Title: Summary report on blue-green algae toxin analysis, Toxicity Assessment and reporting to the Environment Agency, 1998
Author: G.A. Codd
Document Type: Monograph
A Technical Service has been provided by the Department of Biological Sciences, University of Dundee for the Environment Agency since 1995, to examine the toxicity of environmental samples containing blue-green algae (cyanobacteria). The establishment of this service followed an annual series of investigations performed by the University of Dundee, from September 1989, until 1995 for the National Rivers Authority into blue-green algal bloom toxicity and associated problems. The 1998 data therefore complete a decade of such investigations by this laboratory, with NRA, and now Environment Agency colleagues throughout England and Wales. This report is structured in the same style as that of the preceding 3-year Summary Report (1995-1997; Codd, 1998) to enable comparisons to be made since the beginning of the present Technical Service agreement.
