The Lesser Flamingos constantly commute between the soda lakes of East Africa in search of food. Their preferred food, the cyanobacterium Arthrospira fusiformis, usually establishes dense populations in saline–alkaline ...
The rise of potentially toxin producing cyanobacteria in Lake Naivasha, Great African Rift Valley, Kenya
Lake Naivasha, an important inland water ecosystem and a crucial freshwater resource in the Great African Rift Valley, has displayed clear signals of degradation in recent decades. We studied the phytoplankton composition ...
Changes of phytoplankton communities in Lakes Naivasha and Oloidien, examples of degradation and salinization of lakes in the Kenyan Rift Valley
Increasing degradation of the water quality, caused by overuse and salinization, leads to considerable changes of the phytoplankton composition in Kenyan Rift Valley lakes. Exemplarily, the phytoplankton communities ...
