Species of green algae that are closely related to embryophytes are classified as charophytes while the remaining green algae are classified as chlorophytes. Like plants, charophytes have chlorophyll a and b, store carbohydrates as starch, have cell walls consisting of cellulose, and . The loss of photosynthesis is frequently associated with parasitic or pathogenic lifestyles, but it also can occur in free-living, plastid-bearing lineages. A common consequence of becoming nonphotosynthetic is the reduction in size and gene content of the plastid genome. In exceptional circumstances, it can even result in the complete loss of the plastid DNA ([ptDNA][1]) and its associated. Sexual reproduction was an early evolutionary innovation after the appearance of eukaryotic cells. It appears to have been very successful because most eukaryotes are able to reproduce sexually, and in many animals, it is the only mode of reproduction. And yet, scientists recognize some real disadvantages to sexual reproduction. This suggested that the anisotropy of expansion was built into the growth process at a fundamental level. Therefore, most subsequent work on growth ignored the specific value of growth-rate anisotropy. Figure 1 Measurements of growth anisotropy. A.

Nitrogen-fixing cyanobacteria are widespread among the filamentous, heterocyst forming genera (e.g. Anabaena, Nostoc) (Stewart, ). However, there are also several well documented examples of dinitrogen fixation among . The absence of gametes of the opposite sex can lead, in certain extreme cases to degradation of fertilisation and to the growth of new individuals from one of the two kinds of gametes. In any case, reproduction in algae generally occurs discretely and the specialised cells involved are difficult to see without a microscope.

The light that is absorbed may be used by the plant to power chemical reactions, while the reflected. Plant physiology is a subdiscipline of botany concerned with the functioning, or physiology, of plants. Closely related fields include plant morphology (structure of plants), plant ecology (interactions with the environment), phytochemistry (biochemistry of plants), cell biology, genetics, biophysics and molecular biology.. Fundamental processes such as photosynthesis, respiration, plant.   Green algae, Spirogyra (Chlorophyta), are found in a wide range of habitats including small stagnant water bodies, rivers, and streams. It is also found as a part of the vegetation found at the edges of large lakes and rivers. Spirogyra exists in a filamentous form which often forms masses that float near streams and ponds, buoyed by oxygen bubbles released during photosynthesis.

The plant body breaks into several parts or fragments and each such fragment develops into an individual. This type of vegetative reproduction is commonly met within filamentous forms, e.g., Ulothrix, Spirogyra, etc.

The fragmentation of colonies also takes place in several blue green algae, e.g., Aphanocapsa, Aphanothece, Nostoc, etc. Algae - Algae - Reproduction and life histories: Algae regenerate by sexual reproduction, involving male and female gametes (sex cells), by asexual reproduction, or by both ways.

Asexual reproduction is the production of progeny without the union of cells or nuclear material. Many small algae reproduce asexually by ordinary cell division or by fragmentation, whereas larger algae reproduce by. The following points highlight the three modes of reproduction in algae.

The modes are: 1. Vegetative 2. Asexual 3. Sexual. Mode # 1. Vegetative Reproduction: In this type, any vegetative part of the thallus develops into new individual.

It does not involve any spore. Blooms of blue-green algae (BBGA) can exhaust oxygen in the water and release toxins, which can severely affect the growth of other organisms.

Indeed blooms represent a prime agent of water quality deterioration [1], [2]. This book covers topics such as: evolution of sex and sexuality in algae; and, pigments in algae with their chemistry and the evolution of thallus in algae. absent According akinetes algae algal anisogamy antheridia apical arranged Asexual attached axis basal bearing becomes blue-green algae body Bold and Wynne branches brown called 5/5(9).

rich domain among the amino-terminal peptide of its members. The polypeptides may be related to the identified process of sexual reproduction.

Chlorophyta Chlorophyta (green algae) includes about species of mostly aquatic photosynthetic eukaryotic organisms. Green algae contain chlorophylls a.

The optimal temperature range for phytoplankton cultures is °C. If temperatures are higher than 35°C, it can be lethal for a number of algal species, especially green microalgae. Temperatures that are lower than 16°C will slow down the growth of algae.

Light also has an effect on the growth of algae: it must not be too strong or weak. Selected green algae and bryophytes were surveyed for the presence of resistant biomass and the percentages of resistant cell wall biomass were quantitatively determined.

Among the unusual aspects of. Harmful algal blooms are one of the consequences of the human impact on aquatic ecosystems, particularly the process of eutrophication. They can cause a variety of deleterious effects, including the poisoning of fish and shellfish, habitat disruptions for many organisms, water discolouration, beach fouling, and even toxic effects for humans.

In addition, the fossil record for some groups of algae has hindered evolutionary studies, and the realization that some algae are more closely related to protozoa or fungi than they are to other algae.

Therefore, comparison between diversified green hydra symbioses will also serve as useful materials for the study of the origin and the establishment of symbiosis. Taking together further coordinated investigations on both the two symbiotic system between green algae and hydra will provide an advance in the study of this field.

The green algae are among the major structural and photosynthetic constituents of desert crusts, along with cyanobacteria (often dominant), bryophytes, lichens, and fungi, and the physiology of these microscopic, single-celled green algae distributed within microbiotic crusts is practically impossible to study.

Introduction. Plants and animals are associated with their microbiota, a complex assortment of microorganisms. As example, in the human gut, bacteria play a major role in stimulating immune system development (Lee and Mazmanian, ; Littman and Pamer, ).Recently, the communication between gut microbiota and the central nervous system has been established (Mayer, ), along.

The green algae and land plants form a monophyletic lineage (the chlorophytes) that contains both protistan and higher taxa ([Graham, ][1]). An important issue regarding the evolution of this green lineage that still remains in question is the identity of the green algal (i.e.

flagellate). Cladophora (Figure ) is a green filamentous algae that is a member of the Ulvophyceae and is thus related to the sea lettuce (Ulva spp.). The genus Cladophora has one of the largest number of species within the macroscopic green algae and is also among the most difficult to classify taxonomically.

This is mainly due to the. Introduction. Seaweeds are increasingly viewed as an important alternative source of food, feed, fuel and livelihood for humans.

Global seaweed aquaculture has expanded at a rate of 8% per year in the past decade ().The combination of human population growth, stagnation in the world’s fisheries as a result of depleting fish stocks, and the high environmental impact of certain types of.

Physiology of the Fresh-Water Algae Physiology of the Fresh-Water Algae Krauss, R W By ROBERT W. KRAUSS5 Department of Botany, University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland From the viewpoint of the student of algal physiology, the topics which are justifiably part o f the field are so diverse as to preclude complete mastery.

All photosynthetic protists contain green chlorophyll but also contain other pigments (how you get the green, red, brown, and golden brown) A filamentous alga that lives in fresh water, often seen as the green scum on the surface of ponds and lakes.

Recent studies have indicated that nitrogen availability can be an important determinant of primary production in freshwater lakes and that herbivore growth can be limited by low dietary nitrogen availability. Furthermore, a lack of specific essential nitrogenous biochemicals (such as essential amino acids) might be another important constraint on the fitness of consumers.

Cyanobacteria; Cyanophyta; Cyanophyceae.Rather, green-algal eggs or zygotes are usually released into the water, so that fertilization and zygote devel opment are physically independent of the parent plant. The haploid and diploid components of green-algal life cycles can have no nutritional or developmental inter relationships.

Green algae thus lack embryos, a funda.Green algae contain chlorophylls a and b. They are in the division Chlorophyta. This is the largest and most diverse group of algae. It is found mostly in freshwaters and also on land (rocks, trees, and soil).

The structures are single cells (Micrasterias), filamentous algae, colonies (Volvox), and leaf-like shape (Thalli). Terrestrial plants.
