Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Yarkon River (Hebrew: , Nahal HaYarkon, Arabic, Nahr el-Auja), also Yarqon River, is a river in central Israel. The source of the Yarkon is at Tel Afek (Antipatris), north of Petah Tikva. It flows west through Gush Dan into the Mediterranean Sea. The Yarkon is the largest coastal river in Israel, at 27.5 km in length. The Yarkon formed the southern border of the vilayet of Beirut during the Ottoman period. The river became increasingly polluted after the 1950s, many blaming this on the construction of the Reading Power Station which is situated near its mouth. When the river''s headwaters were diverted to the Negev via the National Water Carrier for irrigation purposes, the state of the Yarkon declined. As sewage replaced the flow of fresh water, habitats were destroyed and flora and fauna disappeared. This was exacerbated by continuous discharges of industrial effluents and municipal sewage into the rivers, which allowed algae to multiply.

Algae and Cyanobacteria in Extreme Environments

Algae and Cyanobacteria in Extreme Environments is a unique collection of essays, contributed by leading scientists from around the world, devoted to algae - and some related microbes - observed in unexpected harsh habitats, which it seems are an oasis or Garden of Eden for these organisms. This timely book on Extremophilic algae, including its especially impressive micrographs, may provide clues about the edges of life on Earth and possibly elsewhere in the universe. Defining locations from the anthropomorphic point of view, the environments explored ranges from severe and distant to 'normal' places. The algae discussed, microbial oxygenic phototrophs, are classified into various categories according to their habitats. They thrive in various temperature ranges, at the limits of pH values, in salt solutions, under UV radiation, dryness, heavy metals, anaerobic niches, under various levels of illuminations, and under hydrostatic pressure. Authors discuss bio-diversely algal territories ecologically - the hot springs with the thermophiles or acido-thermophiles; Antarctica, the Arctic, and permafrost zones with their cold lovers (Psychrophiles); soda lakes with the alkaliphiles, saltine areas with halophiles. In addition to general essays, Algal species discussed in detail include diatoms, Cyanidium, Galdieria, Dunaliella, and Chroococcidiopsis. This volume is a must for students of the field of biodiversity, as well as those in phycology, ecology and general biological research. TOC:Foreword, Richard Castenholz. Preface, Joseph Seckbach. Introduction to the algal world, Meltem Conk-Dalay. Acknowledgement, Joseph Seckbach. List of Authors and addresses.PART 1: General Introduction.- Oxygenic photosynthetic microorganisms in extreme environments: possibilities and limitation, Joseph Seckbach and Aharon Oren.PART 2: Phototrophs at high and low light.- Effects of ultraviolet radiation on cyanobacteria and their protective mechanisms, Bagmi Pattanaik, Rhena Schumann and Ulf Karsten. The hidden life of algae underground, Werner Reisser. Meromictic lakes as habitats for protists: life in the chemocline and below? Dag Kaveness and Finn Løvhøiden. Marine phototrophs in the twilight zone, Noga Stambler and Zvy Dubinsky.PART 3: Phototrophs in the marine environment.- Biology of the chlorophyll D-containing cyanobacterium Acaryochloris marina, Michael Kühl, Min Chen and A.W.D. Larkum. Phylogenetics, molecular biology and ecological impacts of a group of highly unusual protists: the dinoflagellates, Shauna Murray. Diatoms: Living in a contructal environment, Frithjof Sterrenburg, Richard Gordon, Mary Ann Tiffany and Stephen Nagy. The margin of the sea: survival at the top of the tides, David Garbary.
