In the drill core sections containing sparse shelly fauna, fragments of chlorophyte

Thus, the rotifers would have had an ample food source of chlorophytes
Impact of nutrients and physical factors on a shift from Cyanobacterial to Chlorophyte
dominance in shallow danish lakes.
RESPONSE TO POTENTIAL ECOLOGICAL THREAT TO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ECOSYSTEMS BY THE INTRODUCED MARINE CHLOROPHYTE
Further evidence that hydrologic changes have altered phytoplankton community structure is provided by the observed historical trends in dinoflagellate and chlorophyte
This efficiency varies depending on how susceptible the particles are to enzymatic breakdown; for example, many chlorophyte
algal species are poorly digested because of their characteristically thick cellulosic cell walls (Langdon & Newell 1996).
Stigeoclonium lubricum was the most abundant macroalgal taxon in the montane cloud forest streams having been collected in 7 of the 13 streams sampled (54%).
Preliminary study of the composition and abundance of the phytoplankton and chlorophytes

They also found cyanobacteria, chrysophytes and cryptophytes were dominant at times while dinoflagellates, chlorophytes
and euglenoids appeared occasionally abundant, but were relatively minor components on an annual basis.
Diatoms and chlorophytes
were dominant members of the periphyton throughout the study period.

were more abundant in spring, while diatoms were mostly abundant in winter and cyanophtes were abundant during summer.
The storage product is the same (starch) as higher plants and is similarly stored within plastids; most algal groups other than chlorophytes
