About this book

Phycology is the study of algae, the primary photosynthetic organisms in freshwater and marine food chains. Since the publication of the first edition in 1981, this textbook has established itself as a classic resource on this subject. Aimed at upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in phycology, limnology and biological oceanography, this fifth edition maintains the format of previous editions, whilst incorporating the recent developments in the field such as: the potential and challenges of producing algae biofuel; the proliferation of algal toxins; and the development of new molecular tools and technologies on ancestry, phylogeny, and taxonomy of algae.

Media reviews

' ! a welcome addition to the field of phycology and a very readable review of many aspects of this diverse discipline.' Bulletin of Marine Science ' ! an outstanding introductory text'. BioScience ' ! an excellent introduction to general phycology'. Choice 'I recommend this book as good value for money for marine biologists and ecologists.' J. A. Raven, Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology ' ! an excellent introduction and overview on the different groups of algae, their differences in morphology, physiology, life cycles, ecology and systematics. In addition, it is a valuable reference on the modern concepts in the study of algae. Thus, this book is of great value to students but also to scientists who want to grow and work with algae.'
