Caption: Spirogyra algae. Interference contrast light micrograph of filaments from Spirogyra sp. algae, showing its spiralling bands of chloroplasts (raised). Chloroplasts are the site of photosynthesis, the process of obtaining energy from sunlight. Spirogyra is a common freshwater alga. In favourable conditions it can grow rapidly, forming blooms that deprive other aquatic life of nutrients.
