I could use some help. I recently came across a reference to 'red snow'.
Much to my surprise, a colleague assured me that this was a phenomenon due
to an alga, specifically some species of Chlamydomonas. Unfortunately, he
didn't know any more about it or where one might find a reference.
Can anyone point me toward a reference on the red snow phenomenon and also
where one might be able to get a culture of the organism? This sounds like
it has the potential for a neat lab exercise.
