History of Cyanosite including the first on-line version of Cyanosite from 1995 and archival pages


Great website on toxic cyanobacterial blooms; loaded with practical information for the general public.

Cyanosite was awarded a two-year grant from the The Waksman Foundation for Microbiology to support an undergraduate stipend. The work-study student helped to maintain CyBib and weblinks while adding useful information to the site. We are most appreciative of this opportunity for substantial practical improvement of the site.


Cyanosite Awards
