Description: Key Message:The foremost textbook and reference for studying Phycology,Algae,Second Editionfeatures hundreds of new illustrations, a new chapter on terrestrial algae, and thorough updates that reflect new classification structures. With an emphasis on algae ecology and molecular biology, the authors focus on what students really want to know about algaewhy they are so diverse; how they are related; how to distinguish the major types; their roles in food webs; global biogeochemical cycling; the formation of harmful algae blooms; and how we utilize them. The text also provides a broad coverage of freshwater, marine, and terrestrial algae. Key Topics: Introduction to the Algae-Occurrence, Relationships, Nutrition, Definition, General Features, The Roles of Algae in Biochemistry, Algae in Biotic Associations, Technological Applications of Algae, Algal Diversity and Relationships-Taxonomy, Systematics, and Phylogeny, Cyanobacteria (Chloroxybacteria), Endosymbiosis and the Origin of Eukaryotic Algae-With a Focus on Glaucophytes, Chlorarachniophytes, and Apicomlexans, Euglenoids, Cryptomonads, Haptophytes, Dinoflagellates, Ochrophytes I-Introduction to the Ochrophytes and a focus on Diatoms, Ochrophytes II-Raphidophyceans, Chrysophyceans, Synurophyceans, and Eustigmatophyceans, Ochrophytes III-Pelagophyceans, Silicoflagellates, Pedinellids, and Related Forms, Ochrophytes IV-Chrysomeridaleans, Phaeothamniophyceans, Tribophyceans, and Phaeophyceans, Red Algae, Green Algae I-Introduction and Prasinophyceans, Green Algae II-Ulvophyceans, Green Algae III-Trebouxiophyceans, Green Algae IV-Chlorophyceans, Green Algae V-Charophyceans, Phytoplankton Ecology, Macroalgal and Periphyton Ecology Market:Intended for those interested in learning the basics of algae
