Antimicrobial activities of extracts from tropical Atlantic marine plants against marine pathogens and saprophytes
Results from this survey demonstrate that antimicrobial activities are prevalent among extracts from marine algae and seagrasses, suggesting that antimacterial chemical defenses are widespread among marine plants. Expand

DMSP in marine macroalgae and macroinvertebrates: Distribution, function, and ecological impacts
Abstract.The production of dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) and its cleavage products are well studied in phytoplankton. However, less is known about their sources, distributions, functions, and… Expand
Ecological roles for water-borne metabolites from Antarctic soft corals
The organic fraction of seawater collected near this soft coral showed potent antibacterial activity, andctions support the release of waterborne allelochemicals by these 2 species. Expand
Antimicrobial activities of extracts from Indo-Pacific marine plants against marine pathogens and saprophytes
The antimicrobial effects of lipophilic and hydrophilic extracts from 54 species of marine algae and two species of seagrasses collected from Indo- Pacific reef habitats provide good evidence that antimicrobial chemical defenses are widespread among Indo-Pacific marine plants. Expand
Antifungal Defenses of Seagrasses from the Indian River Lagoon, Florida
The seagrasses examined in this study appear to use a combined strategy to combat fungal infection, including microbial chemical defenses and signaling pathways observed in terrestrial plants. Expand

The structure of apakaochtodene A, the minor isomer of two tetrahalogenated ochtodene monoterpenes, isolated from the red marine alga Portieria hornemannii (Lyngbye) Silva has been identified as… Expand
Intraspecific variation in the red alga Portieria hornemannii : monoterpene concentrations are not influenced by nitrogen or phosphorus enrichment
Variation in ochtodene concentrations in P. hornemannii cannot be attributed to N and P availability; however, the decrease in oachtodene and triglyceride concentrations during the shaded laboratory experiment suggests that light may be a factor influencing monoterpene biosynthesis. Expand
The non-scleractinian Anthozoa (Cnidaria) of the Mariana Islands
The zoanthid, corallimorpharian, and shallow water gorgonian faunas of Guam are relatively well character- ized, although many locally recognized forms remain to be identified to species. Expand
