This is the second edition of Freshwater Algae; thepopular guide to temperate freshwater algae. This book uniquelycombines practical information on sampling and experimentaltechniques with an explanation of basic algal taxonomy plus a keyto identify the more frequently-occurring organisms.  Fullyrevised,  it describes major bioindicator species in relationto key environmental parameters and their implications for aquaticmanagement.

This second edition includes:

the same clear writing style as the first edition to provide aneasily accessible source of information on algae within standingand flowing waters, and the problems they may cause

the identification of 250 algae using a key based on readilyobservable morphological features that can be readily observedunder a conventional light microscope

up-to-date information on the molecular determination of taxonomicstatus, analytical microtechniques and the potential role ofcomputer analysis in algal biology

upgrades to numerous line drawings to include more detail and extraspecies information, full colour photographs of live algae –including many new images from the USA and China

Bridging the gap between simple identification texts and highlyspecialised research volumes, this book is
used both as a comprehensive introduction to the subject and as alaboratory manual. The new edition will be invaluable to aquaticbiologists for algal identification, and for all practitioners andresearchers working within aquatic microbiology in industry andacademia.
