About this book

Provides thorough coverage of the biology, ecology and interaction with the environment of cultured microalgal species, details of the culture systems used and information about the current and potential future uses of microalgae.

"[...] well organised , with clear and illustrative figures [...] I recommend it to academic staff and researchers at universities and institutes with interests in microalgal culture and aquaculture. The book may also be of interest to certain sectors of the aquaculture industry. International Aquaculture "I would recommend this as a textbook for undergraduates and postgraduates interested in algal biotechnology."
