About this book

Translated by David Mann
Completely revised and updated edition of a highly acclaimed German textbook which was heralded for its clarity as well as breadth and depth of information. Essential for understanding the basic role of algae in the global ecosystem as their kaleidoscopic diversity, systematics and phylogeny are covered.

' ... such a comprehensive source of information on algal morphology, ultrastructure, cell reproductive events, algal evolution, etc. is desirable for every algal cell student ... Taking into account the informative and comprehensive value of the book it seems probably that the book will serve as an indispensable source of reference for many years to come.' V. Zachleder, Photosynthetica 'This important book contains a clear, modern introduction to the cytology, morphology and systematics of the algae, providing a wealth of information for all those studying or working with these organisms ... excellent and very clear figures.' W. F. Prud'Homme Van Reine, Blumea ' ... this is a fine textbook which can be highly recommended for advanced students and professionals alike.' Michael F. Turner, Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology
