"Marine Phytoplankton: A Guide to Naked Flagellates and Coccolithophorids" aids the identification of marine phytoplankton, particularly flagellated and extant coccolithophorid taxa. Because most identifications are routinely done employing light microscopy the emphasis is on this means of viewing. More advanced methods, like electron microscopy, are presented where appropriate. Many species are illustrated, and extensive citations encourage entry into the primary literature. A subsequent companion guide will aid in the identification of dinoflagellates and diatomes.
