This book provides a comprehensive survey of element requirements and cycling in algae, as well as in-depth information on element cycling in wetlands and the environment. Wetland classification, hydrology, soils, vegetation, and productivity are also presented. Additional topics covered include essentiality and toxicity of elements for plants; uptake, assimilation, and storage of micronutrients; uptake and accumulation of heavy metals; primary productivity, growth rates, and limitation in algae as well as eutrophication. Packed with figures, tables, and references, the book is valuable to students and researchers in wetlands science, phycology, and ecology as well as environmental managers and consultants.
