About this book

Diatoms are an important and often dominant component of periphyton, and their contribution to primary production in aquatic systems has largely been underestimated. Apart from the qualitative and quantitative importance of diatoms in the periphyton, the study of diatoms has the added value that they are excellent environmental indicators, since they are present in almost all aquatic habitats and react with speed and sesitivity to environmental changes.
