Field Notes
Our class studied Dasysiphonia which is an invasive species of algae. In this project we investigated Dasysiphonia and how it’s taking over red algae. We used microscopes that have 10X, 40X, and 400X zoom and we did not find much Dasysiphonia. It was fun but serious at the same time witch is hard to come across when it’s supposed to be serious.
Supporting Evidence

This is not Dasysiphonia. It is not the right features to be Dasysiphonia. It does not have a shepards hook witch is part of Dasysiphonia.

I do not believe this is Dasysiphonia. It is round big and cells. This is the same item used for all of the photos so I know none of these are not Dasysiphonia.

This one I absolutely know isn't Dasysiphonia. It was really hard to zoom in to because I fully zoomed and I got a really bad quality photo.

I agree - this is not Dasysiphonia. It is probably Polysiphonia.

Keep up the good work!
