Harmful cyanobacteria, commonly known as blue-green algae, are notorious for causing worldwide ecological and economic problems in eutrophic lakes and reservoirs, where they can produce dense and often toxic blooms. It is predicted that climate change will have a considerable effect on these photosynthetic microorganisms. Guovanni Sandrini investigates the impact of elevated CO2 on various strains of the ubiquitous and harmful cyanobacterium Microcystis aeruginosa.
