In various algal taxa, essentially all known phytohormones were detected in concentrations comparable with their content in higher plants. The occurrence of diverse free and conjugated hormone forms substantiates the functioning of the complex system of metabolism and activity regulation of these compounds. In most cases, the spectrum of biological activities of algal hormones corresponds to the functions of higher plant hormones. Some physiological and biochemical processes in algal cells and tissues are under the control of several phytohormones. All these facts permit a consideration of the algal hormonal system as a full-value regulatory system.
