Publisher Comments:

This second edition of Phycology, like the first, is designed to serve both as a textbook for a one-semester course in the study of algae and also as a basic reference on modern concepts in this area of research. The second edition divides the algae into four natural groups: procaryotic, red and green, euglenoids and dinoflagellates, and cryptophytes, yellow-brown and brown algae. Each chapter includes coverage of the cytology, morphology, physiology, life cycles, ecology, systematics, and in some cases the economic utility of the algal groups, all presented in a manner that can be understood by readers with a basic course in biology. Biochemical and ultrastructural investigations that have shaped recent concepts in phycology are emphasised, and particular attention is given to the algae that are commonly found in freshwater and marine habitats and are most likely to be encountered by students in the field. This updated and expanded integration of classical and modern phycological knowledge will be a valuable guide and reference to phycologists from the college sophomore to the senior research level.
