Welcome and Aims

Notulae Algarum is an on-line only journal published by AlgaeBase as part of its services to the Phycological Community. There is no charge for publication.

It is intended for brief notes (generally 1-4 pages) to rectify nomenclatural and taxonomic issues quickly, and to report briefly on other phycological matters. Even a few lines is acceptable to correct a nomenclatural issue. Please use the Word template for submissions and save a compatible with all versions.

“Compared to higher-plant taxonomists, phycologists include more than their fair share of workers who are either unaware of certain provisions [of the International Code of Nomenclature] or choose to ignore them.” (P.C. Silva in Hegewald & Silva: Annotated catalogue of Scenedesmus 1988: vii).

All submissions will be initially assessed by the Editor and if deemed suitable will be sent for refereeing to one or more member of the Editorial Board. The decision of the Editor is final.


Submissions are now being taken. Please ensure that all submissions meet the requirements of the Instructions for Authors:
