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 studiedExpand
Deep-water kelp refugia as potential hotspots of tropical marine diversity and productivity
Classic marine ecological paradigms view kelp forests as inherently temperate-boreal phenomena replaced by coral reefs in tropical waters. These paradigms hinge on the notion that tropical surfaceExpand
Induction, exudation and the UV protective role of kelp phlorotannins
Abstract This study examined the ability of kelp phlorotannin exudate to attenuate artificial UVB radiation and whether exposure to UV could affect short-term phlorotannin levels within MacrocystisExpand
Effect of seawater velocity on inorganic nitrogen uptake by morphologically distinct forms of Macrocystis integrifolia from wave-sheltered and exposed sites
In conditions of low water motion (<0.06 ms−1), the availability of essential nutrients to macroalgae, and thus their potential productivity, may be limited by thick diffusion boundary-layers at theExpand
Nitrogen uptake kinetics in three year-classes of Laminaria groenlandica (Laminariales: Phaeophyta)
Nitrate and ammonium uptake rates were measured for three year-classes of the perennial macrophyte Laminaria groenlandica Rosenvinge, collected from nitrogen-depleted waters in Barkley Sound, BritishExpand
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 forExpand
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
Mitochondrial DNA sequence variation of four Saccharina species (Laminariales, Phaeophyceae) growing in Japan
The complete mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) was sequenced for four Saccharina species including three varieties of Saccharina japonica in Hokkaido: S. japonica; S. japonica var. religiosa; S. japonicaExpand
The pattern of Laminariales distribution in the northeast Pacific
AbstractThe distribution of 40 species of Laminariales is described for the northeast Pacific coast from Santa Margarita Island, Baja California, Mexico to Attu Island, Alaska, U. S. A. In general ...
A RIBOSOMAL DNA PHYLOGENY SUPPORTS THE CLOSE EVOLUTIONARY RELATIONSHIPS AMONG THE SPOROCHNALES, DESMARESTIALES, AND LAMINARIALES (PHAEOPHYCEAE) 1
We report six complete 18S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) sequences representing five brown algal orders: Sporochnus comosus C. A. Agardh (Sporochnales), Chorda tomentosa Lyngbye (Chordaceae, Laminariales),Expand
