Desertifilum is a filamentous cyanobacterium of crusts and biofilms, recently described from the extreme hot and dry Thar Desert in north–western India. A new species was isolated from a warm spring near Lake Bogoria, Kenya ...
Cyanobacterial diversity in the hot spring, pelagic and benthic habitats of a tropical soda lake
Hot springs and saline-alkaline lakes of East Africa are extreme habitats regarding temperature, or salinity and pH, respectively. This study examines whether divergent habitats of Lake Bogoria, Kenya, impacts cyanobacterial ...
Contribution of hot spring cyanobacteria to the mysterious deaths of Lesser Flamingos at Lake Bogoria, Kenya
Cyanobacterial mats at hot springs on the shore of the alkaline Lake Bogoria, Kenya, were investigated regarding species community and cyanobacterial toxin content. The hepatotoxins microcystin-LR, -RR, -LF and -YR, and ...
