This book, jointly published by ABRS and the State Herbarium of South Australia, completes the account of the marine algae of this region. In format it is similar to earlier parts, with detailed species -level descriptions of the last three families of red algae. These descriptions are supplemented with copious line drawings of detailed cellular arrangements and lineages, and many excellent halftones of complete plants and sections of reproductive structures. Throughout, keys are provided to allow identification of taxa, and detailed synonymies and distributional data are provided. For each taxon the type citation and location of specimens is indicated, and for many there are discussions of variation and relationships.
