  • Estimated annual economic impacts from harmful algal blooms (HABs) in the United States 

    Anderson, Donald M.; Hoagland, Porter; Kaoru, Yoshi; White, Alan W. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-09)
    Blooms of toxic or harmful microalgae, commonly called "red tides," represent a significant and expanding threat to human health and fisheries resources throughout the United States and the world. Ecological, aesthetic, ...
  • Georges Bank : a leaky incubator of Alexandrium fundyense blooms 

    McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Townsend, David W.; Keafer, Bruce A.; Thomas, M. A.; Anderson, Donald M. (2012-09-21)
    A series of oceanographic surveys on Georges Bank document variability of populations of the toxic dinoflagellate Alexandrium fundyense on time scales ranging from synoptic to seasonal to interannual. Blooms of A. fundyense ...
  • Harmful algal blooms and eutrophication : examining linkages from selected coastal regions of the United States 

    Anderson, Donald M.; Burkholder, JoAnn M.; Cochlan, William P.; Glibert, Patricia M.; Gobler, Christopher J.; Heil, Cynthia A.; Kudela, Raphael M.; Parsons, Michael L.; Rensel, J. E. Jack; Townsend, David W.; Trainer, Vera L.; Vargo, Gabriel A. (2008-07-28)
    Coastal waters of the United States (U.S.) are subject to many of the major harmful algal bloom (HAB) poisoning syndromes and impacts. These include paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP), neurotoxic shellfish poisoning ...
  • Interannual variability of Alexandrium fundyense abundance and shellfish toxicity in the Gulf of Maine 

    McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Anderson, Donald M.; Solow, Andrew R.; Townsend, David W. (2005-05-03)
    Six years of oceanographic surveys of Alexandrium fundyense concentrations in the Gulf of Maine are combined with shellfish toxicity records from coastal monitoring stations to assess covariations of these quantities on ...
  • Marine biotoxins and harmful algae : a national plan 

    Anderson, Donald M.; Galloway, Sylvia B.; Joseph, Jeanne D. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-01)
    Marine biotoxins and harmful algae represent a significant and expanding threat to human health and fisheries resources throughout the U.S. This problem takes many forms, ranging from massive "red tides" or blooms of cells ...
  • Mechanisms regulating large-scale seasonal fluctuations in Alexandrium fundyense populations in the Gulf of Maine : results from a physical–biological model 

    McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Anderson, Donald M.; Lynch, Daniel R.; Townsend, David W. (2005-04-27)
    Observations of Alexandrium fundyense in the Gulf of Maine indicate several salient characteristics of the vegetative cell distributions: patterns of abundance are gulf-wide in geographic scope; their main features occur ...
  • A red tide of Alexandrium fundyense in the Gulf of Maine 

    McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Brosnahan, Michael L.; Couture, Darcie A.; He, Ruoying; Keafer, Bruce A.; Manning, James P.; Martin, Jennifer L.; Pilskaln, Cynthia H.; Townsend, David W.; Anderson, Donald M. (2013-04-15)
    In early July 2009, an unusually high concentration of the toxic dinoflagellate Alexandrium fundyense occurred in the western Gulf of Maine, causing surface waters to appear reddish brown to the human eye. The discolored ...
