Did you know that around 45% of atmospherical oxigen is produced by algae? This exercise offers insights into the fascinating world of algae, a group which is significantly involved in global flow patterns.

Additionally, we offer an introduction into phylogenetic analyses and latest results of algal relationships. Language will be either German or English according to requirements.
