SS04 Cyanobacterial patterns and processes across scales: implications for water resource management in a changing climate

Global climate change and anthropogenic impacts have negatively affected water availability and quality, including the promotion of algal blooms. Cyanobacteria, the primary taxa responsible for freshwater algal blooms, pose serious and escalating threats to water quality and animal and human health. Thus, there is a clear and immediate need to utilize data from large-scale investigations across time and geographical boundaries to forecast future phytoplankton dynamics, including toxic cyanobacterial species, and manage our valuable water resources. This session will include observational, experimental, and theoretical research studies that broadly range in time and space to elucidate the biogeochemical, ecological, molecular, and climatic factors mediating cyanobacterial dominance in a changing climate. The management implications of each study will be emphasized.
