Diatom shells are made primarily of thissilica
Macrocystis pyrifera is the scientific name of what?the giant kelp
The phylum that contains the green algaeChlorophyta
Caused when dinoflagellates reproduce in large numbers and cause a toxic conditionred tide
How do diatoms get their energy?they are photosynthetic autotrophs
What is a frustule?the clear shell of a diatom
What do radiolarians look like?spherical organisms with pseudopodia
What are cyanobacteria?blue-green bacteria that form stromatolites
Radiolarians have a shell made of thissilica
Foraminiferans are supported by thisa test of calcium carbonate
The phylum that contains the red algaeRhodophyta
Holdfasts are different than roots becauseThey do not absorb nutrients or water for the organism
The phylum that contains the brown algae Phaeophyta
Dinoflagellates can be easily identified because they have thesetwo flagella that are often perpendicular
Archaea are this type of organismchemotrophic extremophiles
The reason most of the ocean sediments near the poles are made of silicathis is where diatoms are abundant
What are seaweeds?multicellular algae
When they die, Foraminiferans leave behindcalcium
The Kingdoms Bacteria and Archaea are bothprokaryotic, and have a common ancestor
How do dinoflagellates get their energy?they are photosynthetic
Macrocystis has this characteristicit is the fasting growing organism on Earth
The plates that form the outside of a dinoflagellate are made up of thiscellulose
Diatomaceous Earth is made of thissediment from diatom remains
Archaea are prokaryotic, but they are more related to Eukaryotes and complex organisms than they are to other bacteria. (T/F)TRUE
The earliest life on Earth was likely thisprokaryotic
Foraminiferans capture their food usingpseudopodia, which are extensions of cytoplasm
The blades of laminarian kelp have channels and ridges on them to do thisincrease laminar flow and reduce turbulence
These color algae have phycobilins as their pigmentRed algae
These color algae have chlorophyll as their pigmentGreen algae
These color algae have fucoxanthin as their pigmentBrown algae
