Welcome to the ISDR website

We are a scientific society with the goal of bringing together and supporting all those interested in diatoms. Whether you are an amateur, professional, technician, researcher, consultant, student, academic, or retired, we welcome you to our organization. We aim to increase awareness of the role and importance of diatoms among scientists and the general public and to encourage research across fields of ecology and paleoecology, systematics and evolution, biomonitoring, biotechnology, physiology and molecular biology. We publish the journal, Diatom Research, through Taylor and Francis. Our endeavours require sharing, communication, networking, and collaboration across disciplines. We, the ISDR, are here to facilitate and promote expertise, knowledge, and indispensable skills concerning diatoms.
