Seaweed represents a major component of marine ecosystems. It is used as food, fertiliser and as a resource for chemical constituents. This interactive multimedia DVD-ROM was compiled over a three year period and incorporates the expertise of almost 150 authorities from all over the world. The extensive information is organised in a number of categories covering cultivation, farming, utilisation, worldwide resources, socio-economics, recent developments in ecology, and applied phycology. The subjects are covered in detail and includes vivid examples ranging from food and cosmetics to medicine, with examples from major production centers worldwide and includes practical aspects of modern farming. The information is enriched by numerous high quality pictures and exclusive video footage. Extensive web reference links are provided to help locate additional information.

This unique electronic reference system is the first in this field and holds more information than could ever be published in a book. World Seaweed Resources will enthuse the user and provide insight and practical, easily accessible hands-on information. The user-friendly nature of this DVD-ROM makes it ideal for teaching or self-study. It can be used as a stand-alone resource or to complement text books. It should be available to marine biologists in general and to workers in the seaweed farming community, and should certainly be in the personal library of all phycologists, whether professional or student.
