"Identifying Marine Phytoplankton" is an accurate and authoritative guide to the identification of marine diatoms and dinoflagellates, meant to be used with tools as simple as a light microscope. The book compiles the latest taxonomic names, an extensive bibliography (referencing historical as well as up-to-date literature), synthesis and criteria in one indispensable source. Techniques for preparing samples and containing are included as well as hundreds of detailed, helpful information. "Identifying Marine Phytoplankton" is a combined paperback edition made available by popular demand of two influential books published earlier - "Marine Phytoplankton" and "Identifying Marine Diatoms and Dinoflagellates". It contains hundreds of illustrations showing critical characteristics necessary for proper identification, plus keys and other guides; provides up-to-date taxonomic revisions; includes species from around the world; updates synthesis of modern and historical literature presented by active researchers in the field; and compiles literature from around the world into one handy source.
