About this book


Advances in Algal Biology: A Commemoration of the Work of Rex Lowe was written by students and colleagues of Rex Lowe to acknowledge his esteemed career that included exceptional contributions to research and teaching. Papers in the book cover a variety of topics in algal ecology, focusing on benthic algal ecology in freshwater ecosystems. The studies provide an unusual combination of small-scale experiments and large-scale regional surveys that bridge both basic and applied ecology. Ecologists, limnologists, phycologists, and environmental scientists will find valuable contributions to the development and application of algal research.

From the reviews:

"The 16 scientific contributions in the book center around the topics of systematics, benthic algal ecology, and environmental assessment. A cornerstone idea in Professor Lowe’s research efforts is that ecology and systematics are closely intertwined and ecological research is impossible without a sound systematical background. … It will be very useful to researchers interested in algal ecology in general and those working in alga-based water quality analysis." (K. É. Szabó, Acta Botanica Hungarica, Vol. 49, 2007)
