Bhattacharya, D. due March, 1998. Origins of Algae and their Plastids. Algae
are of central importance in marine and freshwater ecosystems. Recent
molecular sequence analyses show that the algae are of polyphyletic origin
and that their evolution is best explained by tracing the endosymbiotic
events that have resulted in the origins of their plastids. This volume
provides a highly readable, thorough, and up-to-date account of the major
findings in algal, cyanobacterial and plastid phylogeny. All major algal
groups (e.g. green, red, heterokont, and dinoflagellate algae) are treated
in separate chapters by leading experts on these groups.  X, 287 pp. 55
figs. Hardcover $179.00
