The British Phycological Society
The British Phycological Society was founded in 1952 to advance the study of algae. The results of its research are disseminated in a variety of publications including the European Journal of Phycology. In 2003 the Society published A Check-list and Atlas of the Seaweeds of Britain and Ireland in collaboration with the Biological Records Centre at CEH Monks Wood. The work on Irish seaweeds is coordinated by Professor Michael Guiry, working from Martin Ryan Institute, NUI Galway. He manages Algaebase, a huge online database of the world's algae.
