Diatoms: Biology and Morphology of the Genera.
F.E. Round, R.M. Crawford, D.G. Mann. Due Late July 2007. ISBN: 9780521714693. 757 pp. Paperback edition of the 1990 hardcover edition. $80.00
Illustrated descriptions of over 250 genera of diatoms are presented for the first time in this wide-ranging volume. The introduction describes the diatom cell in detail, the structure of the wall (often extremely beautiful designs), the cell contents and aspects of life cycle and cell division. The generic atlas section is the first account of diatom systematics since 1928, and each generic description is accompanied by scanning electron micrographs to show the characteristic structure.

Sims (editor) at al. 1996. Atlas of British diatoms. This comprehensive set of illustrations of freshwater and marine diatoms provides diatomists for the first time with detailed scale drawings of some 2,000 species. This encompasses all the common species, most of which are world-wide in distribution. The illustrations are mainly the work of H.G. Barber and thus in a uniform style and magnification. Some additional plates have been provided by J.R. Carter and all have been admirably rearranged in an alphabetical order of genera and species by B. Hartley to form a user-friendly guide to the identification of this most abundant group of organisms. The only comparable work is Schmidt's Atlas which was published between 1874 and 1959 but that Atlas has the species scattered. The present Atlas clusters the species (e.g. 42 plates of Navicula) and will form a major source book with the classification having been brought up to date. The authors have an extremely detailed knowledge of diatoms (well over 100 years in total experience) with a deep understanding of the variation during the growth cycle - this is illustrated by multiple drawings of most taxa. In all there are over 7,000 illustrations, approx. 600 pages. hardcover.  Trade Cloth ISBN 0-948737-45-X.  $205.00
