The original German - language edition was published in 2013 as 'Diatomeen im Süßwasser - Benthos von Mitteleuropa. Bestimmungsflora Kieselalagen für die ökologische Praxis. Über 700 der häufigsten Arten und ihre Ökologie, by Gabriele Hofmann, Marcus Werum & Horst Lange- Bertalot, corrected edition 2013, edited by H. Lange - Bertalot.' 26 genera were included in the updated English edition of the book whilst just in three cases genera that we incuded in the first (German) edition have been removed (although they are still mentioned and briefly explained in the book). 10 species have been added to the book, 27 more have been mentioned under 'Similar taxa', taxonomic concepts were clarified / updated for 36, and 39 were transferred from one genus to another. The English edition is intended primarily as a tool to facilitate consistent and accurate identification of diatoms in central Europe. The present diatom flora consists of different identification keys, species profiles in alphabetical order, and photographic plates. A general key directs to the 110 genera included in the book. For species - rich genera keys to the species are provided. While using these keys one must keep being aware that this book covers only frequent and / or locally abundant species. It may thus well be that some of the species encountered are not inlcuded in the keys.
