Molecular and ecological data of terrestrial diatoms
The Hustedt Collection holds the scientific legacy of Friedrich Hustedt (1886-1968), one of the most important
scientists in diatomology in the first half of the 20th century. He described and documented almost 2,000 taxa.
An atlas of Hustedt's types with modern light microscopic photographs has been published in book form
[Simonsen, R. 1987: Atlas and Catalogue of the Diatom Types of Friedrich Hustedt, 1-3. Berlin].
