River Algae

There is no book dealing specifically with river algae, since algal taxonomy and ecology have been treated in general books on river ecosystems
The topics proposed in this book lack general reviews covering relevant topics by authors with recognized international expertise
The subject will be of interest to a large audience, including phycologists, limnologists, freshwater biologists, water quality managers and general readers
