HI all

In response to the request for information about the Broward County cyanobacterial blooms, here is a list of recent publications on Florida cyanobacteria research from Valerie Paul's lab including those from her recent post-docs. Dr. Paul also has many publications (not listed here) on cyanobacteria from Guam and on novel natural products isolated from cyanobacteria. Cheers, Raphael
