Algae and their Biotechnological Potential

by Springer

Algae are important organisms that include seaweeds and a number of single-celled and multicellular microscopic forms. Algae are ubiquitous; they inhabit almost everywhere including oceans, freshwater bodies, rocks, soils, and trees. Man's uses of algae may date back to ancient times. In recent decades, there has been renewed interest in the ...;

Ecology of Harmful Algae

by Springer

Harmful algal blooms are one of the consequences of the human impact on aquatic ecosystems, particularly the process of eutrophication. They can cause a variety of deleterious effects, including the poisoning of fish and shellfish, habitat disruptions for many organisms, water discolouration, beach fouling, and even toxic effects for humans.This ...;

Addressing Concerns About Tastes and Odors and Cyanotoxins in Tap Water

by IWA Publishing

Consumers today demand drinking water that looks, smells, and tastes good. The occurrence of aesthetically unpleasing T&O compounds in water creates a perception of unsafe water. The main sources of T&O problems in municipal water supplies are certain types of algae, mainly blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) and fungi (actinomycetes). Although many ...;

Eutrophication of Shallow Lakes with Special Reference to Lake Taihu, China

by Springer

Eutrophication and algal blooms are worldwide environmental issues in lakes. The eutrophication process and formation mechanisms of algal blooms are particularly complicated in shallow lakes due to the strong lake–land, air–water and water–sediment interactions. This volume features papers presented at the International Symposium on the ...;

Real-time Coastal Observing Systems for Marine Ecosystem Dynamics and Harmful Algal Blooms

by Earthprint Ltd

The proliferation of harmful phytoplankton in marine ecosystems can cause massive fish kills, contaminate seafood with toxins, impact local and regional economies and dramatically affect ecological balance. Real-time observations are essential for effective short-term operational forecasting, but observation and modelling systems are still being ...;

Determination and Significance of Emerging Algal Toxins (Cyanotoxins)

by IWA Publishing

Cyanobacterial blooms have a long history and are widely recognized as sources of taste and odors in water supplies. There is an increasing concern for health effects in consumers with the identification of a number of toxic cyanobacterial metabolites. Cyanobacteria produce a range of toxins including peptide hepatotoxins (microcystins), ...;
