Classification of Algae-based on Habitat

According to their habitat algae are classified into seven groups.

 Hydrophilus algae:

These are aquatic, free floating or completely submerged algae.

 Edaphic algae:

Terestial algae are called Edaphic algae. They live upon or inside the surface of earth. Edaphic algae are classified into two types,

        Saprophytes E.g. Mesotaemium, Botryduium

        Crypyophytes E.g. Nostoc, Anabaena

Aerial algae:

These are aerial forms of algae. They are found upon trunks of trees, walls, fencing wire, rocks and animals. Aerial algae are classified into four types. They are,

        Epiphyllophytes E.g. Trentepohlia


        Epizoophytes E.g. Chaetophorales

        Lithophytes E.g. Sctonema, Vaucheria, Nostoc

 Cryophytic algae:

Algae living on ice and snow are called cryophytes or cryophytic algae.

Eg. Chlamydomonas, Ankistrodesmus and Mesotaenium.

 Symbionts or Endophytes:

Algae growing in symbiotic association with other plants are called symbionts. There are three types. They are,

       Symbiotic with fungi E.g. Chroococcus, Nostoc, Chlorella and palmella

       Lives inside the pteridophyte Azolla. Eg. Anabaena azollae.

       Found in the corolloid roots of Cycas. Eg. Anabaena cicadae.

Endozoic algae:

Algae living inside the body of animals are called Endozoic algae.

        Inside fresh water sponges

        Inside Hydra


Algae live as parasites on other plants. Eg.Cephaleuros virescens.
