DNA-based species delimitation in algae
TLDR
These recent developments in DNA-based species delimitation methods are reviewed, and it is discussed how they have changed and continue to change the authors' understanding of algal species boundaries. Expand
MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF THE GENUS CAULERPA (CAULERPALES, CHLOROPHYTA) INFERRED FROM CHLOROPLAST tufA GENE1
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny was inferred from chloroplast tufA sequences of 23 taxa of Caulerpa to better understand the evolutionary history of the genus, finding high bootstrap values support monophyly of C. mexicana, C. sertularioides, and C. prolifera, whereas most other C Faulerpa species show para‐ or polyphyly. Expand
A mitochondrial marker for red algal intraspecific relationships
TLDR
This is the first report of a mitochondrial marker that is variable within red algal populations and may lead to a better understanding of the population ecology of these important marine organisms. Expand
Systematics and genetic variation in commercial Kappaphycus and Eucheuma (Solieriaceae, Rhodophyta)
TLDR
The systematics and taxonomy of Kappaphycus and Eucheuma (Solieriaceae) is confused and difficult due to morphological plasticity, lack of adequate characters to identify species and commercial names of convenience; molecular markers provided insights into taxonomy and genetic variation, and where sources of genetic variation may be located. Expand
18S rDNA phylogeny and evolution of cap development in Polyphysaceae (formerly Acetabulariaceae; Dasycladales, Chlorophyta)
TLDR
This study investigates in detail the development of reproductive structures in 17 Polyphysaceae (= Acetabulariaceae) species and provides a molecular phylogenetic analysis of 18S ribosomal DNA sequence data of 23 species of the order Dasycladales. Expand
Systematics and genetic variation in commercial shape Kappaphycus and shape Eucheuma (Solieriaceae, Rhodophyta)
TLDR
The systematics and taxonomy of Kappaphycus and Eucheuma (Solieriaceae) is confused and difficult due to morphological plasticity, lack of adequate characters to identify species and commercial names of convenience; molecular markers provided insights into taxonomy and genetic variation, and where sources of genetic variation may be located. Expand
Gracilaria species (Gracilariaceae, Rhodophyta) from southeastern Australia, including a new species, Gracilaria perplexa sp. nov.: Morphology, molecular relationships and agar content
TLDR
Molecular phylogeny shows that G. perplexa is closely related to Gracilaria preissiana from western Australia, but differs from the latter in its reduced branching and narrower more terete axes. Expand
Genetic structure of the giant kelp Macrocystis pyrifera along the southeastern Pacific
TLDR
It is concluded that both present and historic events are responsible for the genetic structure of M. pyrifera along the southeastern Pacific coast (SEP), and the low genetic diversity observed may be related to contemporary events and El Nino Southern Oscillation. Expand
THE EVOLUTION OF PARASITISM IN RED ALGAE: CELLULAR INTERACTIONS OF ADELPHOPARASITES AND THEIR HOSTS 1
TLDR
The development and physiology of these parasites is similar to normal post-fertilization processes in the hosts that give rise to carposporophytes and suggests that these adelphoparasites may have originated from perturbations of developmental pathways involved in their host's post‐fERTilization development. Expand
A PHYLOGENETIC STUDY OF PARASITIC GENERA PLACED IN THE FAMILY CHOREOCOLACACEAE (RHODOPHYTA) 1
TLDR
Using small subunit rDNA sequence data, it is found that all the parasites studied are within the same family as their host, and the placement of Holmsella, species of which parasitize Gracilaria and Gracilariopsis, in the order Gracilariales is supported and suggested, suggesting that Holnsella is an old parasitic genus.
