 They can be defined as
the small autotrophs
that fail to show any
cellular differentiaton &
their sex organs are
unicellular & if
multicellular all cells
are fertile
DISTINGUISHING FEATURES:
 They are photoautotrophs
 They primarily inhabit aquatic habitats
 The vegetative body does not show any
differentiation into various tissue systems
 They show progressive complexity in
reproduction
 They do not develop embryo after fusion of
gamates during sexual reproduction
 Range in size from microscopic to single celled
organisms to large seaweed
 Many species occur as single cells others as
multicellular
 Algal cells are eucaryotic
 Study of algae is called phycology
 Cellwall is thin and rigid
 Motile algae such as euglena have flexible cell
membrane called periplasts
 Cell walls of many algae are surrounded by a flexible
gelatinous outer matrix
 A discrete nucleus is present

discs
GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS:
Thallus organisation
Cell structure
Algal flagella
Algal pigments
Algal nutrition
Food reserves
Reproduction
1) THALLUS ORGANISATION:
a)Unicellular algae:
 single cells, motile with flagellate
(like Chlamydomonas and
Euglena) or nonmotile (like
Diatoms).
 Occor in all groups except
carophycae of phylum chlorophyta
and pheophyta.
 Rhizopodial
 Flagellate
 Spiral fillamentous
 Nonmotile
b)Colonial algae:
Motile or non motile algae may form a colony by
aggregation of the products of cell division with in a
mucillagenous mass.
 Coenobial :
The colony is formed with a definite shape, size
and arrangement of cells.
Ex: volvox
 Palmelloid :
Irregular arrangement of cells varying in number
,shape and size.
Ex: Chlamydomonas , Tetraspora
 Dendroid:
Looks like microscopic tree due to union of
mucilagenous threads present at base of each cell.
Ex: Chrysodendron
 Rhizopodial colony:
Cells are united through rhizopodia
Ex: Chrysidiastrum
c)Filaments algae:
 Daughter cells remain attached
after cell division and form a cell
chain
 Adjacent cells share cell wall
(distinguish them from linear
colonies!)
 May be unbranched (uniseriate
such as Zygnema and Ulthrix) or
branched (regular mutiseriate such
as Cladophora or unreguler
mutiseriate such as Pithophora).
10
Pithophora
Cladophora
d) Coenocytic or siphonaceaous:
one large, multinucleate cell
without cross walls such as
Vaucheria
e) Parenchymatous:
mostly macro-scopic algae
with tissue of undifferentiated cells
and growth originating from a
meristem with cell division in three
dimensions such as Ulva
2)CELL STRUCTURE
 Eukaryotic characterised by presence of well organised
nucleus and membrane bound organelles like plastids
,mitochondria and Golgi bodies
 An intermediate form called mesokaryotic occurs in
Dianophyceae which shows both eukaryotic (nucleus with
nuclear membrane & chromosomes) and prokaryotic
characters( basic proteins are absent)
 Some do not has true cell wall Ex: euglena, gymnodinium &
possess a membrane called pellicle around cytoplasm
 Motile flagella possess a pigmented spot known as eye-spot
or stigma(swimming)
 Cell wall is with mixed carbohydrates and substances like
alginic acid , fucoidin , fucin & hemicelluloses present
 Mitochondria, Golgi complex , Endoplasmic reticulum
present.
3)ALGAL FLAGELLA
 Found in all algae except Rhotophyceae
 The main function is motility
 They are of 2 types
 Whiplash or acronematic-possess smooth surface
 Tinsel or pleuronematic-covered by fine filamentous
appendages called as mastigonemes or flimmers
 Tinsel is divided into 3 types
 Pantonematic-mastigonemes arranged in two
opposite rows or radially
 Pantocronematic-Pantonematic flagellum with a
terminal fibril
 Stichonematic-mastigonemes develop only on one
side of the flagellum
4)ALGAL PIGMENTS
-Distinct chlorplast, nuclear region
and complex organelles.
- Thylakoids are grouped into grana
pyrenoids are centers of carbon
dioxide fixation within the
chloroplasts of algae. Pyrenoids
are not membrane-bound
organelles, but specialized areas
of the plastid that contain high
levels of ribulose-1,5-
bisphosphate carboxylase /
oxygenase
granum with
a
Stack of
thylakoids
pyrenoid
 The pigments are within membrane bound organelles
called plastids
 May be leucoplasts (colourless plastids) or chromoplasts
(coloured plastids)
 Chromoplasts- contain chlorophyll a and b
 Chromatophores -contain only chlorophyll a
 Types - Chlorophylls(5), xanthophylls(20), carotenes(5)
and phycobillins (7)
 Chlorophyll a present in all
 Xanthophylls(yellow/brown) present in chlorophyceae and
pheophyceae
 B carotene present in most algae
 Phycobillins are water soluble red(phycoerythrin) and
blue(phycocyanin) confined to rhodophyceae
5)ALGAL NUTRITION:
 Photo autotrophic and synthesis their own food
from carbondioxide and water
 Aquatic forms obtain carbon dioxide and water by
diffusion and osmosis
 Aerials obtain water from damp substratum and
carbon dioxide from air
 They also synthesis oil and protiens from
carbohydrates
6)FOOD RESERVES
 Food materials accumulated as polysaccharides
 True starch-seen in two algal divisions chlorophyta
and charophyta
 Floridean starch- found in rhodophyta
 Laminarin- found in brown algae
 Paramylon- found in euglenoids
 Leucosin-peculiar to xanthophyta ,
bacillariophyta & chrysophyta
 Fats occur as reserved food in appreciable
amounts in the cells of xanthophyta ,
bacillariophyta & chrysophyta
7)REPRODUCTION IN ALGAE
MOST REPRODUCE BOTH SEXUALLY AND
ASEXUALLY
 Most sexual reproduction is triggered by environmental
stress
 Asexual Reproduction
 Mitosis
 Sexual Reproduction
 Meiosis
 Zoospores
 Plus and minus gametes
 Zygospore
REPRODUCTION IN ALGAE
Vegetative
Cell
divisions/Fragmentation
=part of the filament
breaks off from the rest
and forms a new one.
Asexual Reproduction
.
Sexual-
Gametes
 ISOGAMY-Both gametes have flagella and similar in size and morphology.
 ANISOGAMY-Gametes have flagella but are dissimilar in shape and size. One
gamete is distinctly smaller than the other one.
 OOGAMY-gamete with flagella (sperm) fuses with a larger, non flagellated
gamete (egg).
•Monecious: both gametes produced by the same
individual
•Diecious: male and female gametes are produced by
different individuals
•Homothallic: gametes from one individual can fuse
(self-fertile)
•Heterothallic gametes from one individual cannot fuse
(self-sterile)
•Conjugation: a special type of reproduction. The entire
cell serve as a gametes and the cell content are
transported passively between two cells taking part in
sexual reproduction
REPRODUCTION IN MULTICELLULAR
ALGAE
 Oedogonium reproduction
 Antheridium -release flagellated
sperm that swim to the oogonium
 Oogonium - houses the zygote
which is a diploid spore
▪ The spore undergoes meiosis
and produces 4 haploid
zoospores. One of the four
cells becomes a root like
holdfast the others divide and
become a new filament.
oogonium
holdfast

Beneficial Aspects of Algae
ROLE OF ALGAE TO DETECT
ENVIRONMENT POLLUTION
 Indicator of pollution - algae blooms can occur when too
much nitrogen and phosphorus enter a waterway.
 Algae are ideally suited for water quality assessment
because they have rapid reproduction
rates and very short life cycles, making them valuable
indicators of short-term impacts.
 Algae can be used to treat both municipal and
industrial wastewater.
 Algae play a major role in aerobic treatment of
waste in the secondary treatment process.
 Algae - based municipal wastewater treatment
systems are mainly used for nutrient removal
(removal of nitrogen and phosphorous).
 Algae have the ability to accumulate the heavy
metals and thereby remove toxic compounds from
the wastewater. In some cases, algae also play a
role in the removal of pathogens in the tertiary
treatment stage.
ALGAE USAGE IN SEWAGE
TREATING PLANTS
ALGAE IN FILTER PLANTS
 An algae scrubber filters water by moving water
rapidly over a rough, highly illuminated surface,
which causes algae to start growing in large
amounts.
 As the algae grow, they consume nutrients such as
inorganic nitrate,
inorganic phosphate, nitrite, ammonia,
and ammonium from the water.
ALGAE ROLE IN TREATING HEALTH PROBLEMS
 Ulva Can be used to treat goiter; reduce fever,
ease pain, induce urination
 Codium Can be used to treat urinary diseases,
treat edema,
 SargassumCan be used to treat cervical
lymphadenitis, edema;
 Porphyra Can be used to treat goiter, bronchitis,
tonsillitis and cough
 Gelidium Laxative; can be used to treat tracheitis,
gastric diseases and hemorrhoids; can be used to
extract agarinishes inflammation; reduces fever;
HARMFUL EFFECTS OF ALGAE
 Several species are parasitic on higher plants
 Green algae cephaleuros attacks leaves of
tea,coffee,pepper causing considerable damage
 Some algae live in the roots and fleshy parts of
higher plants but not harmed
 Acrylicacid is produced by a unicellular algae in
plankton act as extracellular inhibitors its shown by
chemical analysis
 Some planktonic algae produce toxins which are
lethal to fish and other animals these toxins are
extracellular liberated from algae by bacterial
decomposition of algal blooms
