    Green algae have many similarities to land plants. It has many variety body types and the multicellular forms do not have cells separated into tissues‚ which is what divides green algae from land plants. Green algae are a very diverse group of freshwater algae. Many green algae form long filaments. The cells stay attached after they divide. Spirogyra can become so numerous they form dense mats of growth in surfaces of ponds‚ which is called pond scum. This pond scum is interesting to see through

    Algae are simple organisms that typically produce their own food through photo-synthesis. They are similar to higher plants‚ but they lack many of the distinct organs that you will find in a higher plant. The higher plants are believed to have evolved from algae‚ and algae are believed to have gotten their capacity for photosynthesis from cyanobacteria. Algae can be unicellular as well as multi-cellular. Large and complex forms found in the ocean are commonly referred to as seaweed and can look very

For three very important rationales‚ I stand in a strong affirmation for this bill‚ in which we will fund algae farming. First off‚ Algae farming can be farmed realistically anywhere. There are very few requirements for algae biofuel. All biofuels that are created from land plants have specific soil-quality requirements

These blooms often occur in the Gulf of Mexico and along Florida’s coast almost every summer and are almost always caused by one type of microscopic algae known as Karenia Brevis. When this alga accumulates it can wreck havoc on an ecosystem and has various detrimental side effects‚ not only does it affect the environment‚ but it also can

    Abstract This experiment tested the hypothesis that the pure algae populations of Ankistrodesmus and Chorella will show growth in the number of organisms‚ and the mixed population will establish a dominant species. Each population should also reach its carrying capacity. All of the populations had the same resources available. The sampling of 0.5ml of each population was used to count the number of organisms. A Neubauer slide and microscope will be needed to do this. From this count‚

The terms top-down and bottom-up in the context of ecology describe which trophic levels are enforcing population pressures on the others. Thus‚ the top-down mechanism of control holds that consumers are responsible for determining the abundance of
