Biological control of cyanobacteria: principles and possibilities

  title={Biological control of cyanobacteria: principles and possibilities},
  author={Dr. D. C. Sigee and Randy Glenn and Mark J. Andrews and Edward Bellinger and Ronald Derek Butler and H.A.S. Epton and Robert Hendry},
A range of naturally occurring organisms are available for the biological control of cyanobacteria: including viruses, bacteria, fungi, actinomycetes and protozoa. Development of these organisms as biological control agents involves isolation from environmental samples, characterisation of anti-cyanobacterial activity, microcosm and large-scale field experiments and final development of a biological control lake management strategy. Two groups of antagonist are considered in detail… CONTINUE READING
