Introduction to Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) in Freshwater Systems
Clemson Extension Program Team
Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) are detrimental to the ecosystem through their biomass and toxin production. HABs monitoring is complicated by existence of diverse species of algae causing blooms and their varying enabling conditions. This article gives an overview of the causes and effects of HABs in South Carolina as well as detection methods adopted by researchers and monitoring approaches set aside by South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.
