Cell Walls and Surfaces, Reproduction, Photosynthesis by Wolfgang Wiessner

Algae belong to the lower plants. They are not only favoured but also highly striking objects for studies on various areas of biology. The present volume of the new book series Experimental Phycology presents recent results of studies on the cell wall, reproduction, and photosynthesis of algae.
