Beautiful Diatoms, Diatoms are a major group of algae, and are among the most common types of phytoplankton

images of diatoms.....Diatoms are unicellular algae which form distinct and beautiful cell walls from silica. They are widely distributed throughout the upper layers of the oceans of the world, and can also be found in fresh water or moist environments, such as the undersides of plants.

Diatoms are a major group of typically unicellular algae, and are one of the most common varieties of phytoplankton. Unique to diatoms, their cells are encased in a cell wall of silica (silicon.

coccolithophores (single-celled algae, protists and phytoplankton)

infinity-imagined: Coccolithophores are microscopic algae that first appeared 220 million years ago, and flourished during the cretaceous period. They constantly remove carbon from the atmosphere as they die and sink to the ocean floor, producing chalk.

Diatoms are a major group of algae, and are one of the most common types of phytoplankton. Most diatoms are unicellular, although they can exist as colonies in the shape of filaments or ribbons, fans, zigzags, or stars.

Diatoms are a major group of algae, and are one of the most common types of phytoplankton, major producers of oxygen.

If you thought petroleum came from dinosaurs, think again, and much smaller.

Tracing Oil Reserves to Their Tiny Origins

Ernst Haeckel’s Kunstformen der Natur (Artforms of nature) Plate 84 (Diatomea). Per Wikipedia, diatomea are a major group of algae, and are one of the most common types of phytoplankton.

Diatoms are a major group of algae. A characteristic feature of diatom cells is that they are encased within a cell wall made of silica (hydrated silicon dioxide) called a frustule.
