Colonization, succession and growth rates of tropical crustose coralline algae (Rhodophyta, Cryptonemiales)*
TLDR
The colonization, taxonomic succession and marginal growth and accretion rates of crustose corallines on artificial substrates in algal ridge and reef environments on St Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands were examined and mean rates are about an order of magnitude greater than those previously measured in subarctic waters.

Studies on the Maerl Species Phymatolithon calcareum (Pallas) nov. comb. and Lithothamnium coralloides Crouan in the Ria de Vigo
TLDR
After studying extensive collections from Brittany, the South of England, Galway Bay, Ireland and the Orkney Islands, the \vriters have agreed with CABIOCH'S species Separation and the surface characteristics by \vhich she differentiates the plants. Expand
The crustose coralline algae (Rhodophyta, Corallinaceae) of the Hawaiian Islands
Crustose corallines were collected from a wide range of depths (intertidal to about 300 m) throughout the Hawaiian Archipelago. A total of 25 species in 10 genera are recognized on the basis ofExpand
THE EFFECTS OF LIGHT AND TEMPERATURE ON GROWTH RATES IN BOREAL‐SUBARCTIC CRUSTOSE CORALLINES 1
TLDR
A number of boreal‐subarctic crustose corallines were kept in natural seawater tanks and using fluorescent lamps at light intensities and the resultant growth rates as a function of temperature and light are presented and discussed in relation to the ecology of the plants. Expand

  • 24 November 1978
TLDR
Growth potentials of Caribbean and Indo-Pacific reefs are probably equivalent, but major differences are probably not due to biological or direct climatic factors but are in part related to differing patterns of sea level rise resulting from Holocene crustal adjustment. Expand
Phosphorus Removal from Natural Waters Using Controlled Algal Production
A series of experiments designed to demonstrate the potential of using managed, attached algal production to permanently remove excess phosphorus from agricultural run-off is described. TheExpand
A controlled stream mesocosm for tertiary treatment of sewage
Freshwater stream ecosystems are well known for their capabilities for “self-purification” of sewage and other wastewaters. Unfortunately, the efficiencies of treatment are low and concentrations andExpand
Crustose Coralline Algae: A Re-evaluation in the Geological Sciences
The crustose coralline algae are well known in shallow tropical waters as reef frame-builders and sediment producers. Although their abundance at greater depths and in arctic waters has beenExpand
Phosphorus removal from wastewater using an algal turf scrubber
Algal turf scrubbing is a novel technology for the treatment of agricultural runoff and eutrophic lake water and may have application for wastewater treatment. The algal turf scrubber (ATS)TMExpand
