This summer we will have two major field sampling campaigns going on. One is here in southern Sweden, in lakes Ringsjön and Vombsjön. The project is focused on the seasonal dynamics of toxin and non-toxin producing strains of the cyanobacterium Microcystis botrys, and is part of Emma Johansson’s PhD project. The second field sampling expedition will be across the U.S. This sampling is part of Raphael Gollnisch’s PhD project, and is focused on collecting samples of the invasive nuisance raphidophyte Gonyostomum semen. Fingers crossed that both sampling campaigns will be successful!
