To write a chapter on the biology of microalgae is a daunting task given the great diversity of these organisms. This chapter only covers only selected aspects of their biology and highlights particular features to illustrate microalgal diversity and evolution and how this is reflected in their biology. The aim is to provide the reader with an appreciation of the nature and importance of these ubiquitous and beautiful organisms.
