Algae: Yellow-greens Vaucheria 1. Live mostly in fresh water 2. Most are unicellular but some are  multicellular (colonial) 3. Most have two flagella 4. Chloroplast move in response to  changes in light intensity (avoiding  light damage) 5. Reproduction predominantly asexual  (fragmentation or spores)

Algae: Phylum Chlorophyta Volvox Chara 1. Most live in fresh water 2. Some are terrestrial 3. Have chlorophylls a and b 4. Store starch inside plastids Chlamydomonas

Algae: Class Charophyceae Chara 1. Unicellular, colonial and multicellular 2. Coleochaetales and Charales are the closest  relatives of plants among all algae 3. Charales form mineralized cell walls (hence  called stoneworts) 4. Have morphological features in common  with vascular plants (apical growth,  reproductive cells protected)
