Editorial Reviews

"This is an outstanding volume that should be a 'must-see' reference for all scientists and environmental professionals who are interested in cyanobacterial ecology and water quality management." (Val H. Smith, University of Kansas, USA)"The book is a welcome addition to the body of international studies on harmful cyanobacteria and demonstrates their widespread occurrence and importance as agents of water-based disease. The book will have a general appeal but especially for those who have to deal with issues of toxic cyanobacteria and are interested in a better understanding of the topic. It will also be appreciated by the more serious researcher wishing to keep up with this subject in order to develop new ideas and directions for their own research into Harmful Cyanobacteria." (Wayne Carmichael, Wright State University, Ohio, USA)
