Reviews

"... This volume provides a highly readable, thorough, and up-to-date account of major findings in algal, cyanobacterial, and plastid phylogeny ...” Photosynthetica "... this volume brings together a good deal of the current molecular data and presents conclusions in clear, well-written accounts. I would certainly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the evolution of lower eukaryotes, photosynthetic or otherwise.” SGM Quaterly Society of General Microbiology "... This superb book discusses in great depth what research using the new molecular methods has revealed about the evolution of algae and their plastids in the decade since Sogin’s first surprising phylogenetic trees were published ... Bhattacharya has produced the right book at the right time ...” Journal of Phycology "... an excellent book containing extremly well written and informative articles. It is recommended to all who have an interest in algal and higher plant phylogeny, either for research purposes or for up-to-date teaching.” Journal of Plant Physiology "... every chapter delivers plenty of value ... I congratulate the authors and editor, and recommend this book highly.” Phycologia
