This DST is based on results from several projects on toxic cyanobacteria funded by the Ministry for Education and Science (Germany) and the European Union (e.g. „PEPCY“, „NOSTOTOX“, „CYANOCOST“) and has been developed during these projects by Verena Niesel, Jutta Fastner, Wolfgang Wenzel and Ingrid Chorus from the Federal Environmental Agency, Berlin.
