Cells of alexandrium.
Research highlights include new findings on harmful algal blooms in the Nauset Marsh System, a major tourist and shellfish resource location. Don Anderson (Biology Department) and his group studied Alexandrium (cells shown above) cyst seedbeds in the system and identified three sites at which the Nauset blooms originate. Using molecular markers, they also determined that in the fall, the system has an input of harmful algal bloom cells from offshore, which may contribute to the seedbeds.
