Customer reviews

What is the link between the red-blood spots in the snow and the giant algae in some seas? What analogies exist between the algae which colour certain polluted lakes and those which periodically prevent marine molluscs from being consumed? How do some algae manage to "climb" trees or onto the roofs of certain dwellings? What are their constituent substances, whose virtues are regularly extolled. These are just a few of the questions to which this book attempts to find answers. It gives a glimpse into the strange secrets of algae and suggests a few keys - scientific names and technical terms - to help the most curious unlock the doors to this fascinating world, known as "Algae" in laymen's terms.
