Contents Notes
Blue-green algae (also known as cyanobacteria) and the toxins they can produce pose economic, environmental, and public health problems. Much of the scientific and public interest in these microorganisms arises from their tendency to undergo explosive population growth and form harmful blooms, which have inflicted damage in industries as diverse as health care, public utilities, agriculture, recreation, real estate, and commercial and sport fishing. This book explains how to identify different kinds of cyanobacteria and understand their impact on waterways. Collecting cyanobacteria -- Description -- Cyanobacterial toxicity -- Cyanotoxin classification -- Preventive maintenance and control of algal blooms -- The key -- Descriptions of genera.
