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.
