A REASSESSMENT OF PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS WITHIN THE PHAEOPHYCEAE BASED ON RUBISCO LARGE SUBUNIT AND RIBOSOMAL DNA SEQUENCES
To better assess the current state of phaeophycean phylogeny, we compiled all currently available rbcL, 18S, and 26S rDNA sequences from the EMBL/GenBank database and added 21 new rbcL sequences of
DEFINING TAXON BOUNDARIES IN MEMBERS OF THE MORPHOLOGICALLY AND GENETICALLY PLASTIC GENES CAULERPA (CAULERPALES, CHLOROPHYTA) 1
TLDR
Results indicated a strong association between light intensity and several quantitative morphological variables, and a subset of morphological characters traditionally used in taxonomic delimitation still had sufficient discriminative power to recognize the terminal phylogenetic clades.
A revised classification of the Sphacelariales (Phaeophyceae) inferred from a psbC and rbcL based phylogeny
TLDR
A pilot study showed a strongly supported monophyly of the Sphacelariales with its sister taxa Phaeostrophion irregulare, Bodanella lauterborni and Heribaudiella fluviatilis, while Bayesian Inference and Maximum Likelihood trees showed some incongruence with Maximum Parsimony trees.
Deep-water macroalgae from the Canary Islands: new records and biogeographical relationships
Due to the geographical location and paleobiogeography of the Canary Islands, the seaweed flora contains macroalgae with different distributional patterns. In this contribution, the biogeographical
A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF TEMPERATURE RESPONSES OF CARIBBEAN SEAWEEDS FROM DIFFERENT BIOGEOGRAPHIC GROUPS1
TLDR
Differences in low‐temperature tolerances in Caribbean populations of species from different distribution groups reflect adaptations to glacial cold‐stress in the tropical eastern Atlantic and subsequent trans‐Atlantic dispersal.
A combined barcode and morphological approach to the systematics and biogeography of Laurencia pyramidalis and Laurenciella marilzae (Rhodophyta)
TLDR
An integrative approach, using both morphological and molecular data (COI-5P + rbcL), is undertook, to assess the presence of Laurencia pyramidalis in Lusitanian Macaronesia and the geographical distribution of LaureNCiella marilzae, a species recently described from the Canary Islands.
Spongophloea, a new genus of red algae based on Thamnoclonium sect. Nematophorae Weber-van Bosse (Halymeniales)
TLDR
Both morphological and DNA sequence analyses support the segregation of Thamnoclonium sect.
Studies on Dasyaceae. II. A Revision of the Genera Eupogodon and Dipterocladia gen. nov. (Ceramiales, Rhodophyta)
Dipterocladia YSDM de Jong gen. nov., a genus containing marine red algal species belonging to the Dasyaceae, Ceramiales, formerly put into Eupogodon Kützing, is described and a revision of the genus
Beta diversity of macroalgal communities around St. Eustatius, Dutch Caribbean
This study provides a baseline of the marine algal flora composition around St. Eustatius, Dutch Caribbean, by describing algal community structure in terms of species richness and beta diversity,
