Studium: Řasy

V tomto článku najdete odborné i populárně-naučné knihy o sladkovodních řasách a sinicích, které považuji za užitečné a prostudování-hodné.

BELLINGER, Edward G. a D. C. SIGEE. Freshwater algae: identification, enumeration and use as bioindicators. Second edition. Chichester (West Sussex): Wiley Blackwell, 2015. ISBN 978-1-118-91716-9.

This is the second edition of Freshwater Algae; the popular guide to temperate freshwater algae. This book uniquely combines practical information on sampling and experimental techniques with an explanation of basic algal taxonomy plus a key to identify the more frequently-occurring organisms. Fully revised, it describes major bioindicator species in relation to key environmental parameters and their implications for aquatic management.

Bridging the gap between simple identification texts and highly specialised research volumes, this book is used both as a comprehensive introduction to the subject and as a laboratory manual. The new edition will be invaluable to aquatic biologists for algal identification, and for all practitioners and researchers working within aquatic microbiology in industry and academia.

This second edition includes:

  • the same clear writing style as the first edition to provide an easily accessible source of information on algae within standing and flowing waters, and the problems they may cause
  • the identification of 250 algae using a key based on readily observable morphological features that can be readily observed under a conventional light microscope
  • up-to-date information on the molecular determination of taxonomic status, analytical microtechniques and the potential role of computer analysis in algal biology
  • upgrades to numerous line drawings to include more detail and extra species information, full colour photographs of live algae – including many new images from the USA and China

Přední vysokoškolská učebnice a příručka ke studiu algologie (nauky o řasách). Důraz je v ní kladen především na ekologii a molekulární biologii řas. Studenti zde najdou odpovědi na otázky, proč jsou řasy tak rozmanité, jak spolu jednotlivé druhy souvisejí, jak od sebe odlišit hlavní druhy řas, jaká je jejich úloha v potravních řetězcích nebo jak se dají využít. Popsány jsou zde sladkovodní, mořské i suchozemské řasy. Pokud by si každý akvarista přečetl (a pochopil) alespoň úvodní kapitolu této knihy, ubyla by na fórech nejméně polovina dotazů o řasách.

The foremost textbook and reference for studying Phycology, Algae, Second Edition features hundreds of new illustrations, a new chapter on terrestrial algae, and thorough updates that reflect new classification structures. With an emphasis on algae ecology and molecular biology, the authors focus on what students really want to know about algae–why they are so diverse; how they are related; how to distinguish the major types; their roles in food webs; global biogeochemical cycling; the formation of harmful algae blooms; and how we utilize them. The text also provides a broad coverage of freshwater, marine, and terrestrial algae.

WEHR, John D., Robert G. SHEATH a John Patrick KOCIOLEK. Freshwater algae of North America: ecology and classification. Second edition. Amsterdam: Elsevier, 2015. ISBN 978-0-12-385876-4.

Freshwater Algae of North America: Ecology and Classification, Second Edition is an authoritative and practical treatise on the classification, biodiversity, and ecology of all known genera of freshwater algae from North America. The book provides essential taxonomic and ecological information about one of the most diverse and ubiquitous groups of organisms on earth. This single volume brings together experts on all the groups of algae that occur in fresh waters (also soils, snow, and extreme inland environments). In the decade since the first edition, there has been an explosion of new information on the classification, ecology, and biogeography of many groups of algae, with the use of molecular techniques and renewed interest in biological diversity. Accordingly, this new edition covers updated classification information of most algal groups and the reassignment of many genera and species, as well as new research on harmful algal blooms.

  • Extensive and complete
  • Describes every genus of freshwater algae known from North America, with an analytical dichotomous key, descriptions of diagnostic features, and at least one image of every genus
  • Full-color images throughout provide superb visual examples of freshwater algae
  • Updated Environmental Issues and Classifications, including new information on harmful algal blooms (HAB)
  • Fully revised introductory chapters, including new topics on biodiversity, and taste and odor problems
  • Updated to reflect the rapid advances in algal classification and taxonomy due to the widespread use of DNA technologies
