    PESTANA, C. J., EDWARDS, C., PRABHU, R., ROBERTSON, P. K. J. and LAWTON, L. A., 2015. Photocatalytic degradation of eleven microcystin variants and nodularin by TiO2 coated glass microspheres. Journal of Hazardous Materials, Vol. 300, pp. 347-353.
    Microcystins and nodularin are toxic cyanobacterial secondary metabolites produced by cyanobacteria that pose a threat to human health in drinking water. Conventional water treatment methods often fail to remove these ...
  • Purification, detection and biological effects of cyanobacterial toxins. 

    McElhiney, Jacqueline (The Robert Gordon University School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 1999-05)
    The aesthetic beauty of a landscape is a very subjective issue: every person has their own opinions and their own idea of what beauty is. However, all people have a common evolutionary history, and, according to the Biophilia ...
  • Temperature effects explain continental scale distribution of cyanobacterial toxins. 

    Mantzouki, Evanthia; Ibelings, Bas; Fastner, Jutta; Lürling, Miquel; de Senerpont Domis, Lisette; Teurlincz, Sven; Chmura, Damian (MDPI https://doi.org/10.3390/toxins10040156, 2018-04-13)
    MANTZOUKI, E., IBELINGS, B., FASTNER, J., LÜRLING, M., DE SENERPONT DOMIS, L., TEURLINCX, S. and CHMURA, D. 2018. Temperature effects explain continental scale distribution of cyanobacterial toxins. Toxins [online], 10(4), article ID 156. Available from: https://doi.org/10.3390/toxins10040156
    Insight into how environmental change determines the production and distribution of cyanobacterial toxins is necessary for risk assessment. Management guidelines currently focus on hepatotoxins (microcystins). Increasing ...
  • Uptake and depuration of cyanotoxins in the common blue mussel Mytilus edulis. 

    Waack, Julia (Robert Gordon University School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2017-06-01)
    WAACK, J. 2017. Uptake and depuration of cyanotoxins in the common blue mussel Mytilus edulis. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.
    Cyanobacteria produce a variety of secondary metabolites which possess amongst others antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. Being primary producers they are also a vital component within the food web. However, ...
