NALMS Inland HAB Program

Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB) often consist of cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) impact lakes and reservoirs worldwide.  While a large body of research has focused on the ecology, monitoring, and management of cyanobacteria, this information is relatively diffuse and not readily available in one central location.  To address this problem, the North American Lake Management Society (NALMS) has developed this website that will help to serve as a clearinghouse of cyanobacterial related information and resources for water resource managers and state, federal, and university scientists. 

For more information about NALMS activities related to cyanobacteria see Graham et al. (LakeLine, Summer 2009, pp. 12-15).
