IOC-UNESCO Taxonomic Reference List of Harmful Micro Algae

url: http://www.marinespecies.org/hab/

The IOC-UNESCO Taxonomic Reference List of Harmful Micro Algae provides a catalogue of the world's harmful micro algal species. The list promotes stability in harmful micro algal nomenclature, acts as a tool for higher taxonomic revisions and regional monographs, and provides a base link for other online databases that use harmful micro algal nomenclature. An editorial team provides sufficient expert knowledge for maintaining the list. The list contains both species producing toxins and species that cause harm due to biomass, mucus or morphology (spines, etc.).
