For the first time, a guide to the conspicuous algae found in the streams and lakes of Australia. Spectacular photographs and simple illustrated keys allow easy identification. Over 300 colour photographs, supplemented by elegant hand-drawings, display the beauty and diversity of more than 120 genera of freshwater algae. The easy-to-read text and computer-generated identification icons cover 96 genera in detail. This is an essential reference for naturists, students, water-managers, scientists, in fact anyone interested in the extraordinary but until now hidden world of freshwater algae.
