Phylogeny and Molecular Evolution of the Green Algae
Current understanding of organelle genome evolution in the green algae is summarized, genomic insights into the ecology of oceanic picoplanktonic prasinophytes, molecular mechanisms underlying the evolution of complexity in volvocine green algae, and the Evolution of genetic codes and the translational apparatus in green seaweeds are summarized.

The high predictive success of the presenceonly model of a notorious invasive seaweed shows that the information contained in Bio-ORACLE can be informative about marine distributions and permits building highly accurate species distribution models.
A multi-locus time-calibrated phylogeny of the brown algae (Heterokonta, Ochrophyta, Phaeophyceae): Investigating the evolutionary nature of the "brown algal crown radiation".
DNA-based species delimitation in algae
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.

Model predictions suggest that three foundational, macroalgal species that occur along North-Atlantic shores will shift northwards as an assemblage or “unit” and that phytogeographic changes will be most pronounced in the southern Arctic and the southern temperate provinces.
Research note: Identity of the Qingdao algal bloom
The alga that caused the Qingdao bloom is identified by means of morphological and molecular data, including sequence data of the plastid encoded large subunit ribulose 1,5‐bisphosphate carboxylase gene (rbcL) and the nuclear encoded rDNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region.
Outstanding Challenges in the Transferability of Ecological Models.
A multi-locus time-calibrated phylogeny of the siphonous green algae.
Improving Transferability of Introduced Species’ Distribution Models: New Tools to Forecast the Spread of a Highly Invasive Seaweed
This multifactorial experiment on the notorious invasive seaweed Caulerpacylindracea uses Maxent, a commonly used presence-only modeling technique and shows that model transferability is markedly improved by appropriate predictor selection, with occurrence thinning, model complexity and background choice having relatively minor effects.
