"Featuring hundreds of new illustrations, a new chapter (23) on terrestrial algae, and through classification updates, Algae, Second Edition is the indispensable guide for studying algae. With an emphasis on algae ecology and molecular biology, the authors focus on what readers really want to know about algae - why they are so diverse; how they are related; how to distinguish the major types; their roles in food webs; how we utilize them, and more. This text also provides broad coverage of freshwater, marine, and terrestrial algae."--Jacket.

This is a complete, systematic treatment of the marine algae (seaweeds) flora of California. The 726 species treated are each illustrated by a detailed line drawing made from an actual specimen. The two authors have drawn upon their phycological research to offer a definitive representation of benthic marine algae from the Californian coast. The floristic treatment in this first paperback edition should aid accurate and speedy identification of flora due to the improved keys, descriptions, illustrations and more detailed coverage of taxa, and should enhance the reader's knowledge of Californian macro-algae.

The varied and often beautiful forms of freshwater algae have long held a fascination for naturalists and professional scientists alike, particularly those involved in monitoring and managing the freshwater environment. This Flora provides the first modern account and identification guide to more than 2200 species of freshwater algae found in the British Isles (excluding diatoms), the majority of which also have a world-wide distribution. Non-technical descriptions are supported by clear line illustrations or photographs that emphasise the features significant for identification, most of which can be seen with a simple light microscope. In addition, user-friendly keys enable the accurate identification of specimens to the level of genus or species. Notes are included on ecology, world distribution and any taxonomic problems or identification difficulties. The accompanying CD-ROM photo catalogue of more than 900 spectacular colour images of freshwater algae and their habitats provides a valuable additional reference source and identification tool.
