Presentation Topic

I would like to do my presentation on the dinoflagellate Pfiesteria. I would be exploring the harmful effects it has on marine ecosystems. It has been called a "fish killer" and also can affect human health. Some references I may use are:

Harmful Algal Blooms

Neural Behavior in Rats

Pfisteria Toxin and Learning Performance

  1. Patrick is already doing red tides, so you will want to make sure that you do not cover the same introductory material as him. You will need to focus more on this particular genus.
