Algal Culturing Techniques is a comprehensive reference on all aspects of the isolation and cultivation of marine and freshwater algae, including seaweeds. It is divided into seven parts that cover history, media preparation, isolation and purification techniques, mass culturing techniques, cell counting and growth measurement techniques, and reviews on topics and applications of algal culture techniques for environmental investigations.

Algal Culturing Techniques was developed to serve as both a new textbook and key reference for phycologists and others studying aquatic systems, aquaculture and environmental sciences. Students of algal ecology, marine botany, marine phycology, and microbial ecology will enjoy the hands-on methodology for culturing a variety of algae from fresh and marine waters.

Review:

"It has been worth the wait. Andersen and the authors have done a tremendous job bringing together many old and new methods in highly readable and easy to follow order...In addition to the older standard methods, it adds many new ones, from automated isolation and counting of algal cells to use of cultures as a way to prevent extinctions of threatened species...the methods chapters, e.g., Andersen and Kawachi on microalgal isolation techniques are very detailed, providing plain, easy to follow, often step-by-step instructions, complete with supplies needed and even sources, on how to do particular tasks...Bob Andersen, the authors, and PSA are to be commended for bringing together so much detailed information in one place. The book is beautifully produced...It definitely needs to be in the lab and/or office of everyone doing research on algae...I highly recommend it."
- R.A. Horner, University of Washington, School of Oceanography, Seattle, U.S.A., in HARMFUL ALGAE (2006)

"This comprehensive book is a necessity for research scientists who use and maintain algal cultures."
