Abstract

Batch cultures of Microcystis aeruginosa (M. aeruginosa) were cultivated at seven different temperatures to measure the specific growth rate at each temperature. A relationship between temperature and specific growth rate was established. We propose a cardinal temperature model for M. aeruginosa with the inflection point (optimal temperature) located at 27.5°C. The model describes 98% of the variability of experimental data from 5°C to 35°C. A digital inline holographic microscope was employed to visualize and analyze the buoyancy of the M. aeruginosa colonies at two different temperatures. The results demonstrated a five times difference in buoyant velocities of colonies at 17.5°C and 28°C. A model was derived to calculate the density of a colony using the buoyant velocity and colony size. The findings provide a better understanding of temperature effects on the growth and buoyancy of M. aeruginosa. The results could facilitate the prediction and mitigation of harmful algal blooms in aquatic ecosystems.
