Special Issue “Freshwater Cyanobacterial Toxins: Developments in Monitoring, Identification, Impacts and Factors Influencing Production” – Toxins

Dear Colleagues,

Freshwater cyanobacteria are known to produce a suite of different chemicals that can be toxic to many organisms. These toxins can have adverse impacts on humans, animals, and even aquatic and terrestrial plants. Further information about cyanobacterial toxins is required to better understand and manage their risks in freshwater environments. This Special Issue aims to bring together papers that provide new information on the monitoring of cyanobacterial toxins and the identification of toxins in freshwater environments. Further, papers are invited that develop our knowledge of how cyanobacterial toxins impact humans, as well as different aquatic and terrestrial organisms. Papers that better develop our understanding of how toxin production by cyanobacteria is regulated are also welcomed.

Workshop “Cyanotoxins -toxicity, health and environmental impact”, Novi Sad, Serbia,13 -14 July, 2017.

Invitation from Co-Chair of the Organizing Committee, Dr. Jelica Simeunovic:

“On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I cordially invite you to attend the Workshop entitled “Cyanotoxins -toxicity, health and environmental impact”, to be held in Novi Sad, Serbia from 13 to 14 July, 2017.

The meeting will be organized in the framework of the SCOPES project as a contribution to further investigation of toxic cyanobacteria, cyanotoxins and their impacts on human, animal and environmental health.

The workshop promises to be an excellent opportunity to discuss the current progress in cyanotoxins research and to present results that can change our approach to resolving the problems of cyanotoxin occurrence in the environment, especially in freshwaters.

Hopefully, the workshop will promote active scientific exchange and communication between researchers and practitioners from Serbia and worldwide who will share with us the recent achievements  in cyanobacteria and cyanotoxin research.

In the attachment you will find the Announcement  with the necessary information and instructions for abstract submission, as well as the Registration form . If you plan to participate at the Workshop, please fill-in the registration form that will help us in organizing the meeting. Deadline for sending the registration form for participation is May 20th, 2017.”

With kind regards and looking forward to seeing you at the Workshop,
Co-Chair of the Organizing Committee
