green-algae

One day at a local wildlife refuge I was hiking and found this marvellous patch of green algae. Algae are simple plants ranging from microscopic (micro-algae) to large seaweeds (macro-algae). They provide the foundation for the aquatic food chain supporting the fisheries in the ocean and rivers and produce 70% of the air we breathe.
