Reviews the state-of-the-science and assesses the impact of molecular tools on the taxonomy of algal groups.

Illustrating contrasting viewpoints, the book highlights contemporary perspectives on algal evolution and the concept of classification, addresses systematics and taxonomy for virtually all algal groups ranging from microalgae to ultraplankton, explores the impact of genomics on algal systematics, and concludes with a discussion of future directions for research.
