I've got used this booklet loads in the course of my MSc venture on Algal groups, that it grew to become my own bible for all facets of benthic algal ecology. it is a very entire booklet, that's either fascinating and suitable correct from the beginning until the very finish. All themes are good designed and illustrated and all in all it's very great to learn - not just for Ecologists like me.

Conceptual Frameworks for Benthic Algal Community Ecology References I. THE DIVERSITY OF BENTHIC ALGAE AND THEIR HABITATS IN FRESH WATERS A. The Taxonomic and Morphological Diversity of Benthic Algae Algae are a highly diverse group of organisms that have important functions in aquatic habitats. Algae are an evolutionarily diverse group of photoautotrophic organisms with chlorophyll a and unicellular reproductive structures.
I also recommend using standard methods (APHA, 1992) so that measurements are comparable as possible. Preferences for a nonstandard method may be great by individual investigators because of convenience and habitat-specific conditions, but effort should be made to use standard methods for consistency among studies. 2. Taxonomic Composition Many approaches can be used to characterize the kinds of organisms in a benthic algal sample (Table III). Benthic algal species or taxonomic composition is typically assessed by identifying and counting cells microscopically (APHA, 1992).
