Harmful algal blooms (HABs) cause significant economic and ecological damage worldwide. Despite considerable efforts, a comprehensive understanding of the factors that promote these blooms has been lacking, because the biochemical pathways that facilitate their dominance relative to other phytoplankton within specific environments have not been identified.(More)
The eutrophication of waterways worldwide is an ongoing problem commonly tied to anthropogenic over-enrichment of growth limiting nutrients (Schindler and Vallentyne, 2008; Vollenweider and Kerekes, 1982). Concurrent with this process, increases in both the frequency and duration of toxic cyanobacter-ial blooms have been documented on a global scale(More)
