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 ...
Haloleptolyngbya alcalis gen. et sp. nov., a new filamentous cyanobacterium from the soda lake Nakuru, Kenya
The food web of the saline-alkaline Lake Nakuru is dominated by the cyanobacterium Arthrospira fusiformis as the primary producer and a huge population of Lesser Flamingos as direct consumers. However, the dense blooms ...
Phylogenetic and morphological diversity of culturable cyanobacteria from Lake Magadi in Kenya
Lake Magadi is an alkaline saline Lake in Kenya, which lies on the Great Eastern Rift valley. Although the lake is characterized by extremes of salt, pH and temperature, it supports diverse groups of cyanobacteria. In ...
