Brown Algae (Phaeophyta)

Brown Algae (Phaeophyta)

The brown algae are almost exclusively marine, the few fresh water species being quite rare. One kind, Heribaudiella, is of particular note.

It forms a relatively large disc shape crust of dark color on stones in rapidly flowing upland streams. The pigments of Phaetophytes include chlorophyll A and C, carotene and xanthophylls, including fucoxanthin. The last mentioned pigment predominates to give the characteristic brown color. Food reserve is maintained in brown algae in forms of sugar.
