[Plant-education] algae texts

In the spring I'll be teaching a jr-sr level course entitled
"Freshwater and Marine Botany." The first time I taught the course
it was basically an algae course, heavily biased toward marine
systems. Two-thirds of the classes were lectures and the rest were
student presentations of primary literature.
I am searching for a textbook. Last time I used Sze "A Biology of
the Algae". It is relatively inexpensive, easy to read, and not
overly detailed. I tended to prepare by reading Graham & Wilcox 2000
Does anyone have suggestions for other books? or on the relative
merits of Sze or Graham & Wilcox from the point of view of holding
the interest of an undergraduate?
p.s. I've been away from this listserv for several years. I'm
looking forward to being back on. I hope the spam has gone away...
