At the moment, some basic information about diatoms can be found on the ADIAC site. Our ambition is to open a new series of pages about diatoms and these will be completed as soon as possible. At the moment, you will find that the links down the left-hand margin are 'dead'. However, the 'Search' facility works, providing access to older parts of Algae World. The Entry page has a Search facility covering the ADIAC and DIADIST sites, as well as Algae World.
A page describing and illustrating the discovery of diatom in 1703 is available
