Algae


Every few days I pull a large amount of algae out of our pond. I spend quite a while pulling it out - carefully making sure that no newts or snails or other water creatures are taken out of the water. The algae is really rather pretty in the sunlight.

GB had a large amount of what appears to be the same algae in his pond. Any idea what it is?

I'm afraid I've no idea.

There is a large book on algae in the lab. I shall have to check if it has any temperate species.
