One of the most common groups of algae on Earth, Green Algae derive their color from the chlorophyll in their cells which allows them to photosynthesize like terrestrial plants. Because of this, they make for an excellent source of oxygen in the early stages of ecosystem development, requiring little support for the changes they can provide.
Kelp provides the same benefits plus an increased birth rate, so it would be better to choose kelp unless the increased birthrate would be problematic.
- In real life, green algae is an informal grouping, not a taxonomic classification.
