The genus Laminaria sensu lato : recent insights and developments
This review about the genus Laminaria sensu lato summarizes the extensive literature that has been published since the overview of the genus given by Kain in 1979, and covers recent insights into phylogeny and taxonomy, and discusses morphotypes, ecotypes, population genetics and demography.
Evaluating the Species Boundaries of Green Microalgae (Coccomyxa, Trebouxiophyceae, Chlorophyta) Using Integrative Taxonomy and DNA Barcoding with Further Implications for the Species Identification…
The combination of different characteristics in an integrative approach helps to evaluate environmental data and clearly identifies microalgae at generic and species levels.
Seaweed Responses to Temperature

- Environmental Science
This chapter reviews three types of temperature responses of seaweeds that take place over different timescales: short-term physiological regulation, phenotypic acclimation in response to variation of environmental conditions, and genetic adaptation to local conditions.
EFFECTS OF UV‐B‐INDUCED DNA DAMAGE AND PHOTOINHIBITION ON GROWTH OF TEMPERATE MARINE RED MACROPHYTES: HABITAT‐RELATED DIFFERENCES IN UV‐B TOLERANCE
An important role of DNA repair pathways in determining the UV sensitivity in red macrophytes is suggested, as the accumulation of DNA damage may have been responsible for the complete inhibition of growth in Phycodrys rubens and Polyneura hilliae.
Physiological and biochemical responses of green microalgae from different habitats to osmotic and matric stress
Using 13C NMR spectroscopy and HPLC, it could be verified that ribitol functions as an osmotically regulated organic solute, the first proof of ribitol in free-living aeroterrestrial green algae.
Exposure times in rapid light curves affect photosynthetic parameters in algae
Ecological classification of macroalgae and angiosperm communities of inner coastal waters in the southern Baltic Sea
Diurnal oscillations of metabolite abundances and gene analysis provide new insights into central metabolic processes of the brown alga Ectocarpus siliculosus.
A model in which the accumulation of alanine could be used to store organic carbon and nitrogen during the light period is proposed, which suggests a possible link between low -aminobutyric acid contents and the absence of glutamate decarboxylase genes in the Ectocarpus genome.
Cross shelf hydrographic and hydrochemical conditions and their short term variability at the northern Benguela during a normal upwelling season
Biochemical characterization of mannitol metabolism in the unicellular red alga Dixoniella grisea (Rhodellophyceae)
The mannitol cycle has been verified in a unicellular red alga (Rhodellophyceae) for the first time and provides evidence that this metabolic pathway is of ancient origin in the red algal lineage.
