Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'... 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
