As very simple organisms, they have no roots, stems and leaves. Their sexual organs are not found in protective coverings. In terms of physiology, they are basically autotrophic with all their materials from inorganic sources and photosynthetic producing complex carbon compounds from CO2 and light energy. Some algae are secondarily heterotrophic but retaining fundamental genetic affinities with their photosynthetic relatives. They include both prokaryotes and eukaryotes.

Several studies have indicated that DMS emission demonstrates a significant effect on the magnitude of the earth’s cloud cover, influencing the planet’s climate in the process (Charlson et al., 1987; Watson and Liss, 1998). Specifically, this gas acts as a nucleus for cloud formation which reduces the amount of radiation from the sun that reaches... ?
