Research from Temperate to Polar Regions
This session will highlight challenges and advancements in the understanding, monitoring, and application of interdisciplinary freshwater HABs research from temperate to polar regions. We encourage abstracts that improve our understanding of these systems, combine different research approaches, explore spatial/temporal trends, and have application to policy or resource management.
IFHAB Evening Panel Session:
Researchers in the hot seat: challenges and lessons with applied cyanotoxin research, risk communication and stakeholder engagement
This session and panel discussion will highlight the challenges researchers face when communicating key scientific findings to advance public awareness/education and decision-making. Topics with a focus on how science/research is applied and communicated in the ‘real world including regional case studies, divergent perspectives, liability mitigation, science-policy-risk communication and setting realistic expectations ’.
