Saint Albans Vermont based author, artist and aquatic biologist, Corrina Parnapy has released a new book compiled from over a decade of scientific research within the Adirondacks and Vermont, and articles she’s had published regionally and nationally, all focused on the connection between water quality and algae. From road salt, acid rain, invasive species, sewage waste, fertilizers, to lawn care practices; all have a connection and impact on algae populations.
Algal Connections; Water Quality Connections to Algae and Guide to Common Algae of the Northeast will allow students, professionals, municipal staff and anyone interested in water quality to understand the connection between water quality and algae and have a useful guide to help identify common forms of algae.
With the current increase in harmful algal blooms within the Northeast, closing beaches and causing health risks, it is important to understand what has a connection to algae and what we can do. To learn more about Algal Connections and to order your copy, please visit: https://mailchi.mp/
