By L.V. Evans and K.D. Hoagland (Eds.)

This booklet includes the court cases of a symposium on freshwater and marine algal biofouling backed by means of the Phycological Society of the USA at the side of the yankee Institute of organic Sciences (AIBS). The publication brings jointly for the 1st time, a range of contributions reflecting present study during this box. The booklet is basically directed to researchers in any respect degrees within the box of freshwater and marine algal biofouling, and is meant to supply the root for the advance of a better expertise among the paintings of the 2 teams, to their mutual profit. wisdom of the typical floor and underlying similarities also needs to be worthy to employees in either fields. every one bankruptcy is self-contained, with its personal record of references etc., and several other chapters are broadly illustrated with unique high quality pictures and micrographs. the amount can also be listed.
