Overgrowth of algae holds harmful consequences for people, plants, and animal life all across Lake Erie, warns a study published by the National Academy of Sciences.

The study, one of the most comprehensive reports released on the issue, blames a confluence of farm runoff, weather changes, and an invasive new plankton-eating species. According to Anna Michalak, the study’s co-author and a researcher at the Carnegie Institution for Science at Stanford University, the situation will only grow worse, absent serious action on the part of the lake community.
