[Australia] Blue-green algae, also known as cyanobacteria, are an ancient lineage of bacteria that occupy a vast variety of habitats, from Continue reading How can we use fluorescence and artificial intelligence to better control blue-green algal blooms?
[Russia] Chara algae are ancient plant organisms that are commonly found in freshwater reservoirs and occur, though more rarely, Continue reading Cytoplasmic streaming is involved in the transmission of signals within giant cells in Chara algae
[USA] The infamous algae bloom that devastated the Florida coast may soon become old, forgotten news thanks to the FlowCam®. Continue reading Algae instrumentation manufacturer to unveil FlowCam Cyano at NALMS lake management symposium
The US Coast Guard Research Development Center (USCG RDC) and the US Maritime Administration (MARAD) have launched a new study to assess the effectiveness of variable fluorescence-based instruments as compliance tools for ballast water checks.
Under this validation study, both USCG RDC and MARAD will conduct blind testing of field and lab samples at three different sites in the US during Continue reading USCG and MARAD conduct validation study on ballast water compliance tools
These days, boats get the scoop on algae blooms.
State researchers now pull water samples via a moving boat, rather than just by hand for later scrutiny, giving much quicker snapshots of algae “hot spots” in the Indian River Lagoon… Continue reading Instant analysis helps scientists spot lagoon-algae hotspots
