Anyone happen to own this book? Was wondering your thoughts if you own it. Plus if you know of an excellent Diatom book. I am aware of Schmidts Atlas.

Yes, good book. It can be confusing at first as it shows very few example species from each genus (sometimes only one). So you may not find the exact diatom you're looking for, but this is a really good way of learning the distinguishing features that get you an ID down to genus level. The taxonomy is a bit more up to date than Schmidts too, but diatom taxonomy is an utter mess and no book is fully up to date. Latest names and classifications are scattered across thousands of academic papers that would cost $millions to buy (if you could find them).

Diatoms for me are overwhelming. But an interesting research project that was written aout in the December 2013 issue of InFocus, the Procedings of the Royal microscopy Society in which electron microscope stubs were launched into the atmosphere with balloons. Particles were found at high altitude that had no business being there and some exhibited diatom like frustrules.
Makes me think of the opening sequence of the remake of "invasion of the Body Snatchers."
