Abstract:
Andaman is under one of the nine union territories of India, containing 572 islands and it covers nearly 6498 km2. These Islands form an archipelago in Bay of Bengal between India to the West and Myanmar to the north and east situated in between 6º N to 14º N latitude and 92º E to 94º E longitude, Once a hill range extending from Myanmar to Indonesia, these quaint undulating islets are cover with dense and evergreen forest and endless varieties of exotic flora and fauna. Present communication deals with sixteen taxa, represented by nine genera under Chlorophyceae, Phaeophyceae and Rhodophyceae from twelve stations of north and south Andaman.
