Algae Management Books

  • Book Harmful Algae Blooms in Drinking Water: Removal of Cyanobacterial Cells and Toxins

    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) occurring in freshwater, and the associated toxins they produce, are dangerous to animals and humans. Mitigating the increasing presence of HABs presents a major challenge to water managers and drinking water utilities across the world. This book explores the current research on removal of HABs and toxins from drinking ...

  • Environmental Pollution Control Microbiology: A Fifty-Year Perspective

    Compiling knowledge gained through more than 50 years of experience in environmental engineering technology, this book illustrates the application of fundamental concepts in microbiology to provide a sound basis for the design and operation of various biological systems used in solving environmental challenges in the air, water, and soil. ...

  • Protocols in Lichenology

    As an intricate association between a fungus and one or more green algae or cyanobacteria, lichens are one of the most successful examples of symbiosis. These fascinating organisms survive extreme desiccation and temperatures. They are adapted to a great variety of habitats, from deserts to intertidal zones, from tropical rain forests to the peaks ...

  • Life and Death Of Coral Reefs

    Coral reefs have shaped the surface of our planet far more than has any other ecosystem. They are dynamic systems, producing limestone at the rate of 400-2,000 tons per hectare per year, and influencing the chemical balance of the world's oceans. Coral reefs have been around since before the prairies or other ecosystems of flowering plants ...

  • Management of Intentional and Accidental Water Pollution

    The book gives theoretical knowledge and practical approaches on the complex process of water management in case of pollution with chemical and biological hazards. Frameworks addressing scientific and management strategies are included. Critical for successful prevention and control actions of accidental and intentional water pollution is the ...

  • Eutrophication Management and Ecotoxicology

    This book aims to bridge the gap between ecotoxicology and limnology. The intended readers of the book are water managers, policy makers with a scientific background as well as researchers/advisors in the area of water management. The book provides an ecotoxicological perspective on lake management and describes eutrophication of shallow, ...

  • The Chemistry of Phosphate and Nitrogen Compounds in Sediments

    This book deals with the processes constituting the cycles of the phosphate and nitrogen compounds in sediment and the phosphate equilibria between the sediment and the overlying water. Sediment, to a large extent, controls the P- and N concentrations and thus primary production. In most waters, too high concentrations of these compounds cause ...

  • Ecology of Harmful Algae

    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 ...
