Asssessment of cyanobacteria and associated toxins in west Michigan lakes

Project Objectives:  - Determine the spatial and temporal variability of cyanobacteria   and their toxins in 7 drowned river mouth lakes  - Determine if the waters meet WHO (World Health Organization)  guidelines for microcystin LR, chlorophyll a, and cyanobacteria   density  - Evaluate HPLC/MS, PPIA, and ELISA as analytical methods    (Lake Michigan); (cyanobacteria); (Michigan); (eutrophication);   (HAB's); (HABs); (HAB); (harmful algal blooms); (harmful algal   bloom); (microcystin); (microcystis); (blue-green algae);   (microcystin LR); (toxins); (toxin); (cladophora); (plankton)
