This AIDGAP identification guide covers most of the larger British brown seaweeds.

Intended for use with living specimens in the field, most seaweeds are keyed to species level where this is possible without a microscope. Littoral, sublittoral and rare species are all included. An introductory section describing the ecology of the brown seaweeds will help in interpreting patterns of distribution on the seashore.

AIDGAP produces simple and clearly written identification keys, aimed at non-specialist users from age 16+. The FSC is one of the UK's leading publishers of identification guides, ranging from easy to use fold-out charts through intermediate level AIDGAP guides, to specialist books such as the Synopses of the British Fauna and RES Handbooks.
