They thrive in a number of temperature levels, on the limits of pH values, in salt strategies, below UV radiation, dryness, heavy metals, anaerobic niches, below a variety of degrees of illuminations, and below hydrostatic strain. Authors talk about bio-diversely algal territories ecologically – the new springs with the thermophiles or acido-thermophiles; Antarctica, the Artic, and permafrost zones with their chilly fans (Psychrophiles); soda lakes with the alkaliphiles, saltine components with halophiles. as well as basic essays, Algal species mentioned intimately contain diatoms, Cyanidium, Galdieria, Dunaliella, and Chroococcidiopsis.

Seckbach and coworkers proposed an evolutionary line within the Cyanidiaceae from C. , 1983; Seckbach, 1992, 1994a, b, 1999). These symbiotic proposals based on new-old evidence shook the proponents of the compartmentalization model (Klein and Cronquist, 1967). At present, there are only few who advocate the nonsymbiotic concept, among them are Jensen (1994, 1999) and Nakamura (1999) (see also Seckbach, 1994b). ” For further data on eukaryogenesis, see Seckbach (1981, 1987, 1994b), Ebringer and Krajcˇovicˇ (1994), Nakamura (1999), and Lee and Kugrens (2000).

He spent his sabbatical periods in Tübingen (Germany), UCLA, and Harvard University, and served at Louisiana State University (LSU) (1997/1998) as the first selected occupant of the John P. Laborde endowed Chair for the Louisiana Sea Grant and Technology transfer, and as a visiting Professor in the Department of Life Sciences at LSU (Baton Rouge, LA). Recently, he spent 3 months in Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich with a DAAD fellowship from the German service of exchange academicians, where several forward steps of this volume have been performed.
