A MULTI‐GENE MOLECULAR INVESTIGATION OF THE KELP (LAMINARIALES, PHAEOPHYCEAE) SUPPORTS SUBSTANTIAL TAXONOMIC RE‐ORGANIZATION 1
Every year numerous ecological, biochemical, and physiological studies are performed using members of the order Laminariales. Despite the fact that kelp are some of the most intensely studied… Expand
GEL PURIFICATION OF RED ALGAL GENOMIC DNA: AN INEXPENSIVE AND RAPID METHOD FOR THE ISOLATION OF POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION‐FRIENDLY DNA 1
- G. Saunders
- 1 April 1993
A simplified approach for the extraction of DNA from red algae in presented. Procedures are simple and fast, requiring a minimum of reagents and apparatus. The method involves an initial lysis step… Expand
ULTRASTRUCTURE AND 18S RRNA GENE SEQUENCE FOR PELAGOMONAS CALCEOLATA GEN. ET SP. NOV. AND THE DESCRIPTION OF A NEW ALGAL CLASS, THE PELAGOPHYCEAE CLASSIS NOV. 1
Pelagomonas calceolata gen. et sp. nov., an ultra‐planktonic marine alga, is described using electron microscopy and the cytoplasmic small subunit (18S) ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene sequence. Cells are… Expand
CRYPTOMONAD EVOLUTION: NUCLEAR 18S rDNA PHYLOGENY VERSUS CELL MORPHOLOGY AND PIGMENTATION 1
A nuclear18S rDNA phylogeny for cryptomonad algae is presented, including 11 species yet to be investigated by molecular means. The phylogenetic positions of the cryptomonad genera Campylomonas and… Expand
Small-subunit ribosomal RNA sequences from selected dinoflagellates: testing classical evolutionary hypotheses with molecular systematic methods
The dinoflagellates are a large, richly diverse group of protists with marine and freshwater representatives, photosynthetic and heterotrophic nutritional modes, toxic and non-toxic isolates and some… Expand
Small-subunit rRNA gene sequences from representatives of selected families of the Gigartinales and Rhodymeniales (Rhodophyta). 1. Evidence for the Plocamiales ord.nov.
Nucleotide sequences of the nuclear, small-subunit (SSU) ribosomal RNAs, as inferred from polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-amplified products, are presented for Areschougia congesta (Turner) J. Agardh… Expand
Small-subunit rRNA gene sequences from representatives of selected families of the Gigartinales and Rhodymeniales (Rhodophyta). 2. Recognition of the Halymeniales ord.nov.
Nucleotide sequences of the nuclear, small-subunit ribosomal RNAs, as inferred from polymerase chain reaction amplified products, are introduced for representatives of the Dumontiaceae,… Expand
Biology of Furcellaria lumbricalis (Hudson) Lamouroux (Rhodophyta: Gigartinales), a commercial carrageenophyte
Information on the commercially utilized marine red alga Furcellaria lumbricalis is summarized from published sources. Biological aspects under discussion include: nomenclature, taxonomy, morphology,… Expand
Molecular and morphological phylogenies of kelp and associated brown algae
Morphological and molecular phylogenies of kelp (Laminariales, Phaeophyceae), the world’s largest protists, are generally at odds. This chapter discusses the current state of knowledge for… Expand
NUCLEOTIDE SEQUENCES OF THE SMALL‐SUBUNIT RIBOSOMAL RNA GENES FROM SELECTED LAMINARIALES (PHAEOPHYTA): IMPLICATIONS FOR KELP EVOLUTION 1
The entire small‐subunit (SSU) ribosomal ribonucleic acid sequence was inferred for kelp representing seven genera: Alaria marginata Postels and Ruprecht (1824 bp), Egregia menziesii (Turner)… Expand
