Purpose

The current study goal was to improve understanding of the factors (beach characteristics, environmental factors and lake hydrodynamics) related to C. botulinum type E occurrence by analysis of samples collected from Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore beaches. The objectives of this study were to 1) identify the temporal and spatial variability of C. botulinum type E in onshore Cladophora, water and sediment samples from multiple SLBE beaches, and 2) determine the relationships between environmental data and detection of the bontE gene at different sampling sites, in order to evaluate the potential pathways of C. botulinum to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park.
