Green Algae

Members of the Kingdom Protista, algae are most common in aquatic habitats, but occur in nearly every environment. They range in size from microscopic to giant kelp that reach 200 feet (60 meters) in length. Algae produce a significant percentage of the Earth's oxygen, are the base of the food chain for nearly all aquatic life, and provide food and industrial products for humans.
