Provides a thorough treatise of the world - wide morphological andmolecular diversity of the phototrophic eukaryotic Algae. The Rhodo-bionta will be treated in part 2 of volume 2. -Recent DNA sequence data and advances in phylogenetic analysis brought tremendous changes to the interpretation of evolutionary relationships in every taxonomic rank, even in the lowermost plant groups. As in Part 1/1 (Blue-green Algae, Myxomycetes and (Bryophytes and seedless Vascular Plants) the authors followedthe tradition of A. Engler with morphological-anatomical data, but are now incorporating the results from molecular phylogenies. This up-to-date overview of the photoautotrophic eukaryotic Algae will be of service in the reference literature for a long time.
