After Hours Lecture - Harmful Algal Blooms
LocationOnline via Zoom
Access & Features
- Open to the public
Harmful algal blooms, or HABs, occur when algae in the water grow excessively and produce toxins and other harmful effects that impact the environment and people. Algal species capable of producing HABs have increased in abundance in the Chesapeake Bay and many other coastal areas during the last decade, causing concern among resource managers, industry members, health officials, and the public. Join us as Dr. Kim Reece, Professor of Marine Science at VIMS, provides a primer on HABs and discusses her team’s work to understand the impacts they have on the ecosystem.
