Compare/contrastthe structure, size, color, motility etc. of twoof these species of algae. Then find five interesting facts about algae. Be sure to cite your sources!Euglena gracilis(a)Micrasterias rotata(b)StructureOval/Rod-shapedCircular/SphericalSizeLength- 33 umWidth - 4 umLength- 36 umWidth - 35 umColorGreenGreenMotilityWhip-like FlagellumSecretes mucilage from pores for motilitya.b. 1. Over 100,000 species of diatoms exist making them highly diverse, and the most abundant algae in the open ocean (Reece et al., 2011). 2. Diatoms are so abundant, they absorb carbon dioxide during photosynthesis, for this reason many scientists combating the effects of global warming. Scientists are considering this ability of Diatoms as apotential strategy (Reece et al., 2011). 3. Some algae such as Laminaria, named “Kombu” by the japanese, is used in many popular dishes and cuisines (Reece et al., 2011). 4. It’s even estimated that 30% of photosynthesis reactions occur within diatoms, algae, and other protists (Reece et al., 2011). 5. In the Bahamas, red algae has been found at depths of 260m, and depend on water currents to carry-out their fertilization (Reece et al., 2011).
11. Using the digital images you acquired, thoroughly compare and contrast the structure, size and number of red and white blood cells. In which way is their structure/size/number a reflection of their function? Be sure to cite any sources used to answer this question. Also include a digital image of the blood cells present in the
