Algae expert witnesses are often skilled with such areas as microbiology, oceanography, biology, botany, and other environmental studies. Algae is a broad term used to classify a number of varying microorganisms usually found within oceanic settings that share certain traits with plants, but have no stems or roots and are composed only of cells. Algae may refer to multi-cellular or unicellular life forms, resulting in a wide range of study in the background of many algae experts.
Algae expert witnesses may be called upon to provide expert opinions regarding environmental science, since algae is often a major natural growth of different environments, even swimming pools, commercial buildings, and residential complexes. Algae are an essential part of oceanic ecosystems, serving as sustenance for numerous types of zooplankton, which are predatory organisms found within the ocean, as well as food for several types of fish. Algae are significant factors in the biodiversity of various organisms, and therefore an important aspect of environmental conservation since so much of biology depends on its presence.
Algae expert consulting may provide information on botany and plant pathology, as algae contain chlorophyll and other characteristics associated with plants. While algae are most often identified as seaweed, the microorganism may grow in other moist environments, including areas with rocks, soil, or trees.
