Brown algae, from the phylum Phaeophyta (meaning "dusky plants"), is the most prevalent type of or yellow-brown in color, brown algae are found in the waters of both temperate or arctic climates. While not roots in the true sense, brown algae typically have root-like structures called "holdfasts" that are used to anchor the algae to a surface. Atkins () was an amateur botanist especially interested in scientific illustration and taxonomy. Her goal in producing Photographs of British Algae was to provide a visual companion to William Harvey's pioneering but unillustrated publication Manual of British Algae; to that end, Atkins's specimen titles follow Harvey's nomenclature. There are about species of red algae, most of which are of marine source. These are found in the intertidal and in subtidal to depths of up to 40, or occasionally, m. Red algae are considered as the most important source of many biologically active metabolites in comparison to the other algal class. Cytotoxic activity. These beach plants are found in an area called the upper beach. The area closer to the water, called the lower beach, does not have any plants. High tides and heavy surf make it very difﬁcult for plants to take root in the sand along the lower beach. Describe the alternation of generations seen in some marine algae, such as Ulva.
Marine Algae of California (Abbott & Hollenberg ), based on and expanding the range of G.M. Smith's Marine Algae of the Monterey Peninsula (), was the first complete seaweed flora for lists species of red, brown and green seaweeds, of which 15% are endemic to California (found nowhere else), 45% are restricted to the Pacific coast of North America, 20% are . The earliest algae specimens are in the Sir Hans Sloane Herbarium, the Museum's founding collection, with material dating from the early s to the mids. Of particular note are the collections of Adam Buddle, which are incorporated here and include seaweed specimens collected from UK shores in . Pyrrophyta (Fire algae) are single-celled algae. They are found in both the oceans and in fresh water. They use flagella to move around. Chlorophyta (Green algae) typically live in freshwater. Green algae have cell walls made of cellulose and are photosynthetic. Rhodophyta (Red algae) are mostly found in tropical marine environments. predominant in the Southern part of the littoral. Brown algae (Phaeophyta) were encountered in the Constanta city area (Punctaria) and in Vama-Veche (Cystoseira). During the past years, it became obvious that the ecosystem presents a marine algae excess, .
