Your algae interpreted for you!

Freshwater and marine algae represent an important component of aquatic biomass.  The assemblage of species present is determined by the environmental conditions in which they lived.  Sediments deposited in an aquatic environment will often contain the mineralized component of some of these algae which allows the interpretation of past environmental conditions as well as the time period during which the sediments were deposited due to the often rapid evolution of species.

Algal Analysis offers services based around the algae present in your samples, ranging from reporting species present to providing environmental information about these species and what this says about the conditions in which they lived.  Advice pertaining to planning sampling procedures and methods, summary reports, and environmental and biostratigraphic analyses are also available.
