FLMS Virtual Workshop: Algal Identification in the Environment

Part 1: Workshop Description: This workshop is designed as an introduction to the general groups of freshwater algae, their ecology and diversity. We will review key features distinguishing the major algal groups: cyanobacteria, chlorophytes, diatoms, dinoflagellates, red algae, euglenophytes, etc. and spend some time looking at specimens under the scope. Part 2:  Workshop Description: This workshop has a special focus on harmful and nuisance algae (focusing on cyanobacteria) in freshwater systems. We will dive into the ecology of both planktonic and benthic members of this group, while identifying major problematic taxa (genera and species). ...

Cyanobacteria Updates

In the October/November issue of this newsletter we announced new features on the NALMS Inland HABs Program Webpage, including an interactive Story Map featuring cyanobacteria resources. These resources are maintained by Shane Bradt and Angela Shambaugh, co-chairs of our HABs Committee. Angela Shambaugh is also co-leader of a study focused on harmful cyanobacteria blooms by a national team sponsored by the Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC). Angela reports, “The final product will include sections on nutrient management, monitoring, in-lake management approaches, and communication strategies. Team membership is open now and NALMS ...
