Rising CO2 levels and algal blooms

A study of the cyanobacterium Microcystis, which can cause toxic algal blooms in lakes and reservoirs, finds that natural selection favors strains with different carbon uptake systems at different carbon dioxide concentrations, suggesting that rising atmospheric carbon dioxide levels may induce rapid adaptive change in harmful cyanobacterial blooms. - Read at PNAS.org
