This is the 1st ever e-book committed fullyyt to the chemical ecology of algae. Algae from either marine and freshwater habitats are lined, as are macroalgae (seaweeds) and microalgae (including phytoplankton). whereas its major emphasis is at the ecological instead of chemical facets of the sector, the ebook additionally contains a detailed introductory bankruptcy meant as a primer on algal common items chemistry for ecologists. It elucidates the jobs of chemical defenses in quite a few areas and habitats, of DMSP, oxidative burst responses, and herbivore offense. themes similar to algal sensory chemical ecology and defenses opposed to ultraviolet radiation also are handled, and an creation to the chemical ecology of phytoplankton is provided.

Focusing on fresh advances and in addition on themes quite precious for undergraduate and graduate point classes, Algal Chemical Ecology is designed for study biologists operating within the box in addition to marine ecologists and algal biologists looking an introductory guide.

Phlorotannins are easily quantifiable by common colorimetric techniques (Ragan and Glombitzka 1986; Targett and Arnold 1998; Amsler and Fairhead 2006) and have been proposed to play ecological roles in wound healing, herbivore deterrence, microbial infection, metal ion chelation, and UV protection, as well as having antialgal and antifungal activities (Sieburth and Conover 1965; Ragan and Glombitzka 1986; Lau and Quian 1997; Pavia et al. 1997; Targett and Arnold 1998; Amsler and Fairhead 2006).
