The Evolution of Thallus Form and Survival Strategies in Benthic Marine Macroalgae: Field and Laboratory Tests of a Functional Form Model
TLDR
Data on succession, productivity, and toughness indicate that E. menziesii shifts from an opportunistic strategy during its juvenile stages to a highly differentiated complex form able to persist in mature successional stages, thus implicating selection for persistence as opposed to rapid growth in climax communities.
Marine Algae of California
TLDR
This is the first complete systematic treatment of the marine algae (seaweeds) of California and is a truly superb guide to the marine benthic algae of the entire California coast.
Caribbean Reef Plants
Dynamics of Millenary Organic Deposits Resulting from the Growth of the Mediterranean Seagrass Posidonia oceanica
Abstract The Mediterranean seagrassPosidonia oceanicaaccumulates large quantities of organic debris as roots, rhizomes and leaf sheaths are progressively buried forming a bioconstruction called ‘
Nutrient availability to marine macroalgae in siliciclastic versus carbonate-rich coastal waters
Abundant populations of frondose epilithic macroalgae from a variety of carbonate-rich tropical waters were significantly depleted in phosphorus relative to carbon and nitrogen when compared to
Morphological Form and Photosynthetic Performances of Marine Macroalgae: Tests of a Functional / Form Hypothesis
TLDR
The hypothesis that morphology and photosynthetic performance are related and the adaptive significance of thallus form as it pertains to the productivity ecology of rocky intertidal seaweeds is tested is tested.
Deepest Known Plant Life Discovered on an Uncharted Seamount
TLDR
Estimates concerning minimum light levels for macroalgal photosynthesis and macrophytic contributions to the biology and geology of tropical insular and continental borderlands must now be revised.
EVOLUTIONARY STRATEGIES IN A TROPICAL BARRIER REEF SYSTEM: FUNCTIONAL‐FORM GROUPS OF MARINE MACROALGAE 1
TLDR
The functional‐form group approach appears to have powerful capabilities in that it can indicate important morphological‐metabolic‐ecological interactions in a given community, where the macroalgae are known, without the need to examine each population in detail and without being constrained to a specific habitat or geographical region.
