Chlorophyta

the green algae, which constitute the largest division of algae, ranging from microscopic unicellular forms which are nonmobile or have flagella (see FLAGELLUM), to large forms with a flattened THALLUS. Reproduction may be asexual (see CELL DIVISION, FRAGMENTATION, ZOOSPORE) or sexual (see ANISOGAMY, ISOGAMETE). They occur terrestrially in damp places such as tree trunks, in fresh water or in the marine environment.

At the same time, the percentage of predominantly metaphytic (not attached) chlorophytes and the total number of species decreased with depth.
However, the hydrological periods altered the dynamics of periphytic algal community that was dominated by diatoms, cyanobacteria and chlorophytes in the dry period, with greater dominance of species of the diatoms.
Contribution of chlorophytes increased in October 2009 (11%) and February 2010 (19%) coincided with increased river discharge (Figure 2 and 6).
In addition, a neighbor-joining (NJ) tree of CYPs displayed eukaryotic origin of CpCYP and divided four major clades as follows: CYP A clade (including dinoflagellates Prorocentrum minimum and Alexandrium fundyense and bivalve Azumapecten farreri), CYP B clade (including chlorophyte Bathycoccus prasinos and dinoflagellate Pfiesteria piscicida), CYP C clade (fungi Beauveria bassiana and Metarhizium rileyi), and CYP D (including fungus Beauveria bassiana and bivalve Hyriopsis schlegelii) (Figure 4).
This trend is supported by studies run with the chlorophytes Dunaliella salina (Lamers et al., 2012) and Chlorella zofingiensis (Mulders et al., 2014) and with the haptophyte Isochrysis galbana (Roopnarain et al., 2014), among many others.
(27%), unidentified small (d = 5-7 [micro]m) flagellates (12%), chlorophytes (10% at DG1 and 6% at DG7), and cyanobacteria (8% at DG1 and 3% at DG7).
While living, many tropical LBFs form symbioses with a range of marine algae including dinoflagellates, diatoms, red algae (rhodophytes), green algae (chlorophytes), and cyanobacteria (Lee, 2006).
Others, such as chlorophytes, filamentous browns, and some unicells, regenerate from overwintering fragments.
A proxy for FLH at daily time scale is an arithmetic average of NOBM chlorophytes and cyanobacteria.
Fish consumed a wide array of food items such as algae (Chlorophytes), terrestrial plants (fragments of root, stem, leaves and seeds), aquatic arthropods (fragments of Diptera, Ephemeroptera, Trichoptera and Coleoptera larvae and pupae), terrestrial arthropods (fragments of Coleoptera, Hymenoptera, Hemiptera and Diptera), fish scales and sediment (sand and pebbles).
Chlorophytes were present in the Bay of Saint Louis and in the Mississippi Sound but absent in the MS Bight.
