    About this book. Written and assembled by an international team of specialists, this book incorporates all the latest information on the green seaweeds of Britain and Ireland (families Trebouxiophyceae and Ulvophyceae), revealing a wealth of diversity.

However, only in the last three hundred years has that knowledge evolved into a rapidly developing science.
