About this book

The second of a series of books covering the large, well-defined group of fresh water and essentially unicellular plants, belonging to the green algae. This volume describes all the Saccoderm and some of the Placoderm desmids (including Micrasterias), a total of 218 taxa. There are keys for identifying the genera and species, an annotated list of habitats, some ecological comments, a large number of literature references, and seven ecological data tables. The preface includes an account of the morphology of the desmid cell (with text figures), and a brief history of freshwater phycology in New Zealand.
