  1. Continued use of petroleum sourced fuels is now widely recognized as unsustainable because of depleting supplies and the contribution of these fuels to the accumulation of carbon dioxide in the environment. Renewable, carbon neutral, transport fuels…
  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. 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…
  4. 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…
  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. 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…
  8. 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.…
