Caption: Laminaria hyperborea, a brown marine algae from cooler waters that turns greenish when exposed on the shore. The algae is divided into three structurally distinct parts; a branched holdfast (bottom) which provides firm attachment to the substrate, usually rock, a stemlike supportative part called the stipe & the leaflike structure called the lamina, where photosynthetic pigments are stored. Together with the chlorophyll pigments, the brown algae contain fucoxanthin, which is responsible for the brown colour. The upper part of the lamina or blade is split into ribbons offering less resistance to the movement of the water.
