9780521193757: The Freshwater Algal Flora of the British Isles with DVD-ROM: An Identification Guide to Freshwater and Terrestrial Algae

Building on the success of the first edition and featuring contributions from leading experts in the field, this expanded and thoroughly revised second edition provides an indispensable guide to the freshwater and terrestrial algae of the British Isles. It is an up-to-date account of and identification tool for more than 2400 algal species (excluding diatoms), highlighting their wider distribution around the world. Detailed descriptions are fully illustrated with clear line drawings and photographs including 190 full-page plates, eight of which are full colour. In addition, user-friendly keys enable the accurate identification of specimens to the level of genus and species. This edition includes expanded information on ecology and the implications of recent molecular research, along with coverage of 200 extra species. The accompanying DVD provides an updated colour photo catalogue, highly illustrated articles and video clips, making this the comprehensive reference tool for both researchers and professionals in the field.

Recensione:

'… the reference book of choice in Europe for identification of algae other than diatoms … an authoritative update of the first [edition] … with many new advances incorporated, more contributors and an interesting and eclectic DVD … This new flora will retain its predecessor's preeminence, with every section updated and those on green algae, especially desmids, and on Cyanobacteria, extensively revised. The figures are clear and photographs are provided, on the DVD, of many species … a work of great credit to its editors and authors.' Brian Moss, Professor Emeritus, University of Liverpool

'For a start, it looks good. Quality production, beautiful cover, lots of pictures, coloured and line drawings. The introductory chapters of the book are a breath of fresh air, with field methods and diagrams of home-made apparatus for collecting and concentrating algae. Lab methods for observing, counting and preserving samples are all very useful. I'm impressed by the practicality of the text. This book is a great deal better (hugely better) than anything else I've been trying to use for general algal determination. The Freshwater Algal Flora of the British Isles will be sitting right beside my microscope.' Michelle T. Casanova, Australasian Systematic Botany Society Newsletter

'An invaluable reference for freshwater workers worldwide, and an important acquisition for all professional and academic institutions with programs covering any aspect of freshwater biology. Highly recommended.' C. W. Schneider, Choice
