9780521202466: Biology of the Red Algae

In the past fifteen years, research on the red algae has greatly advanced and diversified; new technologies have extended the range of questions being studied and have yielded findings that would have been previously unobtainable. The first comprehensive monograph concerning the rhodophyta in over fifteen years, this volume presents an authoritative review on the current state of knowledge on the biology of the red algae. The eighteen chapters range from molecular and cellular to biochemical, physiological, organismal and ecological aspects of this important group of algae. This is a much needed reference text for students, researchers and teachers concerned with aquatic biology, phycology, limnology, oceanography and plant evolution.

Book Description:

This 1990 book presents an authoritative review on the state of knowledge on the biology of the red algae. Written by a group of 26 internationally renowned experts, the eighteen chapters range from molecular and cellular to biochemical, physiological, organismal, and ecological aspects of this important group of algae.

Review:

"This book is the first major work on red algae since the publication of 'Biology of Rhodophyta' by P. Dixon in 1973....This scholarly work is a welcome addition to the list of reference books on algae." Plant Science Bulletin

"For those of us who teach phycology, Biology of the Red Algae is a convenient compendium of a large body of information accumulated throughout this century, and it provides accesss to recent primary literature that is often difficult to find. Teachers, investigators, and students will find this book valuable. Also, because the red algae present intriguing evolutionary problems on biochemical, cellular, and organismal levels, the book is an excellent resource for generalists who depend on accurate details from the research literature to construct or corroborate broad concepts." Larry B. Liddle, BioScience

"This book has many praiseworthy features. It is surprisingly readable for such a fact-packed reference. All of the authors do an excellent job of synthesizing material, and most point out recent advances, ongoing controversies, and promising areas for future research. Many of the chapters compile data from various sources in tables that facilitate interspecific comparisons. The quality of the figures, including many micrographs, is generally excellent. References listed at the end of each chapter cumulatively provide a comprehensive guide to primary literature....an invaluable reference for anyone with a serious interest in, and some prior knowledge of, the red algae." Valerie A. Gerard, Quarterly Review of Biology

"...provides an excellent review of plant cell biology and physiology. The chapters are clearly written for any student of biology to comprehend. This book should serve to focus attention on both the importance of red algae as a study system in cell biology and genetics, the need to apply this information to refine the systematics, and to support studies of field ecology." Kathleen M. Sullivan, Bulletin of Marine Science
