Abstract: Overall, our results emphasize the presence of strong competitive interactions between Microcystis strains in the absence of grazing, whereas indirect positive interactions are prevalent in the presence of a generalist grazer. Our results suggest that differences in functional traits and grazer-mediated facilitation effects may enhance coexistence of Microcystis strains, including toxic and non-toxic strains.
