    Abstract

    Micro algae are diverse group of microscopic photo-autotrophic nonvascular plants with photosynthesizing pigments. They are unicellular and sometimes form extended chains with simple reproductive structures. These unicellular primary producers are dispersed throughout the photic zones of the ocean and accomplish major share of the primary production in the marine environment and account half of the primary production in the earth. They belong to both prokaryotes (Blue Green algae, Cyanobacteria) and eukaryotes (True algae). The phylogeny of microalgae basically depends on the traditional morphological identification. Morphological identification, based on the structure and arrangement of cell organelles, has limited application when environmental condition like salinity, pH, light, temperature, nutrient condition can change the structure of the cell. Recently more research has been carried out in the field of algal taxonomy, wherein many exciting molecular and ultrastuctural evidences has emerged. Due to its diverse distribution, only about 40,000 to 60,000 species of microalgae have been described. There are many species yet to be described including the extremophiles (Norton et al., 1996; Sastre and Posten, 2010).
