  • Classification
  • Identification — using the highly illustrated key with supporting text and references
  • Protozoan communities — covering a range of man-made and natural environments
  • Glossary of terms
  • Extensive bibliography and reference lists
From the Reviews: ‘... The photomicrographs are generally of excellent quality, and these, with the equally excellent line drawings and complete descriptions, make for a very easy-to-use key. This is about the best reference one could have, short of an actual, living specimen ... This is not a specialist book and can be easily used by amateurs; but it should also prove a valuable guide to professional biologists involved with water, sewage works, rivers, soils, environmental management, food science, and public health; it would, in addition, serve as a dandy teaching aid for classroom use, as well as for self-study.’ — The Microscope
