QScience.com | Exposure To Desert Cyanobacteria May Pose A Risk To Human Health
Revenge of the crust. Interesting emerging ideas about ubiquitous BMAA production in many cyanobacteria and its connection to Lou Gehrig's disease. Lots of gulf war vets may have been exposed when their vehicles disrupted crusts and allowed emission of dust containing cyanos. There's a life lesson here....
A networking resource devoted to biological soil crusts and the researchers who study them. We will provide a means for international scientists to communicate, share their research, share important news and announcements, ask questions and find collaborators. We will also provide a space for informal writing on research, opinion, and ideas (now seeking posters!).
