This is the best available seaweed identification guide I know for beginners.

The photographs – of 70 common seaweeds, are excellent. It includes:

  • Introduction

  • Preparation and identification of specimens
  • Key to seaweed species
  • Summarised key to species
  • Summary of species characteristics
  • Species descriptions and images
