The utilization of unconventional microbial sources, particularly microalgae, for the production of feed, food, food additives, pharmaceuticals and fine chemicals is growing in importance. Research in the field is expanding worldwide. The author presents an account of research in algal production and utilization. The book explores in detail all steps of the subject, from the preparation of stock cultures to the growth in large outdoor ponds. Dr Becker provides a compilation of the different methods employed worldwide for the artificial cultivation of different microalgae, including recipes for culture media, description of outdoor and indoor cultivation systems as well as harvesting and processing methods. The book will be essential reading for advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers in the field.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Microalgae: Biotechnology and Microbiology...presents current information on methods and applications of algal cultures...in a simple and concise form...useful reading material for the advanced undergraduate and for those who are thinking of conducting research in the field of algal biotechnology...offers good coverage of the state of microalgae research today." Bio/Technology, July 1994
"...a most useful and richly referenced technological handbook on the large-scale continuous cultivation of [microalgae]...packed with useful information and is highly recommended for upper-division undergraduate and graduate agronomy students, and waste water and other professionals working in the field of mass microalgal cultivation." C.W. Schneider, Choice
"...Microalgae explores in detail all steps of the subject, from the preparation of stock cultures to the growth in large outdoor ponds...provides a compilation of the different methods employed worldwide for the artificial cultivation of different microalgae, including recipes for culture media, descriptions of outdoor and indoor cultivation systems, as well as harvesting and processing methods." Biology Digest
"...informative and practical. This is the sort of bioengineering volume that will be very useful to persons in the agricultural/engineering field, since it blends phycology, microbiology, chemical engineering and agronomy." Hayden N. Pritchard, Quarterly Review of Biology
"...contains valuable information for those interested in the practical applications of microalgae....I would rate this book as very useful, and would recommend it to biotechnologists in general (students or researchers) and to any microbiologist...." Rafael A. Garduno, CSM Newsletter
