About this book

Published in a modern, user-friendly format this fully revised and updated edition of The Handbook of Protoctista (1990) is the resource for those interested in the biology, diversity and evolution of eukaryotic microorganisms and their descendants, exclusive of animals, plants and fungi. With chapters written by leading researchers in the field, the content reflects the present state of knowledge of the cell and genome biology, evolutionary relationships and ecological/medical/economic importance each major group of protists, organized according to current protist systematics as informed by molecular phylogenetics and genomics.

He is currently an Editorial Board Member for Current Biology, Eukaryotic Cell, BMC Biology, Environmental Microbiology, and Protist Genomics. Dr. Archibald's research is focused on the diversity of protists and their organelles. He is the author of more than 100 scientific publications, and author of One Plus One Equals One: Symbiosis and the Evolution of Complex Life (Oxford University Press, 2014).

Alastair Simpson is a Professor in the Department of Biology at Dalhousie University, Canada, and a Senior Fellow of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research. He is the chair of the Systematics and Program Committees of the International Society of Protistologists (ISoP), and a previous winner of ISoP's Hutner Prize for research excellence. He has served as an Associate Editor of the Journal of Eukaryotic Microbiology for 10 years. Dr Simpson has authored >100 scientific publications on the biodiversity, evolutionary history, cell structure and molecular evolution of eukaryotic microbes, with a particular emphasis on free-living protozoa.
