Visions of Algae

Images reveal the complex life of algae in the air, on the land, and in the water.  Viewed from the portal of microscopes, cameras, telescopes, and satellites Visions of Algae range in size from microscopic micromonas species to giant kelps that reach 60 meters (200 feet) in length to algal blooms seen from space.
