Flora of the Bluegreen Algae of the Netherlands

The Non-Filamentous Species of Inland Waters

Anton M.T. Joosten

The Netherlands are a small country, characterized by a large diversity of fresh to slightly brackish, oligo- to hypereutrophic stagnant and flowing inland waters. This diversity is reflected in a remarkable richness of phytoplankton species with blue-green algae as an important component.
Identification of phytoplankton frequently brings on serious problems, due to the scarcity of up-to-date floras. This book, written by an acknowledged Dutch phytoplankton expert, presents a new modern approach to the identification of phytoplankton of The Netherlands.

• 500 original black-and-white photographs show all the details necessary for light-microscopical identification
