      The term “Phycology” has been formed from Phykos (which is the Greek word for alga) and Logy (study, knowledge). Phycology is defined as the branch of Botany (Click here to know the definition of Botany) dealing with the orderly and systematized study of algae. It was only after the invention of the microscope that the real progress was made in the scientific study of algae.
