Science: Valonia Ventricosa
Transcript of Science: Valonia Ventricosa
~ http://biogeodb.stri.si.edu/bocas_database/search/species/6654 Enviroment Bubble algae grow in nutrients-rich shallow areas of salt water, and are found mostly in tidal zones in tropical and subtropical areas (e.g. Caribbean, Brazil, Florida...). They usually attach themselves into rock crevices and depressions, where they can easily find nutrients. Bubble algae are also a problem in salt water aquariums with rocks. The deepest that they have been found is at 80 meters Appearance Bubble algae is a plant, so it use photosynthesis for food. It takes in minerals, CO2, water and sunlight from it's surroundings for photosynthesis. Nutrients Reproduction The bubble algae uses asexual and sexual reproduction. In asexual reproduction, the mother cell's nucleus splits into 2 nuclei, and then the cell splits, creating two cells. Sexual reproduction has not been researched as much, so I couldn't find any information on it. Lifespan Because this organism reproduces by fission, it can live forever, since it keeps on splitting in 2. Emerald crabs like to eat bubble algae
