Algal Bloom Control Books

  • MT-PCR – A rapid, reliable and effective tool for assessing toxic ‘algal’ blooms in Victorian water supplies: aiding protection and preservation

    This project addressed a need for a sensitive, accurate and reliable testing method to aid assessment of the toxicity of algal blooms and assist water management. Increasingly, diagnostic dilemmas are resolved through the use of DNA-based technologies which often provide high sensitivity and specificity and are efficient both in terms of costs and ...

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

    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 ...

  • Manual on Harmful Marine Microalgae

    This volume is a source book of protocols for studying, monitoring and managing harmful marine microalgae. Proliferation of microalgae in marine, brackish or fresh waters can cause the destruction of huge numbers of fish, contaminate seafood with toxins and alter ecosystems.About 300 species of microalgae are reported to form mass occurrences, ...

  • Coastal Shellfish - A Sustainable Resource

    Coastal populations of shellfish have been exploited by humans for millennia as an easily accessible source of fresh protein. Unfortunately, because the intertidal zone and the shallow coastal margins are so intertwined with man's activities, these shellfish stocks are now severely threatened around the world. Issues such as anthropogenic ...

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

    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 ...

  • Limnology and Oceanography

    Limnology and Oceanography(L&O; print ISSN 0024-3590, online ISSN 1939-5590) publishes original research articles, reviews, and comments about all aspects of limnology and oceanography. The journal's unifying theme is the understanding of aquatic systems. Submissions are judged on their originality and intellectual contribution to the fields ...

  • 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 ...

  • Algal Toxins: Nature, Occurrence, Effect and Detection

    This volume contains the lectures and seminars given at the NATO Advanced Study Institute on “Sensor Systems for Biological Threats: The Algal Toxins Case”, held in Pisa, Italy in October, 2007. This ASI offered updated information on how far the research on algal toxins has gone in the exploration of structures, biosynthesis and regulation of ...
