Beginner Series

1.1 Tabs on HABs: Single-Celled Rebels

This is video 1 of 3 in the beginner Tabs on HABs video series introducing Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) and how scientists study them. This video answers the question: What are HABs and how do they affect our environment and economy? Also check out our intermediate video series that helps identify several genera of harmful algae under the light microscope, and our advanced video series on more sophisticated identification techniques of HABs species.

1.2 Tabs on HABs: Basic Sampling Techniques

This is video 2 of 3 in the beginner Tabs on HABs video series introducing Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) and how scientists study them. This video illustrates how scientists sample the water to collect HAB species for analysis. Also check out our intermediate video series that helps identify several genera of harmful algae under the light microscope, and our advanced video series on more sophisticated identification techniques of HABs species.

1.3 Tabs on HABs: Power of Observation

This is video 3 of 3 in the beginner Tabs on HABs video series introducing Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) and how scientists study them. This video shows how scientists begin to identify and analyze HABs using a light microscope and introduces advanced identification techniques.
