De la misma manera que las demas algas, las clorococales (actualmente incluidas en las Viridiplantae dentro de la division Chlorophyta, clase Chlorohyceae y orden Sphaeropleales) responden a las fluctuaciones de los factores fisicos y quimicos y presentan cambios significativos en sus caracteristicas poblacionales; por tanto, su supervivencia debe estar mediada por diferentes estrategias que les permitan mantenerse en las profundidades adecuadas, tanto para la consecucion de nutrientes como para alcanzar las intensidades de luz apropiadas (Reynolds 1984, Horne & Goldman 1994).
