Algae are an important component of aquatic benthic eco-systems because they reflect the health of their environment through their density, abundance, and diversity. This comprehensive and authoritative text has been prepared by leading authorities in the field and includes comprehensive treatment of the functions of benthic algae as well as the factors that affect these important aquatic organisms. As concern over environmental health escalates, the keystone and pivotal role played by algae is becoming more apparent. This volume in theAquatic Ecology Seriesrepresents an important compilation of the latest research on the crucial niche occupied by algae in aquatic ecosystems.
Algal Ecologyis an essential reference for anyone interested in understanding and managing freshwater ecosystems.

Format: Hardcover
I have used this book so much during my MSc Project on Algal Communities, that it became my personal bible for all aspects of benthic algal ecology. It's a very comprehensive book, that is both interesting and relevant right from the start till the very end. All topics are well designed and illustrated and all in all it is very nice to read - not only for Ecologists like me.

Format: Hardcover
I used that book so much during the writing up of my MSc thesis that it became my personal bible for all periphyton related issues. I've never seen so much excelent and relevant information on this topic in just one book. The figures are well placed, and all in all it's very nice to read (not only for Algal Ecologists like me).
