What important role does protista play in the environment and what are the differences between protists and algae?

I know that protists are part of the nitrogen process in marine life but I need to know what other roles they have in the environment. I know protists and algea are alike but I need the differences between the two. I am writing a research paper and I would like to add more than what I have.

You probably know all of this but just in case you don't: Chlorophyta (green algae): produce the most oxygen in the world. Many saprophytic (decomposers)
Many feed on bacteria, plants, algae, etc. to maintain balance in ecosystem.
