Communities of diatoms living on sand or mud

°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°

Being an amateur diatomist, I use currently various reference books (see Bibliography) for diatom systematics, but, living in a small village in western Brittany, I have difficulties to consult recent publications and books. So 
    - At the present time, I have been unable to name several species that I have observed,
       - The names that I have used for some species likely are not up to date, but rather they correspond to obsolete ones.
For these reasons, any correction, suggestion and criticism are encouraged and will be welcome (maurice.loir@orange.fr).
