This is a quick pictorial gallery of the freshwater algal genera that feature in ALGKEY, with genera organised into the following 12 artificial groups based on ‘general habit’ (i.e. not reflecting real taxonomic relationships). Note that some pages contain a large number of pictures and will take a long time to download.
