The foremost textbook and reference for studying Phycology,Algae,Second Editionfeatures hundreds of new illustrations, a new chapter on terrestrial algae, and thorough updates that reflect new classification structures. With an emphasis on algae ecology and molecular biology, the authors focus on what students really want to know about algaendash;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. The text also provides a broad coverage of freshwater, marine, and terrestrial algae.Introduction to the Algae-Occurrence, Relationships, Nutrition, Definition, General Features, The Roles of Algae in Biochemistry,Algae in Biotic Associations, Technological Applications of Algae, Algal Diversity and Relationships-Taxonomy, Systematics, and Phylogeny, Cyanobacteria (Chloroxybacteria), Endosymbiosis and the Origin of Eukaryotic Algae-With a Focus on Glaucophytes, Chlorarachniophytes, and Apicomlexans, Euglenoids, Cryptomonads, Haptophytes, Dinoflagellates, Ochrophytes I-Introduction to the Ochrophytes and a focus on Diatoms, Ochrophytes II-Raphidophyceans, Chrysophyceans, Synurophyceans, and Eustigmatophyceans, Ochrophytes III-Pelagophyceans, Silicoflagellates, Pedinellids, and Related Forms, Ochrophytes IV-Chrysomeridaleans, Phaeothamniophyceans, Tribophyceans, and Phaeophyceans, Red Algae, Green Algae I-Introduction and Prasinophyceans, Green Algae II-Ulvophyceans, Green Algae III-Trebouxiophyceans, Green Algae IV-Chlorophyceans, Green Algae V-Charophyceans, Phytoplankton Ecology, Macroalgal and Periphyton Ecology.Intended for those interested in learning the basics of algae

Author Bio

Linda E. Grahamis Professor of Botany at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She teaches a field and laboratory course on algal biology and serves as a consultant to governmental agencies and industry on issues related to algae in the environment or as a source of useful products and processes. Her research lab focuses on algal phylogeny and evolutionary links between green algae and land plants, aspects of algal physiology and ecological associations in freshwaters, and biotechnological applications of algae. Dr. Graham earned a bachelor's degree from Washington University in St. Louis, a master's degree from the University of Texas, and a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. As a Ph.D. student, she also trained in marine algae at the Friday Harbor Labs operated by the University of Washington. Dr. Graham is a Fellow of the AAAS.
