ANSP / NAWQA / EPA 2011 Diatom and Non-Diatom Taxa

This week there was a message from both DIATOM-L and ALGAE-L about a set of taxa names they have been developing in USA: http://diatom.ansp.org/nawqa/Taxalist.aspx.

Makes me wonder about the cleverness in making all kinds of – more or less taxonomically correct – algae lists in different countries. When does the dawn of international algae lists break through? Nordic Microalage has made a nice start. But a larger European co-operation on this subject would not be harmful. Not to talk bout the rest of the world. Step by step…

Do take a look at the rest of the pages of the Phycology Section, Patrick Center for Environmental Research. Interesting. Nice photo’s, although one can’t see all of them without logging in.
