Linnaeus was right all along: Ulva and Enteromorpha are not distinct genera
TLDR
Preliminary results provide strong evidence that Ulva, Enteromorpha and Chloropelta are not distinct evolutionary entities and should not be recognized as separate genera. Expand
PHYLOGENETIC SYSTEMATICS OF THE ULVACEAE (ULVALES, ULVOPHYCEAE) USING CHLOROPLAST AND NUCLEAR DNA SEQUENCES 1
TLDR
Systematic hypotheses for the Ulvaceae were tested using phylogenetic analysis of sequences for the gene encoding the large subunit of RUBISCO, small subunit rDNA and a combined data matrix, and monophyly of Enteromorpha and Ulva was not supported. Expand
Chemical compositions of the marine algae Gracilaria salicornia (Rhodophyta) and Ulva lactuca (Chlorophyta) as a potential food source.
TLDR
Two edible red and green seaweed species, G. salicornia and U. lactuca, may be utilised as value-added products for human nutrition purposes, according to the nutritional compositions investigated. Expand
A molecular systematic study of Ulva (Ulvaceae, Ulvales) from the northeast Pacific
TLDR
Molecular data resolve many of the species recognized by early and more recent treatments, reveal unanticipated potentially conspecific taxa and suggest that certain Ulva species are more widely distributed than may have been recognized previously. Expand
MOLECULAR ANALYSIS REVEALS CRYPTIC DIVERSITY IN PORPHYRA (RHODOPHYTA) 1
TLDR
The results indicate that the current subgenera in Porphyra do not represent monophyletic groups and that traditional morphological and ecological taxonomic characters alone may not be adequate for definitive species identification and cannot be relied on as an indication of Porphya have large insertions in the SSU gene that are apparently splicesd from the final SSU rRNA molecule.

Algae as weeds: economic impact, ecology and management alternatives Carole A. Lembi, Steven W. Smernoff and Maurice M. van der Meer. Expand
SEASONALITY OF EELGRASS, EPIPHYTE, AND GRAZER BIOMASS AND PRODUCTIVITY IN SUBTIDAL EELGRASS MEADOWS SUBJECTED TO MODERATE TIDAL AMPLITUDE
Abstract Epiphyte and eelgrass ( Zostera marina L.) biomass and production and herbivorous gastropod ( Lacuna spp.) biomass were measured monthly for two years in a subtidal meadow subjected toExpand
Conchospore production and seasonal occurrence of some Porphyra species (Bangiales, Rhodophyta) in Washington State
TLDR
Data from laboratory studies of conchospore formation and release in five Washington species of Porphyra indicate that con chospores are most likely to be released at a time that precedes the appearance of the leafy thalli in the field. Expand
CHLOROPLAST STRUCTURE AND PIGMENT COMPOSITION IN THE RED ALGA GRIFFITHSIA PACIFICA: REGULATION BY LIGHT INTENSITY 1
TLDR
Ulastructural examination of chloroplasts of plants grown at different intensities reveals that the number of phycobilisomes per unit of photosynthetic thylakoid changes in direct proportion to the pigment ratios and in inverseportion to the light intensity. Expand
MACROALGAL CANDIDATES FOR GENOMICS 1
TLDR
Red seaweed, Porphyra yezoensis Ueda, should be the leading candidate for a macroalgal genomics initiative, according to a set of criteria presented. Expand
