Dear reader,

within the next three weeks the following book will be published:

Bhattacharya, D. (ed.): Origins of Algae and their Plastids. 1997.
55 figures. 320 p. Hardcover. DM 270/US$ 154 approx.

Recent molecular sequence analyses show that the algae are of polyphyletic 
origins and that their evolution is best explained by tracing the endosymbiotic 
events that have resulted in the origins of their plastids. This volume provides 
an account of the major findings in algal, cyanobacterial and plastid phylogeny. 
All major algal groups (e.g. green, red, heterokont, dinoflagellate algae) are 
treated in separate chapters by leading experts on these groups.
