This volume covers the freshwater, aerophytic, and terrestrial green algae of the Ulvophyceae, one of the main classes of green algae. Although most of this diversity is found in the marine environment, a substantial number of species also occurs in brackish, freshwater, and aero-terrestrial habitats. This volume serves as a reference work for identifying these green algae by providing keys, detailed descriptions, and illustrations of the more than 100 European species, along with descriptions of more than 100 non-European taxa. The present study incorporates the latest findings in phylogeny, ultrastructure and morphology for the classification, and delimitation of species. In addition, it significantly revises the taxonomy of ulvophytes, based on new molecular phylogenetic data. One order and one family are resurrected (Chlorocystidales, Chlorocystidaceae), and one order and five families are newly described (Ignatiales, Ignatiaceae, Binucleariaceae, Planophilaceae, Hazeniaceae, Sarcinofilaceae, and Tupiellaceae).

Students and naturalists are not only interested in which species live on the seashore but also about their biology. A Student's Guide to the Seashore is a unique, concise, illustrated guide to both the biology and the identification of over 600 common and widespread shore animals and plants. This new edition, for the first time, includes simple keys to allow accurate identification, and the author's line drawings beautifully illustrate each species. Together with concise summaries of diagnostic features, and notes on biology, this is the first comprehensive guide to the seashore giving a fascinating insight into the diversity and complexity of life on the shore.

This thorough and informative volume presents a set of detailed, globally applicable techniques for seagrass research. The book provides methods for all aspects of seagrass science from basic plant collection to statistical approaches and investigations of plant-animal interaction. The emphasis is on methods that are applicable in both developing and developed countries. The importance of seagrasses in coastal and near shore environments, and ultimately their contribution to the productivity of the world's oceans, has become increasingly recognised over the last 40 years. Seagrasses provide food for sea turtles, nearly 100 fish species, waterfowl and for the marine mammals the manatee and dugong. Seagrasses also support complex food webs by virtue of their physical structure and primary production and are well known for their role as breeding grounds and nurseries for important crustacean, finfish and shell fish populations. Seagrasses are the basis of an important detrital food chain. The plants filter nutrients and contaminants from the water, stabilise sediments and act as dampeners to wave action. Seagrasses rank with coral reefs and mangroves as some of the world's most productive coastal habitat and strong linkages among these habitats make the loss of seagrasses a contributing factor in the degradation of the world's oceans. Contributors from around the world provide up-to-date methods for comparable collection of ecological information from both temperate and tropical seagrass ecosystems.

It has become apparent from the literature that bioerosional processes affect a wide range of biological and geological systems that cross many disciplines among the sciences. This book is dedicated to crossing those traditional disciplinary boundaries to present a united and current perspective on the pattern and process of bioerosion. The book opens with papers on the evolutionary significance of bioerosion. It concludes with a primer on the bioerosion bibliography website.

Depuis des siècles, les algues constituent une part importante de l'alimentation de nombreuses cultures. Aujourd'hui, elles occupent une place centrale dans l'industrie agroalimentaire. Bonnes ou mauvaises algues ? Il n'est pas facile de déterminer les effets des algues sur la santé et sur l'environnement. Leur étude est donc un enjeu majeur, d'autant que les algues sont un indicateur de l'état des milieux marins. Ce Guide des algues des mers d'Europe a été conçu pour être utilisé par tous : les 300 espèces décrites sont groupées par couleur et sont presque systématiquement illustrées de clichés d'une qualité exceptionnelle. Une introduction présentant les états des écosystèmes qui accueillent les algues en Atlantique a été ajoutée à cette nouvelle édition entièrement revue et corrigée.
