We aim to provide everyone with accurate information about diatoms of the United States.
Expert contributors are submitting text and images for freshwater genera and North American species, including taxonomic and ecological information.
Diatom "visual guides" are included for all taxa. The guides illustrate key traits that distinguish a taxon (examples to the right). For many species, environmental response plots and geographic distribution maps are also included.
Our editorial review board is prioritizing taxa for treatment in species pages and ensuring the scientific merit of each submission.
