Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"An essential reference book for anyone interested in phytoplankton."
—Joerg-Henner Lotze in NORTHEASTERN NATURALIST (2001)
"The methodology for cultivation and microscopy specific to each group will be useful for all readers. ...this book is highly recommended for faculty, professionals, and all upper-division undergraduate and graduate students."
—CHOICE
"The editing of the volume is generally excellent... Identifying Marine Phytoplankton is absolutely necessary for anyone who works with phyto- or zooplankton."
—AMERICAN GEOPHYSICAL UNION
"This weighty tome is a paperback version of the combined hardbacks Marine Phytoplankton: A Guide to Naked Flagellates and Coccolithophorids (1993) and Identifying Marine Diatoms and Dinoflagellates (1996). There are four main contributions, all from recognized scientists whose work has spanned several decades. With this line-up the book promises much and doesn't disappoint. Each chapter contains its own index in addition to the one at the back of the book, and the reference lists are extensive. Most plates contain high-quality drawings. The cost of this book is very reasonable indeed considering its length and that each chapter is written by one or two of the leaders in their respective fields. The book is aimed at both experts and beginners alike, and I for one discovered a lot of interesting snippets hidden away in the text of each chapter. Quaternary specialists should have a copy of this on their shelves."
—Richard W. Jordan in BMS NEWSLETTER OF MICROPALAEONTOLOGY
"Each [chapter] must rank as a major monograph ... this volume will become indispensable for anyone involved in identification of phytoplankton. All contributors must be congratulated..."
—ZOOLOGICAL JOURNAL OF THE LINNEAN SOCIETY
"Now, at last, we have a book, focused on phytoplankton, in which known species are listed and a substantial number of the important species are described ... [this] nicely produced book packs a lot of information into its 263 pages and will make a welcome addition to the library of anyone working on microbial food webs as well as phytoplankton taxonomy."
—LIMNOLOGY AND OCEANOGRAPHY (1994)
