The cyanobacterial toxins of concern as potential human health hazards are those known to occur widely in drinking water sources, and therefore may be present in water for human use. The toxins include a diverse range of chemical compounds, with equally diverse toxic effects. These toxins are not limited to individual cyanobacterial species or genera, and all of the toxins of concern to human health are produced by multiple cyanobacterial species.
