Significant early investigations on the taxonomy and distribution of marine microalgae in Australian seas included those of the Great Barrier Reef region, the Java
Sea, Sydney coastal waters, and the
Australia-wide netphytoplankton surveys notably of dinoflagellates by Wood. In the
past three decades major advances in plankton collection methodologies (finer mesh plankton nets, water bottle sampling, more delicate preservatives, enrichment cultures and satellite oceanography) and, notably, the use of electron microscopy for species identification, have
considerably improved our knowledge of marine microalgal communities in the Australian region. Comprehensive studies have now been puhlished on New South Wales coastal waters, East Australian Current eddies, the Coral Sea and the North West Shelf and Gulf of Carpentaria. An
estuarine diatom flora for the Swan River, Perth was completed hy John (1983), and marine
phytoplankton floras are also in preparation for Tasmanian and Bass Strait coastal waters.
