ABSTRACT

This study developed cyanobacterial indicators that inferred P conditions from species composition of cyanobacterial mats and Eleocharis periphyton using weighted average regression techniques. Green algae had a lower phosphorus optima and tolerances than Cyanophyta. Epiphytic species had a smaller optima range and lower tolerances than floating mats. The best inference model was the epiphytic Cyanophyta model for surface sediment P (WAjack r2 = 0.4236). Cyanophyta were a reliable indicator of phosphorus when compared to other studies and should be used in assessing the Florida Everglades.
