Algae consist of large and diverse group of phototrophic, oxygenic, eukaryotic microorganisms. Algae are eukaryotic, which means they have a nucleus. This differentiates them from bacteria and photosynthetic cyanobacteria. Algae also use light as their source of energy for growth and produce oxygen as a byproduct, like plants. However, algae are different from plants as they do not have any tissue. While on the other hand plants can differentiate their tissues into roots, trunks, and leaves, all very different tissue types. Algae in contrast are composed of cells which are generally all the same. In spite of the differences between plants and algae, many algal species are closely related to plants. But the algae are very diverse.

Some algae, such as euglena, are closer evolutionarily to single-celled protozoa than to plants. The main unifying characteristic that determines if a species is considered algae is that all algae contain or have a very recent ancestor that contained chlorophyll a. Algae are available in different shapes and sizes and contain different valuable substances. Algae are one of the most useful organisms.
