The workshop brought together researchers, managers, and policy makers involved in public health, water supply and water resources who deal with cyanobacteria and their consequences.
At the workshop we discussed the latest cyanobacterial research and its practical application.
This National Cyanobacterial Workshop was hosted by the Australian Rivers Institute, Griffith University, Queensland.
Organisation of the workshop was led by Dr Michele Burford, Executive Deputy Director and Professor at the Australian Rivers Institute and Dr Philip Orr.
