Medical Definition of Rhodophyta

1. Division of algae, many of which have branching filamentous forms and red colouration. The latter is due to the presence of phycoerythrin. The food reserve is floridean (starch), found outside the plastid. The walls contain sulphated galactans such as carrageenan and agar. (23 Aug 1998)
