Detrimental Biological Effects of Phytoplankton Blooms Deserve Increased Attention

Part of the Coastal and Estuarine Studies book series (COASTAL, volume 35)


Phytoplankton bloom phenomena in the marine environment have several intrinsically interesting facets. The notoriety many people attach to them, however, has its basis in the detrimental biological effects some blooms have had on marine fauna and humans. The interest in this aspect appears to be justified since evidence is accumulating which suggests that so-called nuisance blooms and related problems have increased in frequency and intensity in recent years (Lancelot et al., 1987; Anderson, 1989; Smayda, 1989).
