    Kelps are large seaweeds (algae) belonging to the brown algae (Phaeophyceae) in the order Laminariales. There are about 30 different genera.
    http://seanet.stanford.edu/Phaeophyta/index.html
    The brown seaweeds have recently been grouped into a single large division (=phylum) with other unicellular golden or brown-pigmented algae (e.g. diatoms, chrysophytes). This is based on the fine structure of their flagella and chloroplasts, among other characteristics. Brown seaweeds possess an accessory photosynthetic pigment called fucoxanthin, which gives them their golden-brown color. These large, productive seaweeds are important components of nearshore marine communities, especially in temperate latitudes. The kelps (Order Laminariales, including Macrocystis) have a complex life history that alternates between a large spore-producing phase and a microscopic gamete-producing stage. 1500-2000 living species.

    there's also chlorophyta and rhodophyta (green and red)....there's also different types of physiological categories for macroalgae such as Macrocystis, such as sheet, calciferous, branching, and filiform....

    oh padina, dictyota, ulva and tubinaria....oh how i miss you....
