Geothermal Algae

flash14756(z6 Boise, Idaho USA)March 14, 2006

Im in 8th grade and doing a report on the algae that live in geothermal hot springs. What, generaly, are the most common algae species and what causes the diferant colors?

Also, can someone direct me to some good websites on this subject?
