Applied Phycology

Phycology has various branches of study for the identification of various organisms. In order to identify and study algae, scientists have started a different branch of science known as "Phycology".
 
Algae which pose as primary producers in the aquatic ecosystem are extremely useful as they help in the growth of different microorganisms and they also help in making them thrive. They are separated and have a different name from several other plants because they are not true plants. A plant is called a true plant only if they have the roots, stems and leaves while algae on the other spectrum do not possess any of these characteristics. They also do not flower like plants. Most algae are single celled and only few species are multicellular.  These include microalgae and phytoplanktons. Some species of algae are also capable of growing into large sizes like seaweeds (Sargassum and Kelp).
 
Phycology also includes the study of different forms of prokaryotes like cyanobacteria and blue-green algae. Micro algae have also an off chance of becoming symbionts like lichens.

Phycology, also called algology explores the study of algae which are the heterogeneous group of aquatic plants ranging in size from microscopic forms to species as large as shrubs or trees. Algae are important to the human race mainly because of their importance in ecology, as they constitute a vital segment of the food chains. These algae are primarily the supplementary food sources for humans in the coastal geographical regions.
