Effects of N:P Ratio on the Occurrence of Harmful Algal Blooms
Palus, James (2015-05)
Urban and agricultural development has had dramatic effects on the biogeochemical cycles of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P). Such nutrient-rich conditions cause cyanobacteria to dominate the phytoplankton, thereby causing ...
