(2003), cyanobacteria blooms in moderately deep, stratified eutrophic lakes are characterized by the dominating Nostocales and, in contrast, shallow lakes are dominated by the family Oscillatoriaceae (Limnothrix-type) owing to their ability to use low amounts of light in turbid water.

Lakes dominated by Oscillatoriaceae are typically very turbid, and when winters are not too cold the dominance can even persist throughout the year (Berger 1975, Sas 1989).
Among the Families, Oscillatoriaceae was represented with 4 species and Merismopediaceae with 3 species is in the next order.
Environmental variables for CCA were total nitrogen, soluble phosphorus, and pH; diversity dataset was restricted to Nostocaceae, Oscillatoriaceae, Diatomaceae, Naviculaceae, Closteriaceae, and Zygnemataceae families.
