Team HABs

We are a research team working on harmful/toxic bloom-forming algae.

Our research interest lies in understanding how environmental and/or climate changes increasingly caused by human activities are causing change and/or altering aquatic communities.

Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs)

Micro-algae known as phytoplankton occurring in great abundance is a feature often found in marine and freshwater habitats. A bloom can produce harmful impacts on marine ecosystems. The detrimental events caused by algae are termed as “harmful algal blooms” (HABs). Algae are considered harmful because of their consequences due to biotoxins, anoxia and physical damages.
