Marine Algae of California
This is the first complete systematic treatment of the marine algae (seaweeds) of California. The 726 species treated are each illustrated by a detailed line drawing made from an actual specimen.Expand

The Evolution of Thallus Form and Survival Strategies in Benthic Marine Macroalgae: Field and Laboratory Tests of a Functional Form Model
A synthetic "functional form" paradigm concerning hypothetically important adaptive features of algal structure and function was developed and tested by a costs/benefits strategic approach.Expand

Harmful algae on tropical coral reefs: Bottom-up eutrophication and top-down herbivory
A conceptual paradigm, the ‘‘Relative Dominance Model’’, provides the perspective to assess the interactive external forcingmechanisms controlling phase shifts among the dominant benthic functionalExpand

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 ‘Expand

Deep-water plant communities from an uncharted seamount off San Salvador Island, Bahamas: distribution, abundance, and primary productivity
Studies from a submersible on a seamount off San Salvador (Bahamas) revealed a diverse multilayered macrophyte community, with net productivity levels comparable to shallow water seaweeds althoughExpand

Macroalgal blooms on southeast Florida coral reefs: II. Cross-shelf discrimination of nitrogen sources indicates widespread assimilation of sewage nitrogen
Since 1990, coral reefs off southeast Florida have experienced an unprecedented succession of macroalgal blooms and invasions. To determine if anthropogenic land-based nitrogen (N) sources supportExpand

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 toExpand

Morphological Form and Photosynthetic Performances of Marine Macroalgae: Tests of a Functional / Form Hypothesis
Net and gross production rates were determined in the field at light intensities above 20,000 lux for 45 species of marine macroalgae from four different environments in southwestern North America.Expand
