Kōrero: Life in fresh water

Charophyte (3 o 3)


Charophytes are macro-algae (large enough to be seen by the naked eye) that form dense meadows at greater depths in lakes. Such plants, below the water’s surface, use sunlight to convert basic chemical nutrients in water and lake sediments into leaves, stalks and other plant matter. Many animals browse these plants or use them as cover.
