Molecular evidence for verifying the distribution of Chondracanthus chamissoi and C. teedei (Gigartinaceae, Rhodophyta)
Abstract Chondracanthus teedei and C. chamissoi are regarded as cosmopolitan and endemic species, respectively. To verify the geographic distribution of these two species, we analyzed specimens of C.… Expand
DNA barcode assessment of Gracilaria salicornia (Gracilariaceae, Rhodophyta) from Southeast Asia
BackgroundDNA barcoding is becoming a widely applied tool for the quick and accurate identification of species. The evolution of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene is… Expand
Applying DNA barcoding to Korean Gracilariaceae (Rhodophyta)
Les Gracilariacees (algues rouges) sont exploitees commercialement pour en extraire de l'agar qui sert en recherche biotechnologique et microbiologique. Les especes de Gracilaria sont difficiles a… Expand
DNA barcoding of the funoran-producing red algal genus Gloiopeltis (Gigartinales) and description of a new species, Gloiopeltis frutex sp. nov.
The funoran-producing red macroalga, Gloiopeltis, is known for its commercial uses. Since the economic value of Gloiopeltis is species-dependent, accurate species identification using molecular… Expand
Molecular analyses for identification of the Gracilariaceae (Rhodophyta) from the Asia–Pacific region
The family Gracilariaceae contains economically important seaweeds and is well known as a difficult group for the species identification due to its high species diversity and uncertainty of species… Expand
Molecular identification of Grateloupia elliptica and G. lanceolata (Rhodophyta) inferred from plastid rbcL and mitochondrial COI genes sequence data
The marine red algae Grateloupia is the largest genus in the family Halymeniaceae and widely distributed from tropical to warm temperate regions of the world. In the genus Grateloupia, especially G.… Expand
New record of Hypnea flexicaulis in New Zealand and description of Calliblepharis psammophilus sp. nov.
Abstract The genus Hypnea has been known in New Zealand for a long time but identification to species level has been difficult as only fragmentary and sterile material has been available for study… Expand
Morphology and molecular study of Pterosiphonia arenosa sp. nov. (Rhodomelaceae, Rhodophyta) from Jeju Island, Korea
The genus Pterosiphonia is composed of 22 species worldwide and four of these species have been reported in the North-East Asia. In Korea, P. pennata originally described from the Mediterranean Sea… Expand
Cryptonemia asiatica sp. nov. (Halymeniaceae, Rhodophyta), a new marine macroalgal species from Korea and Japan
We propose Cryptonemia asiatica sp. nov. from Korea and Japan. We used molecular analyses of plastid-encoded rbcL and morphological observations to resolve the taxonomic identities of C. lactuca from… Expand
Taxonomy of Grateloupia (Halymeniales, Rhodophyta) by DNA barcode marker analysis and a description of Pachymeniopsis volvita sp. nov.
We applied DNA barcoding analysis to the red alga Grateloupia because it is one of the most complicated taxa in the family Halymeniaceae. We used two DNA barcoding markers, the 5′ end of the… Expand
