Sea Weeds are part of the Protista Kingdom - They are weird and wonderful and are an important environmental element on planet earth. Traditionally considered the first eukaryotic forms of life, there are over 25,000 species of seaweed in the worlds oceans that provide food, shelter, and oxygen for numerous underwater ecosystems and form an important part of the carbon cycle - the processes by which carbon is released, transferred, and stored around the globe & where CO2 is removed from the atmosphere.
The components of life are all created with carbon with its unique ability to create a diverse array of properties - represented in this macro photographic image of coastal organic matter. The coastal aspect reflects the important relationship of water and carbon in our environment and the essential balance they provide to sustaining life.
