About this book

Algae exhibit the greatest variety of cell motility phenomena in the living world. These range from gliding of filaments in the prokaryotic blue-green algae to chloroplast movements and cytoplasmic streaming which are most common in higher plants. In addition, cell movement by eukaryotic flagella is the characteristic motile behaviour of algal flagellates and most reproductive cells of algae. These motility responses are regulated by light and have attracted much attention from cell biologists and photobiologists interested in the interactions between light, intracellular signals, and the motile machinery. This work brings together information on a broad range of algal cell motility systems. Researchers have contributed in-depth reviews of the subject. The book should be of interest to researchers and advanced students in algal biology, marine ecology, cell biology and photobiology.
