Temporal and Environmental Factors Driving the Vibrio Vulnificus and V. Parahaemolyticus populations and Their Associations with Harmful Algal Blooms in South Carolina Detention Ponds and Receiving Tidal Creeks
(JOURNAL) [Published : Nov 28, 2017]
Incidences of harmful algal blooms (HABs) and Vibrio infections have increased over recent decades. Numerous studies have tried to identify environmental factors driving HABs and pathogenic Vibrio populations separately. Few have considered the two simultaneously, though emerging...
Human health effects and remotely sensed cyanobacteria
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : Nov 13, 2017]
Cyanobacteria blooms (HAB) pose a potential health risk to beachgoers, including HAB-associated gastrointestinal, respiratory and dermal illness. We conducted a prospective study of beachgoers at a Great Lakes beach during July – September, 2003. We recorded each participan...
Human health effects associated with exposure to toxic Cyanobacteria – what is the evidence?
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : Feb 28, 2017]
Reports of toxic cyanobacteria blooms are increasing worldwide, as warming water and eutrophic surface water systems support the development of blooms. As awareness of toxic cyanobacteria blooms increases, reports of associated human and animal illnesses have also increased, but ...
One Health and Toxic Cyanobacteria
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : Jul 24, 2017]
One Health and toxic cyanobacteria Blooms of toxic freshwater blue-green algae or cyanobacteria (HABs) have been in the news after HABs associated with human and animal health problems have been reported in Florida, California and Utah during 2016. HABs occur in warm, slow moving...
Freshwater harmful algal bloom exposure – an emerging health risk for recreational water users
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : Aug 28, 2014]
Freshwater harmful algal bloom exposure – an emerging health risk for recreational water users Elizabeth D. Hilborn1, Virginia A. Roberts2, Lorraine C. Backer3, Jonathan S. Yoder2, Timothy J. Wade1, Michele C. Hlavsa2 1Environmental Public Health Division, Office of Researc...
Algal bloom-associated disease outbreaks among users of freshwater lakes-United States, 2009 - 2010
(JOURNAL) [Published : Jan 10, 2014]
‘Algal blooms’ are local abundances of phytoplankton – microscopic photosynthesizing aquatic organisms found in surface waters worldwide; blooms are variable temporally and spatially and frequently produce a visible algal scum on the water. Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are abundan...
Associations between marine phytoplankton and symptoms of illness among recreational beachgoers in Puerto Rico, 2009
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : May 09, 2014]
While phytoplankton generally have crucial roles in marine ecosystems, a small subset can release toxins and produce harmful algal blooms (HABs). HABs can be a threat to human health as symptoms from exposure range from neurological impairment to gastrointestinal (GI), dermal, a...
