For undergraduate Algae and Phycology courses.
This text focuses on what students really want to know about algae—why they are so diverse; how they are related; how to distinguish the major types; their roles in food webs, global biogeochemical cycling; the formation of harmful algae blooms; and how we utilize them. It also provides a broad coverage of freshwater, marine, and terrestrial algae.
