The AIDGAP Benthic Diatoms Identification Guide covers the genera of diatoms found in benthic habitats in rivers in the British Isles. The identification of the most common species are included.

Diatom identification is challenging, but with practice it becomes easier to recognise the main characters. Notes on sampling and laboratory preparation are also provided, along with comments on the ecology and environmental preferences for many of the taxa described.
