Content Description top ↑

This is the third in a planned series to present a compendium of the freshwater algae, excluding the Bacillariophyceae and Charophyceae, reported as occurring in the southeastern United States. Parts 1 and 2 appeared in 1989.

As in Parts 1 and 2, in addition to keys, figures and descriptions, supportive literature citations (LIT) have been added for each genus and distributional data (DIST), by State, for each subgeneric category. Synonymy, as applicable to south- eastern reports, has been brought up-to-date in all cases where warranted corrections were known.

Accurate illustrations of algal taxa, based on authoritative sources, are of critical importance to the usefulness of a work such as this.
