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). ...

2019 Summer LakeLine issue on Harmful Algal Blooms

Every other year, the summer issue of NALMS LakeLine focuses on what is currently going on in terms of cyanobacteria research, technologies, and advisories. It seems like HABs are occurring at an ever-increasing frequency, with Lake Erie’s large and long-lived bloom well-publicized in the media in recent years, and fears lingering of another such epic bloom. Topics in the 2019 summer issue include the detection of cyanobacteria with satellites, a well-developed monitoring program on Lake Champlain, and the importance of studying benthic cyanobacteria.

Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) [VIDEO]

With a special focus on Lake Erie, this Harmful Algal Blooms video covers the basics of HABs, including the causes, potential dangers, and sampling approaches.

Student Video Series: “Harmful Algal Blooms”

NALMS is seeking student-produced videos of "Harmful Algal Blooms" for inclusion in the video series hosted on the NALMS YouTube channel and website. In addition to the basic requirements in the Video Evaluation Rubric, this video should cover: General explanation of a HAB and relevant thresholds for human health (e.g., World Health Organization thresholds for cell and toxin concentrations) General knowledge of conditions in which HABs occur Research needs regarding HABs Explain what the public should know about HABs Explain the temporal and spatial dynamics of HAB occurrences Tools and guidance for safe HAB sampling for ...
