How to use algae in a sentence?

  1. Sam Hook:

    If we looked at these warming rates, a project of what would happen in the next century then what we would see is that algal blooms would go up by about 20 percent, this is the green algae that you see in the lakes, often times in the summer and some of that green algae that is added, some of it contains harmful toxins and so what it can do is, it puts restrictions on people going out on the water or using the water for drinking purposes and things like that. So, there are real consequences to the actual lake ecosystem.

  2. The Florida Fish:

    Because K. brevis cannot tolerate low-salinity waters for very long, blooms usually remain in salty coastal waters and do not penetrate upper reaches of estuaries, however, other harmful algae, including cyanobacteria (blue-green algae), typically bloom in freshwater lakes and rivers.

  3. Urvashi Rangan:

    Bacteria and algae can begin to grow and disease can set in, prompting farmers to use drugs and other chemicals that can remain on the shrimp and seep into the surrounding environment.

  4. Timothy Gibson:

    Previously, the oldest widely accepted fossilized green algae was about 800 million years old, this work confirms what many have expected based on the existing, though sparse fossil record, which is that green algae likely existed about a billion years ago.

  5. Kelly Taylor:
