Editorial Reviews


'... an excellent introduction and overview on the different groups of algae, their differences in morphology, physiology, life cycles, ecology and systematics. In addition, it is a valuable reference on the modern concepts in the study of algae. Thus, this book is of great value to students but also to scientists who want to grow and work with algae.' Journal of Plant Physiology

'... a welcome addition to the field of phycology and a very readable review of many aspects of this diverse discipline.' Bulletin of Marine Science

'I recommend this book as good value for money for marine biologists and ecologists.' J. A. Raven, Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology

'Phycology by Robert Edward Lee is an essential, detailed reference book of the current knowledge of algae. ... Beautifully executed line drawings, graphs and electronmicrographs make the readable text really enjoyable. ... [A] clearly arranged, well-written overview of the world of algae, essential for all phycologists, [and] strongly recommended for teachers and for their undergraduates.' Acta Botanica Hungarica

'Lee is one of very few contemporary phycologists who has the time, resources, patience, perseverance and, above all, the necessary breadth of knowledge of all things algal to undertake such a project and, if the number of editions that this Phycology text has seen since 1980 is taken as a performance indicator, he has been quite successful ... This book is an ideal companion to introductory phycology and limnology courses taught at undergraduate level. Because of the wealth of information that it contains it will retain its value as a reference even if a student has opted not to pursue a career in algal research.' Edinburgh Journal of Botany

Book Description

This fourth edition integrates information from nucleic acid sequencing studies with classic material on life histories, cytology, ecology and economic importance of the algae including detailed life-history drawings; the emphasis is on algae commonly covered in phycology courses, and encountered by students in marine and freshwater habitats.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Amanda on November 20, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
At least that was the feeling of this undergraduate. Has only rudimentary coverage of basics like photosynthesis and respiration, and is incredibly technical. I feel like it would make a great reference book for a more advanced student, but it's a bit intense for an introduction to the study of algae.

Format: Paperback
I consider this as an obligated textbook in any Phycology course around the world. I use for teaching and for learning many things about algae groups that I do not know.

I strongly recomend people to use this book.
