Freshwater Algae of North America. Ecology and Classification

Description:    Freshwater algae are among the most diverse and ubiquitous organisms on earth. They occupy an
                enormous range of ecological conditions from lakes and rivers to acidic peat swamps, inland saline
                lakes, snow and ice, damp soils, wetlands, desert soils, wastewater treatment plants, and are
                symbionts in and on many plants, fungi, and animals. In North America, the variety of freshwater
                habitats colonized by algae is very rich, and offers an enormous and fascinating range of
                environments for their study. They form the base of most aquatic food webs and are critical to
                studies of ecosystem health. Algal ecologists and taxonomists play an important role in the
                understanding of aquatic ecosystems: their biodiversity, productivity, interactions with other
                organisms, and water quality. This book provides in one volume a practical and comprehensive
                guide to the genera of freshwater algae known from North America. The format combines the
                necessary ecological, taxonomic and methodological information for all scientists working in aquatic
                environments, whether their specialty is in environmental monitoring and water quality
                assessment, biological composition, ecology, evolution, or molecular biology.
