Open Directory - Science: Biology: Flora and Fauna: Protista: Chrysophyta
- Information from MicrobWiki on this phylum of unicellular marine or freshwater protists, members of which include the diatoms (class Bacillariophyta), golden algae (class Chrysophyceae), and yellow-green algae (class Xanthophyceae).
- Information from Wikipedia on this order of green algae which have a variety of symmetric shapes which provide a basis for their classification.
- Article by Wim van Egmond on these organisms with many excellent photographs of various species.
- Information on this unicellular organism of the kingdom Protista characterized by a silica shell of often intricate and beautiful sculpturing.
- Research project by John Becker provides plenty of information on these organisms and a modest photograph gallery.
- Research project by Jennifer Shin provides information on this organism and diatoms in general.
- Information from Wikipedia on this large group of unicellular flagellate algae, the Chrysophytes, found mostly in fresh water.
Introduction to the Chrysophyta
- Brief discussion of the group, also called golden algae, which is found in fresh water, particularly lakes. Includes information on some subgroups.
- Provides a list of all the species included in the orders Bacillariales, Biddulphiales, Coscinodiscales, Fragilariales and Rhizosoleniales.
- Some quick facts on these organisms and a scanning electron micrograph of Emiliana huxleyi.
- Some quick facts about these organisms and a micrograph of a species of Actinoptychus.
- Some quick facts on these organisms with information on the genus Dictyocha and a photomicrograph of an unidentified species.
- Information from Wikipedia on this small group of unicellular algae, found in marine environments. Members of the only genus, Dictyocha, have one golden-brown chloroplast and a long flagellum.
The Silicoflagellate Dictyocha
- Photographic study by Rene van Wezel of this member of the marine phytoplankton.
- An illustrated article by Richard T Carter on these interesting protists.
- Image of this species which forms small colonies.
Vaucheria in Connecticut
- Researchers at Trinity College have been investigating the mud-stabilizing yellow-green alga Vaucheria in freshwater wetlands and salt-marshes for several years. Links also to other Vaucheria research.
