Ecological growth strategies in the seaweeds Gracilaria foliifera (Rhodophyceae) and Ulva sp. (Chlorophyceae): Soluble nitrogen and reserve carbohydrates
The seaweeds Gracilaria foliifera (Rhodophyceae) and Ulva sp. (Chlorophyceae) were grown in an outdoor continuous-flow system at both ambient incident light (I0) and 0.13 I0. During the winter, bothExpand

Uptake of inorganic nitrogen and seaweed surface area: Volume ratios
Surge uptake of ammonium and nitrate by four intertidal seaweed species was examined under standard conditions (16.5 or 20°C, 72 μE m−2 s−1), at both subsaturating and saturating initial nutrientExpand

Photoacclimation and photoinhibition in Ulva rotundata as influenced by nitrogen availability
Clonal tissue of the marine chlorophyte macroalga, Ulva rotundata Blid., was transferred from 100 to 1700 μmol photons · m−2 · s−1 under limiting (1.5 μM NH4+maximum, N/P=2) and sufficient (15 μMExpand

THE PRODUCTION OF EXTRACELLULAR POLYSACCHARIDE BY THE UNICELLULAR RED ALGA PORPHYRIDIUM AERUGINEUM 1, 2
The unicellular red alga Porphyridium aerugineum was shown to be encapsulated by an amorphous, water‐soluble, polyanionic polysaccharide of high molecular weight. The encapsulating polysaccharide isExpand

Effect of temperature on nitrogen-limited growth rate and chemical composition of Ulva curvata (Ulvales: Chlorophyta)
Ulva curvata (Kutz.) de Toni growing in shallow estuaries experiences a highly variable supply of dissolved inorganic N, which can limit growth rates. The effects of N supply variability and annualExpand

GROWTH OF THE GREEN ALGA CODIUM FRAGILE IN A CONNECTICUT ESTUARY 1
An in situ comparison of environmental and physiological factors was undertaken in 1971–72 (15 months) in the Niantic River estuary to elucidate some of the important aspects, of the growth andExpand

SEAWEED ANATOMY AND PHOTOSYNTHETIC PERFORMANCE: THE ECOLOGICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF LIGHT GUIGES, HETEROGENEOUS ABSORPTION AND MULTIPLE SCATTER 1 2
Light absorption by two green seaweeds with similar photophysiology but different anatomies are compared: i) Ulva lactuca var. rigida (C. Ag.) Le Jolis, an optically translucent species of two cellExpand

Seasonal niche strategy of the bloom-forming dinoflagellate Heterocapsa triquetra
Heterocapsa triquetra is one of the most common bloom-forming dinoflagellates found in estuaries and near shore regions around the world. This work examined the environmental factors associated withExpand
