Summary

  • The varied and often beautiful forms of freshwater algae have long held a fascination for naturalists and professional scientists alike, particularly those involved in monitoring and managing the freshwater environment. This Flora provides the first modern account and identification guide to more than 2200 species of freshwater algae found in the British Isles (excluding diatoms), the majority of which also have a world-wide distribution. Non-technical descriptions are supported by clear line illustrations or photographs that emphasise the features significant for identification, most of which can be seen with a simple light microscope. In addition, user-friendly keys enable the accurate identification of specimens to the level of genus or species. Notes are included on ecology, world distribution and any taxonomic problems or identification difficulties. The accompanying CD-ROM photo catalogue of more than 900 spectacular colour images of freshwater algae and their habitats provides a valuable additional reference source and identification tool
