  1. Error bars commonly appear in figures in publications, but experimental biologists are often unsure how they should be used and interpreted. In this article we illustrate some basic features of error bars and explain how they can help communicate…
  2. 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…
  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. This revision of the classification of unicellular eukaryotes updates that of Levine et al. (1980) for the protozoa and expands it to include other protists. Whereas the previous revision was primarily to incorporate the results of ultrastructural…
  5. Microalgae represent an exceptionally diverse but highly specialized group of micro-organisms adapted to various ecological habitats. Many microalgae have the ability to produce substantial amounts (e.g. 20-50% dry cell weight) of triacylglycerols…
  6. 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…
  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. We studied diatom taxonomic composition and the presence of morphological alterations (size and defor- mations) along a sediment core collected in Lac Dufault, Abitibi, whose watershed has a long history of mining pollution presently undergoing…
