This collection of essays is devoted to algae that are unexpectedly found in harsh habitats. The authors explain how these algae thrive in various temperature ranges, extreme pH values, salt solutions, UV radiation, dryness, heavy metals, anaerobic niches, various levels of illumination, and hydrostatic pressure. Not only do the essays provide clues about life on the edges of the Earth, but possibly elsewhere in the universe as well.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The algae are a remarkably successful group, accounting for the oxygen we breathe and responsible for the greater part of carbon and nitrogen fixation. They are found almost anywhere ... from freshwater to brine and from the deserts to the great oceans. How they function in such extraordinary conditions is the subject of this book. ... the book's main readership will be phycologists and ecologists ... . This is a very useful book ... ." (Mark Burgess, Biochemist e-Volution, April, 2009)
