Many types of microorganisms spread in the soil, such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, algae, and protozoa. The soil contains many types of algae, which differ in their growth requirements, such as temperature and acidity. Soil fungi are microscopic plant-like cells. Soil fungi, along with soil bacteria, form the beginning of the soil food web, which improves soil functions and supports the survival of other organisms. Soil fungi are abundant in soils with low acidity, perennial plants, and organic residues that need a long time to decompose Algae and fungi are important and beneficial to the soil, and some of them are affected and benefit from the soil environment in a way that contributes to the formation of an integrated ecosystem that contributes to biological and life diversity. Green algae and diatoms usually dominate over other algae in the soils.
