Resolving phenotypic plasticity and species designation in the morphologically challenging Caulerpa racemosa–peltata complex (Chlorophyta, Caulerpaceae)
TLDR
The number of genetic species within the Caulerpa racemosa–peltata complex was determined through a combination of phylogenetic and species‐delimitation approaches of partial elongation factor TU and RUBISCO large subunit gene sequences and names for the lineages were confidently designated. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships within the Sphacelariales (Phaeophyceae): rbcL, RUBISCO spacer and morphology
TLDR
Blackening in response to bleach and the presence of secondary segments were found to be basal synapomorphies for the Sphacelariales ; presence of propagules with a lenticular central apical cell defines the Propagulifera; and strict acroblastic branching mode and axillary zoidangia define the Stypocaulaceae.

Molecular diversity of the Caulerpa racemosa–Caulerpa peltata complex (Caulerpaceae, Bryopsidales) in New Caledonia, with new Australasian records for C. racemosa var. cylindracea

Marine benthic macroalgae collected by Vieillard from New Caledonia and described as new species by Kützing
TLDR
This work has resulted in seven new combinations and three new names being proposed, many of which have now been found to be conspecific with either previously described species, or are species for which more recent names have been unwittingly applied. Expand
Morphological and molecular evidence for two new species of Padina (Dictyotales, Phaeophyceae), P. sulcata and P. calcarea, from the central Indo-Pacific region

Notes on Marine Algae Collected in Guinea-Bissau, Tropical West Africa
Abstract A total of 15 taxa of marine benthic algae from Guinea-Bissau are identified, namely 3 in the Chlorophyceae, 5 in the Phaeophyceae and 7 in the Rhodophyceae. All of these are new records forExpand
