  • Contributions from some of the leading experts in the field
  • Includes important compilations and new research results
  • New and emerging research areas related to diatoms are introduced and discussed

Diatoms are fascinating algae, whose relevance today is greater than perhaps ever before. They are important players in a wide range of ecosystems, freshwater, brackish and marine.  They are also being investigated as a source of renewable biofuels.  Because the literature on diatoms is published in a diverse set of journals under many different disciplines, it is hard for people to track down the diverse array of cutting edge research results on the group.  The Diatom World brings together many of the experts in the world of diatom research, who summarize important topics on diatom classification, biology, genomics research, and a broad spectrum of ecological studies, and present new data in these areas.  The topics address age-old questions, and explore new and emerging areas of research.  In this combination of persistent questions, and new horizons, it is clear that the diatoms remain as fascinating and intriguing today as they were when Von Leeuwenhoek first spied them over 300 years ago.  We suspect interest in this group will grow in the years to come, as many new fields emerge around their biology, geological record, incredible morphologies and ecological breadth
