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 massive fish kills, contaminate seafood with toxins and alter ecosystems in ways humans perceive as harmful. About 300 species of microalgae are reported to form mass occurrences, so-called 'blooms', and nearly one-fourth of these species are known to produce toxins.This manual covers the fields of harmful algal sampling, identification, culturing, toxin analysis, toxicology and management.This volume is a source book of protocols for studying, monitoring and managing harmful marine microalgae.
