About this book

This edited volume brings together papers on recent advances in algal research, specifically dealing with taxonomy, ecology, and research applications.


Contents

- Professor's Jadwiga Sieminska's 65 years of scientific work
- Cryptomonad taxonomy in the 21st century: the first two hundred years

Taxonomy
- Chalarodora azurea Pascher 1929 - a rare glaucophyte found in the peat-bog Klin (Orava, Northern Slovakia)
- Achnanthidium sieminskae, a new diatom species from the Kerguelen Archipelago (Austral Islands)
- Current advances in the biology of marine araphid diatoms
- Diatom diversity of the lower part of the Sljudjanka river draining the Chamar-Daban Mountains (southern part of the Lake Baikal catchment, Siberia, Russia)
- Diversity of diatom communities in the Wislok River (SE Poland)
- Diversity of diatoms (Bacillariophyceae) in the Mleczka River, Morwawa River and Rozanka stream (tributaries of the Wislok River, SE Poland), with particular reference to threatened species
- Morphological variability of raphidophycean algae in the lakes of Lithuania
- Trachelomonas diversity in a forest pond of Poleski National Park (E Poland)
- Euglenophytes from a fishpond in the Republic of Cameroon (West-Central Africa)
- Microfossils related to green algae (Chlorophyta) in Upper-Miocene deposits from the Jozefina borehole, Krakow-Silesia Upland, Poland

Ecology
- Influence of secondary metabolites from cyanobacteria on plant growth and development
- Assessment of trophic state of four lakes in the Suwalki Landscape Park (NE Poland) based on the summer phyto- and zooplankton in comparison with some physicochemical parameters
- Seasonal changes of phytoplankton in abandoned forest peat-pits
- Winter algae communities in the lakes and river ecosystems of the Republic of Karelia, North Russia

Applications
- Strategies for high-throughput microscopy in algal research
- Nautococcus mamillatus Korshikov (Chlorophyta, Chlorococcales) and Kremastochrysis ocellata Pascher (Chrysophyta, Ochromonadales) from set-aside land and winter wheat fields
- Phytoplankton assemblages in fishponds fed with treated wastewater
- Problem of protection of the Chara-dominated lakes from the eastern part of the Gnieznienskie Lakeland (western Poland) in the conditions of disturbed water regime
