Edited and augmented by John Gustav Delly & (Denis) Steven Gill. This is book of pages, but available only as a free (!) pdf download from the Amateur Diatomist site:File Size: KB. The book then delves into the ecology of diatoms living in a wide range of habitats, and look at those few that can kill or harm us. The book concludes with a wide range of applications of diatoms, in forensics, manufacturing, medicine, biofuel and agriculture. The contributors are leading international experts on diatoms.

The aim of this new book series (Diatoms: Biology and Applications) is to provide a comprehensive and reliable source of information on diatom biology and first book of the series, Diatoms Fundamentals & Applications, is wide ranging, starting with the contributions of amateurs and The Diatoms book beauty of diatoms, to details of how their shells are made.

Diatoms are microscopic algae which are found in virtually every habitat where water is present. This volume is an up-to-date summary of the expanding field of their uses in environmental and earth sciences. Their abundance and wide distribution, and their well-preserved glass-like walls make them ideal tools for a wide range of applications as both 5/5(1).

Summary. The basic requirements for diatom analysis have changed little over the last few decades in terms of sampling, slide preparation, microscopy and taxonomy but, on the other hand, there have been major improvements in our knowledge of diatom distribution and ecology and a revolution in our ability to analyse diatom data.
