The proceedings of "Harmful Algal Blooms: The Encroaching Menace," a conference to organize a West Coast effort for research and monitoring harmful algal blooms, held January 1999 in Anchorage, Alaska. Harmful algal blooms (HAB) are a pervasive health and economic problem on the North American West Coast. Paralytic shellfish poisoning and domoic acid are the most prominent, with levels of domoic acid spreading northward along the coast into Alaska. Eleven contributions in the book describe HAB problems and solutions from California to Alaska, including biology and economics; funding for HAB research and monitoring; and regional efforts.
