Coastal phytoplankton boasts an incredible diversity of life forms. It is not rare to find 40 or 50 different species in just a few drops of water. This book describes the major phytoplankton groups, diatoms and dinoflagellates with additional information on ciliates and smaller flagellates. Taxonomic, ecological and biogeographic information is provided for on more than 130 taxa. As the majority of students and professional plankton analysts will mainly work with the light microscope, the species in the book are documented with light micrographs, giving the reader a realistic view of species as seen in a water sample.
