I've got used this publication quite a bit in the course of my MSc undertaking on Algal groups, that it turned my own bible for all features of benthic algal ecology. it is a very complete e-book, that's either fascinating and correct correct from the beginning until eventually 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.

Move by extruding small bursts of pectin through the cell wall. Most motile diatoms are unicellular, are characteristically benthic, and move by means of a raphe (mucilage extruded through a long, narrow opening in the cell wall). But one genus of diatom, Bacillaria, is filamentous and motile and can occur in benthic habitats, even though it is characteristically planktonic. Nonmotile forms of unicellular, colonial, and filamentous algae may be attached to substrata or entangled in the matrix of other organisms that are attached (Fig.

However, changes in diversity characteristics can be used as indicators of community change (Stevenson, 1984b). 18 R. Jan Stevenson 3. Chemical Composition Chemical composition of benthic algal samples has been used as an indicator of nutrient availability for benthic algae and community health.
