This book: Deals with eutrophication impact on ecosystem functioning with a different focus and broader perspective.Takes into account the effects of multiple stressors on microalgal assemblages. Includes specific contributions on the autoecology and taxonomy of dinoflagellates and cyanobacteria. Features examples of applications of the morphology-, morpho-functional and functional groups (FG), (MFG) and (MBFG) Phytoplankton responses to human impact at different scales provides a state-of-the-art review of changes in the phytoplankton assemblages determined by human alterations of lakes and rivers. A wide spectrum of case studies describe the effects due to eutrophication and climate change, as well as other impacts connected with watershed management, hydrological alterations and introduction of non-indigenous species. The volume also includes two wide reviews on planktonic coccoid green algae and planktic heterocytous cyanobacteria. This book is addressed to ecologists and scientists involved in phytoplankton ecology and taxonomy. Many case studies provide a sound scientific basis of knowledge for a wise management of water bodies.
