Blue Green Algae Blooms: Is Phosphorous Responsible?

 Phosphorus is often described as the nutrient that limits primary production in temperate freshwater ecosystems. However, phosphorus exists in multiple forms and not all forms are equally useable by algae and phytoplankton for growth. Understanding common types of phosphorus and their relative availability to primary producers can be important knowledge for management of watersheds and lake water quality.
