Reviews

From the reviews of the hardcover edition:

"The chemical protections evolved by a great number of algae and how they affect the ecology where they live is the focus of this book. ... Amsler (Univ. of Alabama) has compiled a highly detailed and referenced scholarly synthesis of the current state of knowledge in this important field of study ... . Valuable for libraries collecting the top references related to the aquatic environment. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students through professionals in aquatic ecology." (C. W. Schneider, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (9), 2008)

"Algal Chemical Ecology is the first book to synthesize the relatively young but quickly growing body of knowledge relating to algal chemistry. ... It is an invaluable resource for those who study, want to study, or simply have an interest in algal ecology. ... The authors create a clear picture of algal secondary metabolites and the implications this has on their interactions ... . Researchers and students of algae, and aquatic ecology in general, would be well served to read this book." (Jason R. Graff, Clean, Vol. 36 (3), 2008)
