Algae perform asexual reproduction with the help of spores.

Chlorophyceae aka green algae produces both

  1. planospores(motile) e.g. Zoospores(flagellated)
  2. aplanospores(non motile) e.g. akinetes

Phaeophyceae aka Brown algae forms only planospores i.e. all are zoospores

Rhodophyceae aka red algae only forms aplanospores
