    Book Description

    Publication Date: November 14, 2005 | ISBN-10: 0849314674 | ISBN-13: 978-0849314674 | Edition: 1
    An exhaustive review on all things algae would require a multi-volume encyclopedic work. Even then, such a tome would prove to be of limited value, as in addition to being quite complex, it would soon be outdated, as the field of phycology is full of continual revelations and new discoveries.

    Algae: Anatomy, Biochemistry, and Biotechnology offers students and researchers in phycology a more practical and useful approach. Instead of trying to offer a little bit of everything, the authors concentrate on highlighting especially interesting and illuminating topics, with the idea of inciting the sort of wonder and curiosity in undergraduate and post-graduate students that will encourage further outstanding work.

    The chapters can be read in progression to provide structure to a semester, or each can be read on its own as a self-contained essay to supplement other work.

    Written and designed for those with a general scientific background, the book covers freshwater, marine, and terrestrial forms. Its early chapters present an overview of the classification of the algae; these chapters are followed by reviews of life cycles, reproductions, and phylogeny, providing a conceptual framework that promotes a deeper understanding of more complex topics. Levels of organization are examined from the subcellular, cellular, and morphological standpoints, leading to discussions involving physiology, biochemistry, culture methods, and finally, the role of algae in human society. New findings are provided to demonstrate that the world of algae is still ripe with discovery for those students who keep their eyes and their minds active and open.

    Algae: Anatomy, Biochemistry, and Biotechnology stands as a hybrid, offering something of a cross between a typical review and a descriptive monograph. The work makes it possible for students to visualize and compare algal structure. It also supplies carefully selected literature

    Editorial Reviews


    …stands out for its in-depth information on structural and mechanical anatomy, with flagella as the most prominent example. The meticulous and elegant drawings of algal apparatuses and their mechanics make it easy to understand complex structures and functions, as well as constitutes another outstanding feature of this book.

    -Senjie Lin, Marine Sciences, University of Connecticut, Groton, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 81, December 2006

    Not intended to be comprehensive, this text is nonetheless packed with information on the general biology, anatomy, phylogeny, biochemistry, and culture of algae. The chapters...provide practical information and an excellent demonstration of the application of scientific knowledge. Highly recommended for students and experts alike...
    -Southeastern Naturalist, Vol. 5, No. 2, 2006 references that direct researchers to an abundance of precise details from original sources.
