Ecological Role of Microcystin: Evidence from a Field Study (NALMS 2018)
Banerji, A., M. Bagley, J. Shoemaker, Dan Tettenhorst, C. Nietch, Joel Allen, AND J. Santodomingo. Ecological Role of Microcystin: Evidence from a Field Study (NALMS 2018). 38th International Symposium of the North American Lake Management Society, Cincinnati, OH, October 30 - November 02, 2018.
These findings provide new insight into the currently debated ecological functions of microcystin in freshwater reservoirs. Microcystin is a hepatotoxin that has been linked to the deaths of humans and domesticated animals and a common constituent of increasingly frequent cyanobacterial harmful algal blooms throughout the world.
A presentation of some important findings from an investigation into the ecological function and triggers of microcystin production. Our approach combined molecular genetic tools and systems ecology.
