The Java Island and the adjacent Java Sea is divided into two major provinces West and East Java.

The south Java outer arc-basin is also included within this chapter.   Pond scum, seaweed, and giant kelp are all examples of algae. Algae are protists with plant-like characteristics, that are typically found in aquatic plants, algae are eukaryotic organisms that contain chloroplasts and are capable of animals, some algae possess flagella, centrioles, and are capable of feeding on organic material in their habitat.
