Marine phytoplankton include the familiar diatoms and dinoflagellates as well as naked flagellates and coccolithophorids. These microscopic ocean residents poison coastal waves with "red tides," brighten nightime waters with shimmering bioluminescence, and form the foundation of almost all marine food chains. Resulting from a fusion of two successful hardcover editions (Marine Phytoplankton, 1993, and Identifying Marine Diatoms and Dinoflangellates, 1996,) this updated paperback edition is a copiously illustrated taxonomic reference and will permit easy identification by routine light microscope methods. Authoritative contributions make this thoroughly referenced volume indispensable in efforts to establish and continuously monitor the health of marine environments.
