About this book

Kumanoa is a primarily subtropical freshwater red algal genus occurring in biomes in North America, South America, Asia, Australasia and Oceania. A few taxa also inhabit temperate regions of North America and Europe. This revision provides the most up-to-date information on all 35 recognized species of Kumanoa.

Kumanoa was recently established for species previously assigned to Batrachospermum sections Hybrida and Contorta. For each described species, the authors provide nomenclatural information, a detailed description and diagnosis, including distinguishing characteristics and distribution records (including the specimens examined for this book). Pertinent taxonomic, molecular and morphological data are reviewed and discussed. A dichotomous key and careful photographic documentation of key diagnostic features provide help in identifying these species.

This monograph is of relevance for anyone wishing to identify these organisms from any part of the world. The included key should be most helpful in identifying Kumanoa species and distinguishing them from others.
