  1. Many methods for using diatoms for routine monitoring of water quality have been developed in Europe and in some countries, these are being used to enforce environmental legislation. In order to facilitate their wider use, particularly with respect…
  2. There is a long-standing belief that microbial organisms have unlimited dispersal capabilities, are therefore ubiquitous, and show weak or absent latitudinal diversity gradients. In contrast, using a global freshwater diatom data set, we show that…
  3. There are many more phyla of microbes than of macro-organisms, but microbial biodiversity is poorly understood because most microbes are uncultured. Phylogenetic analysis of rDNA sequences cloned after PCR amplification of DNA extracted directly…
  4. Variation of frustular morphology within the Achnanthidium minutissimum (Ku ¨tz.) Czarn. species complex was studied in type populations of 12 described taxa and in 30 recent North American river samples. The SEM observations in this study and other…
  5. Biodiversity of both terrestrial ecosystems and lacustrine phytoplankton increases with niche dimensionality, which can be determined by the number of limiting resources (NLR) in the environment. In the present continental study, I tested whether…
  6. The diversities and distributions of diatoms are much more complex than was ever imagined. To understand the underlying mechanisms, research must focus on evolutionary processes occurring at a population level and employ sufficiently informative…
  7. The diatom Didymosphenia geminata (Lyngbye) M.Schmidt has been commonly considered a taxon restricted to pristine habitats in mountainous areas of circumboreal regions. Recent studies show that it has a broader distribution and ecological amplitude.
  8. Four araphid diatom taxa were collected from Florida streams and studied with both light mi- croscopy (LM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Three taxa, formerly in the genus Fragilaria LYNGBYE, are here placed in the genus Pseudostaurosira…
