With the Live Desmids Green Algae Culture, Class Size of 30 for biology and life science, investigate green algae, which are a division that includes both microscopic and macroscopic forms found in a remarkable diversity of habitats.
Desmids. Several species mixed. Bilaterally symmetrical cells composed of mirror-image halves. Unicellular, colonial or filamentous forms with conspicuous chloroplasts.
Green Algae includes both microscopic and macroscopic forms found in a remarkable diversity of habitats. The green algae are very common in aquatic and terrestrial environments and as endosymbionts among lichens, protozoans, and cnidaria.
