This comprehensive set of illustrations of freshwater and marine diatoms provides diatomists with detailed scale drawings of some 2,000 species. It encompasses all the common species, most of which are world-wide in distribution.
Over 7000 illustrations have been arranged in an alphabetical order of genera and species to form a user-friendly guide to the identification of this most abundant group of organisms.
The authors have an extremely detailed knowledge of diatoms with a deep understanding of the variation during the growth cycle, which is illustrated by multiple drawings of most taxa.
This book will form a major source book for all those interested in diatoms with the classification having been brought up to date.
