The Physiology of Microalgae covers the state-of-the-art of microalgae physiology and biochemistry (and the several –omics). It serves as a key reference work for those working with microalgae, whether in the lab, the field, or for commercial applications. It is aimed at new entrants into the field (i.e. PhD students) as well as experienced practitioners.
It has been over 40 years since the publication of a book on algal physiology. Apart from reviews and chapters no other comprehensive book on this topic has been published. Research on microalgae has expanded enormously since then, as has the commercial exploitation of microalgae. The Physiology of Microalgae thoroughly deals with the most critical physiological and biochemical processes governing algal growth and production.

"Each chapter contains very rich and useful information, including comprehensive illustrations and references. Each chapter is a chef d'oeuvre done by very well-known scientist(s) in their fields. The book, useful and needed both by PhD students and already experienced scientists, should be found/ accessible in every (significant) faculty, research institute or pilot plant dealing with microalgae!"
