By studying algae reports from different localities of the country during the past 87 years, about 6000 records information including 2567 species and infra-specifics were analyzed and distribution maps were drawn. The algae studies in the Iranian islands of the Persian Gulf, especially around Bushehr and the Khark Island by Borgesen (1930), the oldest available document is used in this study. Many of the scientific names of the references used were synonyms with authorities in the field of algae taxonomy, such as AlgaeBase (Guiry & Guiry 2015) were changed to valid names.
Using the capabilities VB.Net programming (Foxall 2015) under a model of software named as “Explorer for Algae of Iran” was designed and developed.
