From the Publisher"John, Whitton and Brook has now become the reference book of choice in Europe for identification of algae other than diatoms. This new edition is an authoritative update of the first edition, published nine years ago, with many new advances incorporated, more contributors and an interesting and eclectic DVD to accompany the main text. Algal systematics has benefited from molecular and electron microscope studies to the extent that some structural features are now seen to be misleading, but microscopic identification will remain the prime tool for ecologists and water managers in the foreseeable future. This new flora will retain its predecessor's preeminence, with every section updated and those on green algae, especially desmids, and on Cyanobacteria, extensively revised. The figures are clear and photographs are provided, on the DVD, of many species. It is a work of great credit to its editors and authors."
Brian Moss, Professor Emeritus, University of Liverpool
"An invaluable reference for freshwater workers worldwide, and an important acquisition for all professional and academic institutions with programs covering any aspect of freshwater biology. Highly recommended."
