼ H0 log2 s ð3:7Þ where H0 is the Shannon index in a sample and s is the number of species. 4. Margalef’s richness index (1958) is computed using the formula sÀ1 lnN i ð3:8Þ where s is the number of species and Ni is the number of individuals. The richness referred to the number of algal taxa registered in each sample.

40 W. Zhang et al. 1–1 as heavy pollution (Datta et al. 2010). Our results showed that 12 out of 18 months in the study were classified as moderate pollution state, which was similar to that in Mumbai coast (Datta et al. 2010). This can be explained by that Macau urban area is densely populated and susceptible to heavy anthropogenic stresses. To further study on the spatial and temporal variations in water quality, PCA was served as a means to identify those parameters that had the greatest contribution to variation in the water quality of reservoirs and indicated possible sets of pollutant sources (Singh et al.
