This volume consists papers dealing with the measurement of photosynthetic pigments in freshwater and standardization of methods, which are presented at the 2nd workshop in Plön, Germany, in July 1980. The objective of this workshop were within the categories of storage, extraction, absorption spectrophotometry, specific absorption coefficients, acidification techniques, in vivo fluorometry and most modern chromatographic techniques.
