Most of the volumes of the series Süßwasserflora von Mitteleuropa are written in German, including volumes 2/1 - 2/4 dealing with the Bacillariophyceae (diatoms). They enable the user to identify all diatom-species and provide him with the taxonomic and ecological information. Since the number of the known diatoms-taxa has increased considerably it is extremely important to distinguish the different species. This was until now restricted to the limnologists, biologists and geographers capable of understanding German. This additional volume 2/5 presents all the dichotomous keys from the Bacillariophyceae-volumes 2/1 - 2/4 in an English and French translation. The user can work through the key, identify the species and then – if necessary – gather the further information from the German volumes.
