Subject: Yet another inquiry on textbooks

Dear Colleagues,
    I am developing a course in marine botany and I am looking for a current 
and comprehensive textbook on the subject and a good laboratory manual.  I 
have done a number of searches (including archived messages of Algae-L) and 
it seems Dawes' Marine Botany is about it.  I am familiar with other more 
specialized books like Lobban, Lee or Graham and Wilcox, but these are 
focused on algae only.  I have also yet to find a laboratory manual for a 
marine botany lab.  My concern is that algal taxonomy has changed a lot in 
the past few years and I believe the most current edition of Dawes is from 
1998...not too bad, but still a lot has happened since then.  On the other 
hand, more updated Phycology texts do not cover seagrasses, mangroves or 
cyanobacteria.  My question are 1) what textbook (or combination thereof) do 
you recommend for general marine botany and 2) are there any laboratory 
manuals for such a course?
Your comments are appreciated,
