The first part of the book is the list of the 145 found species with some words about their dimensions, geographical distribution and ecological preferences, supplemented with the authors' special observations in some cases. In the next part a drawing of each taxon can be found, indicating also the sizes.
The third part contains the ecological results: the mean values of the temperature, Secchi depth, conductivity, pH, Centrales-, Pennales- and total phytoplankton density at the different sampling stations; the course of hydrometric level, Secchi depth, Centrales-, Pennales density and Bacillariophyceae density relative to total phytoplankton; the found correlation and another species list indicating the occurrences at the 12 sampling sites. In my opinion the book might become a great help for hydrobiologists, algologists working on rivers, provides useful information on the collected diatoms and also on the main yearly trends of floods and low water periods, other ecological data and their effect on phytoplankton.
