Harmful algal blooms of phytoplankton and macroalgae include toxic and nuisance species. The increased intensity, magnitude and geographic extent of these blooms in recent decades has coincided with increased alteration of the biosphere, including nutrient over-enrichment and warming aquatic ecosystems.
