Algae are protists or plantae[edit]

Can anybody please mention clearly which one is more applicable Rituraj6868nnun (talk) 08:17, 29 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Neither really, it is awfully complicated and you would be best off reading and understanding the three relevant articles. Since land plants arose from within the green algae and share a common ancestor with them, many now argue that land plants are in fact green algae, though there is still an inconveniently contrasting point of view that green algae are not plants, and that Plantae started with the Embryophyte's transition to land. Algae are not all related. Certainly there are groups of algae (e.g. brown algae) that are not related either to green algae or to plants. Protists don't form a clade with plants or green algae either, so it is no longer regarded as useful as a formal grouping.Plantsurfer 15:51, 29 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fully protected edit request on 11 June 2022[edit]

A protected redirect, Alga, needs redirect category (rcat) templates added. Please modify it as follows:

  • from this:
#REDIRECT [[Algae]]
  • to this:
#REDIRECT [[Algae]]

{{Redirect category shell|
{{R from move}}
{{R to plural|printworthy}}
{{R mentioned in hatnote}}
{{R printworthy}}

The {{Redirect category shell}} template is used to sort redirects into one or more categories. When {{pp-protected}} and/or {{pp-move}} suffice, the Redirect category shell template will detect the protection level(s) and categorize the redirect automatically. (Also, the categories will be automatically removed or changed when and if protection is lifted, raised or lowered.) Thank you in advance!

Change to: "most lichen are comprised of 3 organismd"[edit]

Specifically two fungal one bacterial,archea, or algel. This is new information. Easy to find.

The current article states this is "rare", but that's not true, its most common. (talk) 13:47, 1 December 2022 (UTC)talonxpoolReply[reply]

"Photosynthetic," to me, denotes artificiality. I think the sentences employing such semantics should be restructured to adequately and accurately inclusive concepts. 2600:1012:B106:3A59:845E:3AC5:EAA4:CB4 (talk) 07:28, 20 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"Photosynthetic" is the adjective formed from "photosynthesis" (see e.g. here, so means "relating to photosynthesis". A "photosynthetic organism" is one that is capable of photosynthesis. So it does not have anything to do with "artificiality". Peter coxhead (talk) 11:57, 20 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
