Title: Algae Research
Creator: National Museum of Natural History <Washington, DC> / Smithsonian Institution, Department of Botany
Abstract: Algae are photosynthetic organisms that occur in most habitats. They vary from small, single-celled forms to complex multicellular forms, such as the giant kelps that grow to 65 meters in length. The Algal Collection of the U.S. National Herbarium is represented by nearly 300,000 accessioned and inventoried herbarium specimens preserved on herbarium sheets, microscope slides or liquid preparations. The collection is comprised of marine, estuarine, freshwater, terrestrial (including cave) and airborne algae and is worldwide in origin, with strong representation of tropical and subtropical marine algae.
