Personally I forsee a very big future for algae in the human food chain (directly or indirectly)
I think this book will prove it's relevance to both academic (biology, biochemistry, food, medicine etc.) and "self made" hobbyspecialist. It covers a complete list of algae topics and I think the information presented and the research are very up to date. Dedicated chapters describe the different algae families and cyanobacteria and their evolutionary relation and history. From a food perspective there is a lot of information about applications. Even for me (as non academic specialist) topics (apart from a paragraph about DNA analysis, where I lack background knowledge) are very good to follow.
I can advise this book to anyone who is interested in algae.
