Phycology Section, Academy of Natural Sciences

Data Center Description
The Phycology Section activities focus on ecology and taxonomy of freshwater algae, particularly diatoms. We seek to better understand the distributions of algal taxa throughout the U.S., and the environmental factors influencing both the occurrence of taxa over large scales and the composition of assemblages at individual sites. We are particularly interested in applying knowledge of algal ecology to the assessment of a wide range of environmental issues, but primarily those related to water quality of rivers and streams.
