Single – celled algae (microalgae) and macroalgae have a vital role in the ecology of the planet, being responsible of for roughly 45% of global productivity supporting food webs in water ecosystems. However, trying to quantify their contribution to ecological dynamics and biogeochemical cycles remains a daunting process for various reasons. In this work most common algal culturing techniques are presented, with the focus to isolation techniques as well as maintenance of micro- and macroalgae cultures. Various culture media, as well as agar plates have been developed and used for isolation and cultivation of freshwater and marine algae. It's important to know the ecology and physiology of each species in order to choose right medium. Experiments with cultures are and will remain crucial in a processes of understanding how algae responses to environmental variability.
