Marine Algaæ of New England and the Adjacent Coast

Nature volume 24, pages 354355 | Download Citation



THIS valuable essay on the “Marine Algæ of New England” is a reprint from the United States Fish Commission Report for 1879. It includes a list of all the species of sea-weeds, with the exception of the diatoms, which are known to occur on the coast of the United States, from New Jersey to Eastport, Me. Prof. Farlow gives in a compact and more or less popular form a description of the various orders and species, and he adds a short account of the general structure and classification of seaweeds, so that all persons frequenting the coast of New England are thus furnished with a handy and compact manual of the subject. The fifteen excellent plates drawn by J. H. Blake and W. G. Farlow deserve a special notice, as they give details of structure which will enable the text to be understood by an intelligent student.
