Webinar: Exploration of HABs and Invasive Mussel Interactions

January 24, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

The webinar focuses on the theories of interactions between Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) and invasive mussels, and the possible environmental influences these interactions may have. While nutrient loading is widely accepted as the primary driver behind HABs, recent research has indicated that secondary interactions and relationships may exist between HABs and invasive mussels. This joint webinar was hosted by the Harmful Algal Blooms Collaboratory and the Invasive Mussel Collaborative.
