Effects of eutrophication and the available possibilities for effective restoration of water reservoirs

Previous event: 2022.05.18

Spring Ecological Seminar titled “Effects of eutrophication and the available possibilities for effective restoration of water reservoirs” was held on-line on May 18, 2022. This international seminar was held in English. It gathered outstanding researchers, water reclamation specialists from Universities in Poland, China and the USA, and was addressed mainly to students and Ph-D students. The main organizer was Normal University Nanyang in cooperation with Ningbo University in China. About 3,000 participants took part, including scientists and students. The LIFE project was represented by prof. Beata Messyasz, who gave a lecture entitled “Cyanobacteria and filamentous green algae as autogenic bioengineers which modify water environment”. Information on the problems of cyanobacterial blooms and macroscopic green algae development within the possibilities of their management context was presented, based on the examples of results obtained in the project so far. During the Seminar, great interest aroused the issue of a wide range of unique properties of chemical compounds that contain algae. It was emphasized that natural bioactive compounds encompass a wide variety of structures and functionalities. Interested students completed the English version of the water blooms questionnaires provided by the website of the “Algae Service for LIFE” project.
