With the Live Oedogonium 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.
Oedogonium. Unbranched filaments which grow anchored to solid substrates by a single holdfast cell. Also grows as an epiphyte on aquatic angiosperms.
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. Food is stored as starch and pigments in the division are chlorophylls a and b, carotenes and xanthophylls.
