Provides a comprehensive guide to temperate freshwater algae, with additional information on key species in relation to environmental characteristics and implications for aquatic management

The book uniquely combines practical material on techniques and water quality management with basic algal taxonomy and the role of algae as bioindicators.

It's divided into two parts: Part I describes techniques for the sampling, measuring and observation of algae and then looks at the role of algae as bioindicators and the implications for aquatic management; Part II provides the identification of major genera and 250 important species.

Well illustrated with numerous original illustrations and photographs, this reference work is essential reading for all practitioners and researchers concerned with assessing and managing the aquatic environment
