This volume adds an additional 800 species of algae to those described in Volume 3 bringing the algal biodiversity of the country to nearly 2000 species. Mostly aquatic, this rich biodiversity is in considerable threat due to habitat loss as a result of intense human activity and rapid depletion of water bodies.
