The biology of biofouling diatoms and their role in the development of microbial slimes
Diatoms are a major component of microbial slimes that develop on man-made surfaces placed in the marine environment. Toxic antifouling paints, as well as environmentally friendly, fouling-releaseExpand

PRIMARY ADHESION OF ENTEROMORPHA (CHLOROPHYTA, ULVALES) PROPAGULES: QUANTITATIVE SETTLEMENT STUDIES AND VIDEO MICROSCOPY 1
Quantitative methods and associated kinetic analyses have been used for the first time to study detailed aspects of the settlement and adhesion of various types of Enteromorpha popagule. Time courseExpand

THE COMPLEX POLYSACCHARIDES OF THE RAPHID DIATOM PINNULARIA VIRIDIS (BACILLARIOPHYCEAE) 1
A combination of carbohydrate analysis and atomic force microscopy (AFM) was used to characterize the polysaccharides of the pennate diatom, Pinnularia viridis (Nitzsch) Ehrenberg. PolymericExpand

Adhesion and motility of fouling diatoms on a silicone elastomer
Recent demands for non-toxic antifouling technologies have led to increased interest in coatings based on silicone elastomers that ‘release’ macrofouling organisms when hydrodynamic conditions areExpand

Proteomonas sulcata gen. et sp. nov. (Cryptophyceae), a cryptomonad with two morphologically distinct and alternating forms
Abstract Proteomonas sulcata gen. et sp. nov. (Cryptophyceae) is described from Australian waters. It has an unusual life history involving two morphologically distinct and alternating forms that areExpand

NANOSTRUCTURE OF THE DIATOM FRUSTULE AS REVEALED BY ATOMIC FORCE AND SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY
The cell wall (frustule) of the freshwater diatom Pinnularia viridis (Nitzsch) Ehrenberg is composed of an assembly of highly silicified components and associated organic layers. We used atomic forceExpand

Development of the initial diatom microfouling layer on antifouling and fouling-release surfaces in temperate and tropical Australia
Diatoms are a major component of the slime layers that form on artificial surfaces in marine environments. In this article, the role played by diatoms during the pioneering stages of colonization ofExpand

The glucans extracted with warm water from diatoms are mainly derived from intracellular chrysolaminaran and not extracellular polysaccharides
Several recent studies have employed warm-water treatment of diatom cells to extract nominally bound extracellular polymeric substances. Where examined, the dominant neutral sugar in these extractsExpand

Development of the primary bacterial microfouling layer on antifouling and fouling release coatings in temperate and tropical environments in Eastern Australia
The role played by bacteria during the pioneering stages of colonisation on marine coatings was investigated over three distinct seasons in both tropical and temperate environments. Novel methodsExpand
