Freshwater Algae in the Antarctic Regions

Abstract

From the beginning of the nineteenth century onwards many European nations organised research expeditions to the Antarctic. Knowledge of freshwater algae in the Antarctic and the surrounding regions has gradually accumulated in the published reports of these expeditions. However, the information available at present is far from complete and insufficient to permit any general interpretation. Such a general interpretation, if it could be made, would be of considerable interest and value.
