Seaweeds Of The World


Dive into the wondrous world of seaweed with this lavishly illustrated guide to the seaweed families of the world.

From coastal shallows to depths of 250 metres and beyond, this book explores their diversity and vital role in ocean ecosystems, and the essential role they play in human life as food and fuel source..

Algae, not plants, they are critical marine building blocks. They are habitat, food source, and carbon sinks, sustaining ocean life. 

This book is the first in depth look at the  world of red, green, and brown algae, shedding light on their intricate reproductive systems and highlighting their immense value in sustaining a healthy and thriving ocean environment.

Author John H Bothwell is a phycologist from Durham University's biosciences department. With over two decades of research across the North Atlantic, North Pacific, and Indian Ocean, he and his team achieved ground breaking milestones: unveiling the first brown seaweed sex chromosome and accomplishing the first-ever genome sequence of a green seaweed.
