Microalgae are particularly interesting as a source of nutraceuticals because algae can produce a number of biomolecules with bioactive properties, such as beta carotene, lutein, astaxanthin, chlorophyll, phycobiliprotein, and polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are useful for . Present and future on molecular biology of useful Seaweeds (Proceedings of the 14th Natural History symposium Nov. 29, ). 96 p., num. figs & tables, wrps (Nat. Hist. Res. Sp. Issue 8); BW € Thus, the book is useful both for getting some idea of what algae you find, and for helping to confirm accuracy of photo-less dichotomous keys. It is especially useful for beginners, although those experienced in algae will be able to recognize most of the species without it since there are few species on the Pacific Coast/5(23). Concepts of Botany Algae (PDF 21P) This note contains explanation of algae, structure of alage and its classification. The contents of this documents are Dichotomous Key to Freshwater Algae, Groups of Cyanobacteria & Algae, Dinoflagellates, Euglenoids, Brown, Golden brown, and Yellow brown Algae .

Abstract. Algae have been used as human food for thousands of years in all parts of the world. The most commonly consumed macroalgae include the red algae Porphyra (nori, kim, laver), Asparagopsis taxiformis (limu), Gracilaria,Chondrus crispus (Irish moss) and Palmaria palmata (dulse), the kelps Laminaria (kombu), Undaria (wakame) and Macrocystis, and the green algae Caulerpa . Algae can convert atmospheric nitrogen to ammonia, which can be used by plants. They also produce natural pigments, which can be used as dyes. These natural pigments have the potential of substituting chemical dyes in the future. Brown algae is a source of alginic acid, which is used as a thickening, stabilizing, and emulsifying agent in ice. The key to algae’s potential as a renewable fuel source involves the increase of algal biomass productivity per acre. Some researchers say algae could be 10 or even times more productive than traditional bioenergy crops. Achieving high productivity in real-world systems is a key challenge to realizing the promise of sustainable and. The book also covers topics such as metabolic engineering and molecular biology for algae for fuel production, life cycle assessment and scale-up and commercialization. It is highly useful and helps you to plan new research and design new economically viable processes for the production of clean fuels from algae.

Textbook of algae by Sharma, O. P., , Tata McGraw edition, in English. This book is a compendium of knowledge on the useful properties of algae in the context of application as a useful component of innovative natural products. It presents all aspects of industrial applications of macroalgae biomass derived from the natural environment. There has been an increased interest from people about producing an inexpensive and useful guide for those who want to grow algae at home. There seem to be a few of books out there for the more advanced student, but very few books for inexperienced people. This book bridges that gap and has been written for those who have little experience. An example of a harmful algae is cyanobacteria, which is a photosynthetic prokaryote and is similar to bacteria. Presence of excess nutrients, such as nitrogen and phosphorous (among other factors.
