All phaeophytes are multicellular and range in size from seaweed made up of filaments, such as the species Ectocarpus, to the giant kelp that form underwater forests. Among the largest of the kelp are members of the genera Laminaria, Macrocystis, and Nerocystis. Brown algae are so colored because of the presence of a brown pigment called fucoxanthin. Because the amount of this pigment can vary from species to species, phaeophyte species range in color from olive green to dark brown. Brown algae may undergo asexual or 55 A closer look At BActerIA, AlgAe, And ProtozoA Species of brown algae such as Laminaria digitata,, commonly known Caption TK as kelp, are harvested from kelp beds along rocky shores.

Phaeophyta: The Brown Algae This group of algae includes roughly 1,500 species worldwide. Most brown algae are marine, and they are found in cold temperate waters. Species of Fucus, or rockweed, live in the intertidal zones of rocky shorelines. There are also some tropical species, such as the free-floating masses of Sargassum. All phaeophytes are multicellular and range in size from seaweed made up of filaments, such as the species Ectocarpus, to the giant kelp that form underwater forests. Among the largest of the kelp are members of the genera Laminaria, Macrocystis, and Nerocystis.

The dinoflagellates are exceedingly diverse. Some dinoflagellates use photosynthesis to create their own food—and are therefore autotrophic—and others are heterotrophs. Some species may exist as phytoplankton (free-floating autotrophs), while others may live inside other organisms, such as sponges or jellyfish, in a symbiotic relationship. Like the diatoms, photosynthetic dinoflagellates are extremely important sources of nutrients for larger organisms in aquatic environments. Under certain conditions, such as warm water temperatures and increased nutrients, dinoflagellate populations can explode, or bloom.
