T4 - Ecology - harmful algae and global change Over the last few decades, an increase in frequency and intensity of harmful algal blooms as well as changes in the biogeography and in the temporal dynamics of species and functional groups have been associated to ecosystem variations of both natural and antropogenic origins. A single-source reference on the biology of algae, Algae: Anatomy, Biochemistry, and Biotechnology, Second Edition examines the most important taxa and structures for freshwater, marine, and terrestrial forms of algae. Its comprehensive coverage goes from algae's historical role through its taxonomy and ecology to its natural product possibilities.
What are Harmful Algae & Red Tides? Marine and fresh waters teem with life, much of it microscopic, and most of it harmless. He uses techniques that span isotope geochemistry, next generation DNA sequencing, and satellite tagging to study the ecology of a wide variety of ocean species. His most recent book, The Shark Handbook, is a must. Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are a major issue in marine, brackish, and freshwater systems worldwide (Hallegraeff, ).Algal blooms are not a new phenomenon and occur naturally in fertile regions (such as the North American prairies), with historical accounts of these outbreaks dating back at least two millennia (Carmichael, ).However, with the increasing Cited by:
This chapter considers food web and ecosystemlevel impacts of major groups of harmful algae in U.S. and nearby waters. Harmful algal blooms (HAB) cause a “vast array” of food web effects across multiple trophic levels. The chapter defines food web impacts as effects on organisms from one or more trophic by: 4. The term "algal bloom" is defined inconsistently depending on the scientific field and can range between a "minibloom" of harmless algae to a large, harmful bloom event. Since 'algae' is a broad term including organisms of widely varying sizes, growth rates, and nutrient requirements, there is no officially recognized threshold level as to what is defined as a bloom.

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. In summary, this is a book on harmful algae that a scientist - an ecologist - can read for pleasure and intellectual stimulation.
It is a refreshing antidote to descriptive or alarmist approaches that sometimes seem to dominate the world of harmful algal research." (Gary H. Wikfors, Harmful Algae,doi: /).
This volume is a comprehensive synthesis of the latest research achievements concerning harmful algae (HA) ecology. International experts provide an in-depth analysis of HA topics including: global distribution, ecology of major HA groups, ecology and physiology of HA, HA and the food web, studying and mitigating HA, the human impact on HA and.

Blooms of toxic or harmful microalgae, commonly called "red tides", represent a significant and expanding threat to human health and fisheries resources throughout the world.
The impacts of these "harmful algal blooms" range from illness and death of human consumers of shellfish or fish that have accumulated algal toxins to ecosystem alteration and mortalities of marine mammals.
