The chemical diversity of marine and freshwater toxins grows at a high rate every year. This is important for the several implications derived: potential food safety warnings, analytical challenges and increased chemical richness for the scientific knowledge. Many of these compounds are potent drugs with therapeutic use as lead compounds, although in many cases their mechanism of action, hence their toxicology, is not understood. From an ecological point of view, cyanobacteria are present in freashwater and marine waters, and both marine toxins and freshwater toxins are showing a quick change in their geographical profiles due to climate change. These are many challenges for scientists which this issue will try to cover.
