Analysis of cyanobacterial mats for toxins
Entry ID: K081_2001_2002_NZ_3

Abstract: Mats of algae and cyanobacteria are often the dominant biomass of inland aquatic systems. A collection of samples of these mats were extensively sampled from the moraine ponds near Bratina Island in the 2000/01 and the 2002/03 season for analysis of cyanobacterial toxins.
