Caption

Algae. Scanning electron micrograph of a selection of algae from a lake in Vietnam. The term "algae" covers many different organisms capable of producing oxygen through photosynthesis (the process of harvesting light energy from the sun to generate carbohydrates). These organisms are not necessarily closely related. However, certain features unite them, while distinguishing them from the other major group of photosynthetic organisms: the land plants. Anabaena (blue) spirulina (red) and a diatom are shown here. Magnification: x 2000 when printed at 10cm wide. Specimen collected from Vietnam courtesy of Mike Allen, Plymouth Marine Laboratory.
