A NEW LOOK AT AN ANCIENT ORDER: GENERIC REVISION OF THE BANGIALES (RHODOPHYTA) 1
The red algal order Bangiales has been revised as a result of detailed regional studies and the development of expert local knowledge of Bangiales floras, followed by collaborative global analysesExpand
Morphological and AFLP variation of Porphyra yezoensis Ueda form, narawaensis Miura (Bangiales, Rhodophyta)
TLDR
This is the first report to identify currently cultivated Porphyra strains in Japan based on combined results of detailed morphological observations and molecular analysis, indicating that the two pure lines certainly show genetic variation, which is, however, at an extremely low level. Expand
Culture Studies of Four Species of Porphyra(Rhodophyta) from Japan.
TLDR
In these four species, the optimum temperature and photoperiod for growth of the conchocelis- and foliose-phases were similar; 20-25°C under 14L: 10D for the conchosporangial-phase and 15-20°Cunder 1OL: 14D for foliOSE thalli. Expand
Comparative analyses of the distribution of various transposable elements in Pyricularia and their activity during and after the sexual cycle
TLDR
Analysis of the sequences flanking the new MAGGY insertions revealed that they were each associated with a 5-bp target-site duplication at both ends of the insertion, suggesting that MAGGY was the most active of the elements tested for transposition in Pyricularia. Expand
MORPHOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR ANALYSIS OF THE ENDANGERED SPECIES PORPHYRA TENERA (BANGIALES, RHODOPHYTA) 1
TLDR
PCR‐RFLP analysis of the internal transcribed spacer region was found to be a convenient method for rapid discrimination between P. tenera and cultivated P. narawaensis strains and will serve as a valuable tool for rapid species identification of cultivated Porphyra strains. Expand
Porphyra migitae sp. nov. (Bangiales, Rhodophyta) from Japan
TLDR
This species has the widest range of asexual reproductive strategies so far observed in the Bangiales and molecular phylogenies based on both the nuclear SSU rDNA and the rbcL genes enable this species to be distinguished from other species of Porphyra for which there are equivalent data. Expand
GENETIC DIVERSITY AND INTROGRESSION IN TWO CULTIVATED SPECIES (PORPHYRA YEZOENSIS AND PORPHYRA TENERA) AND CLOSELY RELATED WILD SPECIES OF PORPHYRA (BANGIALES, RHODOPHYTA) 1
TLDR
It is inferred that the samples from natural populations of P. yezoensis and P. tenera showed remarkably higher genetic variations than found in strains that are currently used for cultivation, implying the importance of collecting and establishing more strains of cultivated Porphyra species and related wild species fromnatural populations as genetic resources for further improvement of cultivated porphyra strains. Expand
Cryptic species in the Pyropia yezoensis complex (Bangiales, Rhodophyta): Sympatric occurrence of two cryptic species even on same rocks
TLDR
Both of the two wild Pyropia species are cryptic species within the P. yezoensis complex, and it is revealed that the two cryptic species grew sympatrically, even on the same rocks within the natural habitat. Expand
PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS WITHIN THE STYLONEMATALES (STYLONEMATOPHYCEAE, RHODOPHYTA): BIOGEOGRAPHIC PATTERNS DO NOT APPLY TO STYLONEMA ALSIDII 1
TLDR
The results indicated that the genera are mostly well supported, except for the position of Stylonema cornu‐cervi with Goniotrichopsis reniformis, while intergeneric relationships are mostly unsupported, and it would appear that at least S. alsidii is a true ubiquitous taxon. Expand
Use of PCR-RFLP for the discrimination of Japanese Porphyra and Pyropia species (Bangiales, Rhodophyta)
TLDR
It was concluded that PCR-RFLP analysis is a valuable tool for discrimination of wild strains of Porphyra and Pyropia species for potential use in mariculture. Expand
