Join us for an overview on the direct and indirect impacts of climate change on aquatic ecosystem structure and health, cyanobacteria bloom dynamics and the implementation of modern molecular techniques in understanding the risk of toxin production in cyanobacteria populations and assessment of water quality.
This webinar will include a brief overview of the following themes discussing the impacts of climate change on:
1) Aquatic ecosystem structure,
2) Toxic cyanobacteria blooms, and
3) Water Quality Monitoring and Drinking Water Treatment.
Following the theme overviews, a panel discussion on key topics will be held to help audience members develop a comprehensive and interdisciplinary understanding on cyanobacteria populations in a changing climate. The session will conclude with an audience Q&A period.
Date: January 27th, 2021
