Edward G Bellinger and David C Sigee

Wiley-Blackwell, £65.00

As the authors say, freshwater algae have delighted biologists with their range of shapes and beauty for a long time.

Now biologists, professional and amateur, can take delight in Edward Bellinger and David Sigee's updated edition.

A comprehensive overview is followed by what is virtually a practical manual on sampling, biomass estimation and counts of planktonic and non-planktonic algae.

A third section discusses algae as bioindicators in lakes, wetlands, rivers and estuaries, with the final section, making up around half of the book, providing a key to the more frequently occurring species. In effect, this is four books in one, brilliantly packaged into fewer than 300 pages.
