Tolerance to oxidative stress induced by desiccation in Porphyra columbina (Bangiales, Rhodophyta)
TLDR
The results indicate that desiccation in P. columbina causes overproduction of ROS that is efficiently attenuated and could be operating as tolerance mechanisms due to the fact that these responses principally prevent biomolecular alteration and cellular collapse. Expand
CONVERGENT BIOLOGICAL PROCESSES IN COALESCING RHODOPHYTA
TLDR
The widespread occurrence of coalescence inroughly half the number of orders of the Florideophycidae, the similarity of the coalescence process, and the finding of various adaptive traits associated with coalescence characterizes this as a unique growth style, splitting the diversity of species now included in theFlorideophyCidae into two major groups: coalescing and noncoalescing Rhodophyta.

Phospholipases and Galactolipases Trigger Oxylipin‐Mediated Wound‐Activated Defence in the Red Alga Gracilaria chilensis against Epiphytes
TLDR
The immediate release of oxylipins can be seen as G. chilensis defence against epiphytes as well as the hydroxylated eicosanoids after wounding. Expand
IDENTIFICATION OF CRYPTIC SPECIES IN THE LESSONIA NIGRESCENS COMPLEX (PHAEOPHYCEAE, LAMINARIALES) 1
TLDR
It is concluded that the name Lessonia nigrescens should not be used for the Chilean material and the new combination Lessonia spicata (Suhr) Santelices is proposed for the central lineage and Lessonia berteroana for the northern lineage. Expand
Diversity, phenomenology and epidemiology of epiphytism in farmed Gracilaria chilensis (Rhodophyta) in northern Chile
TLDR
The most common epiphytes infecting the algal host Gracilaria chilensis on a farm in northern Chile were identified and their relative abundance and temporal variability were monitored. Expand
Life-Cycle Stages of a Posthodiplostomum Species (Digenea: Diplostomidae) from Patagonia, Argentina
TLDR
This is the first description of sporocysts, cercariae, metacercariaes, and adults stages of a Posthodiplostomum species in Patagonia, including data about its natural intermediate hosts. Expand
Larval Digenean Community Parasitizing the Freshwater Snail, Chilina dombeyana (Pulmonata: Chilinidae) in Patagonia, Argentina, with Special Reference to the Notocotylid Catatropis chilinae
TLDR
No robust evidence of antagonistic interactions was found in the digenean community of C. dombeyana from Lake Mascardi, an oligotrophic Andean Patagonian lake, and Catatropis chilinae was the dominant species in all months and across all snail size classes. Expand
Presence of Corbicula fluminea in the Upper Negro River Basin (Patagonia, Argentina)
ABSTRACT The invasive Asiatic clam, Corbicula fluminea (Müller, 1778) was recorded in new western localities of Patagonia. Based on the sizes of the sampled specimens, we estimated that the firstExpand
Metazoan Parasites of Galaxias maculatus (Osmeriformes: Galaxiidae) from Argentinean Patagonia
TLDR
Although this checklist enlarges the knowledge of G. maculatus parasites, a large portion of Patagonia remains unexplored, and many of its lakes and rivers have never been surveyed for parasites, especially in the southern part of the region. Expand
Up-Regulation of Lipoxygenase, Phospholipase, and Oxylipin-Production in the Induced Chemical Defense of the Red Alga Gracilaria chilensis against Epiphytes
TLDR
It is demonstrated that an extract of an epiphyte-challenged alga can trigger a defense response and that neither jasmonic acid nor the algal metabolite prostaglandin E2 triggers comparable defense responses. Expand
