Each Chlorella cell is complete and well-defined. Its sizeable nucleus is contained in the nuclear envelope. Outside this envelope are the chloroplast and mitochondria. A grain of starch is visible in the 'northwest' quadrant of the cell. The cell walls serve to confine and defend the Chlorella cell unit.

During approximately the first billion years of the earth's existence, its atmosphere was heavy with deadly gases such as ammonia, methane and carbon dioxide. It became the role of green plant life (such as Chlorella) to filter these deadly elements, eventually changing the earth's environment to one capable of supporting flora (plants) and fauna (animals).

Chlorella is not visible to the human eye. A single Chlorella cell measures only 6/1000 (six one-thousandths) of a millimetre in diameter. However, its rapid reproduction rate is truly incredible. A single Chlorella cell can divide and subdivide into 4 separate cells every 16 to 20 hours! If a Chlorella cell were given free reign to reproduce itself at this rate, in 63 days enough Chlorella would be generated to equal the earth's volume. However, nature has limited Chlorella's growth rate:

A Chlorella cell requires substantial sunlight. If an overabundance of Chlorella causes a lack of available space for it to continue its reproduction, the reproduction rate simply decreases. Due to Chlorella's rapid growth, it's relatively small space required for reproduction and it's abundance of nutrients, Chlorella offers researchers many opportunities for further study into its varied properties.
