Description

Production of toxins by marine and freshwater micro algae has been known for decades. However, toxic blooms have increased in frequency and distribution raising serious concerns regarding seafood and drinking water safety. This book compiles current evidence on the influence of climate change on the spreading of toxin producing species in aquatic systems. The chemistry and biology of toxin production is revised and an outlook on control and prevention of the toxin's impact on human and animal health is given.
