Upper Peninsula Algae

This Web Page was created for and dedicated to the freshwater algae of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.  While we boat, swim, and generally recreate in the UP's lakes, rivers, and streams, the algae, unaware of and unconcerned by our presence, go about their photosynthetic lives.  Here's to you, algae, the unheralded yet oh so important residents of the UP's fresh waters.

This page was created for my class in Phycology.  While I've done my best to accurately identify the algae contained on this page, some individuals may be misidentified.

This page contains collection information and a little background on why I've created this website.
