- Chytridiomycota This phylum is commonly known as the green algae.
- It exists as a brown to black discoloration of the shingle and is caused by an algae known as Gloeocapsa.
- As the algae breaks down the shingles, the granules that protect the shingle are loosened and begin to fall off.
- Most of these shingles have the additional attribute of resisting the growth of algae (commonly called fungus), especially in damp regions.
- Mollusks use them to chew food and to scrape algae from rocks.
- Zoospore s: mobile spores that move by means of one or more flagella, and can be found in some algae and fungi.
- Zoospores: mobile spores that move by means of one or more flagella, and can be found in some algae and fungi.
- Y Z Zoospores A motile flagellated spore that serves as a means of asexual reproduction among certain algae, fungi, and protoctists.
- The fungi obtain carbohydrates from the algae, which are photosynthetic and contribute the green color to the lichen thallus.
- Thallus - The leaf-like bodies of algae.
- The central portion of a thallus in certain lichens and red or brown algae.
- Secondary pigments are also like those of terrestrial plants and it is thought that the green algae are the ancestors of terrestrial plants.
- Most algae, fungi, and microbes are no longer considered to be in the plant kingdom.
- Some taxonomists advocate including the Chlorophyta (green algae) in the Plant kingdom.
- Because fungi can't produce their own food (photosynthesis) they sometimes form symbiotic relationships with algae.
- Giant viruses are nucleocytoplasmic large DNA viruses (NCLDVs) that infect algae (phycodnaviruses) and amoebae (Mimivirus).
- Reproductive spores are formed in many eukaryotic organisms, such as plants, algae and fungi, during their normal reproductive life cycle.
- Studies are being conducted on the acquiring of secondary metabolites in sea hares, including metabolites from algae in Aplysia dactylomela.
- Sea hares appear to accumulate most secondary metabolites from red algae (Rogers, 2000).
- Order Anaspidea Shell reduced to flat plate; feed on large seaweed rather than microscopic algae; sea hares (Aplysiidae); 1 other small family.
- Most tadpoles are herbivorous, subsisting on algae and plants.
- The Aplysiidae are herbivorous, eating a variety of red, green or brown algae and eelgrass.
- One major problem all over the planet that has resulted from the use of synthetic fertilizers is the increased growth of algae in lakes and water reservoirs.
- Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae found in most lakes and ponds.
- In this way they filter plankton, red and blue-green algae, insects, fish, mollusks, and small crustaceans from the water.
- The cyanobacteria (also referred to as blue-green algae) have chlorophyll a similar to green plants and are photosynthetic autotrophs (Figure 2.2).
- Surprisingly, the blue-green algae are also food for the fungi.
- To grow plants that (naturally) produce oils, such as algae, or jatropha.
- Examples of possible sources for sustainable aviation fuel are: algae, camelina, halophytes, jatropha, and non-food cellulose.
- The Archaeplastida, or Plantae, comprises glaucophytes, red algae, green algae and plants.
- In general it cannot be assumed this means all plants, algae through flowering plants.
- Hydra have a symbiotic association with another type of algae that will be discussed briefly.
- Photosynthesis occurs in plants, algae, and many species of Bacteria, but not in Archaea.
- In 1866, E.H. Haeckel, a German zoologist, suggested the name Protista to include all unicellular organisms (bacteria, algae, fungi, and protozoa).
- Some species of red algae have a complex triphasic alternation of generations.
- Alternation of generations, where the algae alternates between gametophyte and sporophyte generations, is common among the multicellular green algae.
- It includes most of the fungi that combine with algae to form lichens, and the majority of fungi that lack morphological evidence of sexual reproduction.
- This cycle, from gametophyte to gametophyte, is the way in which plants and many algae undergo sexual reproduction.
- This cycle, from gametophyte to gametophyte, is the way in which all land plants and many algae undergo sexual reproduction.
- Many algae and some fungi, for example ascomycetes and water moulds, also have antheridia during their reproductive stages.
- Various members of the algae that reproduce sexually also display alternation of generations, producing sperms and eggs in antheridia and oogonia.
- Hydrogen gas is produced by some bacteria and algae and is a natural component of flatus.
- Higher plants and fungi do not produce flagellate cells, but the closely related green algae and chytrids do.

- Most algae, fern, mosses and some vascular plants go through these separate phases in their life cycle.
- A multicellular sporophyte generation or phase is present in the life cycle of all land plants and in some green algae.
- Spores form part of the life cycles of many plant s, algae, fungi and some protozoan s.
- Lead adversely affects algae, invertebrates, and fish.
- Thus the periphyton community comprises bacteria, fungi, protozoa, algae, zooplankton and other invertebrates.

- Microbiologists investigate the growth and characteristics of microscopic organisms such as bacteria, algae, or fungi.
- Plankton: Microscopic organisms like algae and protozoa that drift on the oceans' currents.
