From the cyanobacterium to the bald eagle—toxin transmission through the food chain.
A. hydrillicola, growing in colonies on aquatic vegetation, produces the neurotoxin AETX. Waterbirds, tadpoles, aquatic turtles, snails, and fish consume this contaminated vegetation and develop VM. Predators develop VM when they consume animals that have been grazing on A. hydrillicola–covered plants.
