This volume, The Science of Algal Fuels (volume 25 of COLE), contains 26 chapters dealing with biofuels contributed by experts from numerous countries and covers several aspects of algal products, one being a€œoilgae from algae, a€ mainly oils and fuels for engines. Among the prominent algal groups that participate in this process are the diatoms and green algae (Chlorophyceae). Their metabolism and breeding play an important role in biomass and extraction of crude oil and algal fuel. There is a strong relation between solar energy influencing algal culture and the photobiology of lipid metabolism. Currently, many international meetings and conferences on biofuel are taking place in many countries, and several new books and proceedings of conferences have appeared on this topic. All this indicates that this field is a€œhota€ and in the forefront of applied bioscience.Current plans to get off oil, including the Pickens Plan, involve a transition taking decades (Cummings, 2010; Greene et al., 2010; Lindenberg et al., 2008; Pickens , 2010). Such models have many problems: (1) the cumulative financial, geopolitical, and security costs associated with prolonged use of imported oil; ...
