This Flora provides the first modern account and identification guide to more than 2200 species of freshwater algae found in the British Isles (excluding diatoms), the majority of which also have a world-wide distribution. Non-technical descriptions are supported by clear line illustrations or photographs and user-friendly keys enable the accurate identification of specimens to the level of genus or species. The accompanying CD-ROM photo catalog of more than 1000 spectacular color images of freshwater algae and their habitats provides a valuable additional reference source and identification tool.

"Ten years in the making, co-authored by 26 scientists and covering 2,275 photosynthetic species and 533 subspecies, this is a massive undertaking and a very weighty tome in more ways than one. It synthesizes information scattered in over 40 publications." Biodiversity
"This eagerly awaited book, long in preparation, is the first major flora of freshwater and terrestrial algae in the British Isles in some 75 years, a time when the number of species and genera in the area has more than doubled.... Highly recommended for professionals and all undergraduate and graduate institutions with programs in aquatic biology. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals; two-year technical program students." Choice
