Freshwater algae are among the most diverse and ubiquitous organisms on earth. They occupy an enormous range of ecological conditions from lakes and rivers to acidic peat swamps, inland saline lakes, snow and ice, damp soils, wetlands, desert soils, wastewater treatment plants, and are symbionts in and on many plants, fungi, and animals.

In North America, the variety of freshwater habitats. This book provides in one volume a practical and comprehensive guide to the genera of freshwater algae known from North America.

Girard, Charles Smithsonian Institution, Freshwater phycologists and aquatic microscopists will welcome this book as the first comprehensive, single-volume treatment of the freshwater algae in over half a century.

The study of freshwater algae in North America has a rich history, with monographs, such. The history of phycology is the history of the scientific study of interest in plants as food goes back into the origins of the species and knowledge of algae can be traced back more than two thousand years.

However, only in the last three hundred years has that knowledge evolved into a rapidly developing science. Aquaculture (less commonly spelled aquiculture), also known as aquafarming, is the farming of fish, crustaceans, molluscs, aquatic plants, algae, and other lture involves cultivating freshwater and saltwater populations under controlled conditions, and can be contrasted with commercial fishing, which is the harvesting of wild fish.

Freshwater Algae is divided into two parts: part I is a general introduction to algae and techniques for sampling, measuring and observation and then looks at the role of algae as bioindicators and the implications for aquatic management, part II provides the identification of.
