A Preliminary Study of the Algae and Protozoa in Seafoam

  title={A Preliminary Study of the Algae and Protozoa in Seafoam},
  author={E. Harold and J. Schlichting},
Introduction Seafoam, forming along oceanic beaches, seems to link the marine, fresh-water and terrestrial environments. The seafoam populations would be expected to vary from beach to beach depending on these three environments. In areas where there is abundant seasonal rainfall, the fresh-water and psammon forms of algae and Protozoa may predominate while in dry areas such s the Texas coast the marine forms may predominate. At present little is known of the phytopsammon populations of marine… Expand
Direct enumeration of marine arenicolous fungi
The described methods were considered sufficiently sensitive and precise to merit broader application in marine mycology, and with modifications, to the aquatic Hyphomycetes as well. Expand
Seafoam bacteria from the Havelock island of the Andamans, India
This study reveals the presence of THB and pathogenic bacteria in the seafoam; the latter being a signal to the coastal pollution of the island. Expand
The Unknown Life of Airborne Algae
Algae have been studied thoroughly with regard to morphology, physiology and ecology and are duly represented in standard textbooks, but even among botanists there is surprisingly little awareness of the fact that algae can also be found in other than aquatic habitats. Expand
Periodicity and Seasonality of Airborne Algae and Protozoa
Only a few studies in the history of science have been concerned with airborne algae and protozoa, and additional studies of airborne algae are in progress in Brazil, Florida, and Ohio. Expand
Endangered algal species and how to protect them
It is concluded that taxonomic knowledge and a global approach are vital to the conservation of the algae and legislation is considered as the best method in which algae can be given protection. Expand
The Correlation of Soil Algae, Airborne Algae, and Fern Spores with Meteorological Conditions on the Island of Hawaii
St striking relationships were noted in the quantitative determinations of air borne green an d blue-gree n algae and of fern spore impactions with t he varying meteor ological con ditions of rain, fog -mist, and clear, sunny conditions acco mpanying the altitude change. Expand
Organic composition of seafoam and its digestion by Corophium volutator (Pallas)
Abstract Seafoam was collected at two sites in New Brunswick, Canada, and its organic composition was determined. Phenolics, carbohydrates, amino acids, and proteins accounted for 25–90% of the totalExpand
Overlooked Diversity of Ultramicrobacterial Minorities at the Air-Sea Interface
Members of the Candidate phylum Patescibacteria, also called Candidate Phyla Radiation (CPR), are described as ultramicrobacteria with limited metabolic capacities. Wide diversity and relativeExpand
Sea foams are ephemeral hotspots for distinctive bacterial communities contrasting sea-surface microlayer and underlying surface water
The presence of SML bacteria in foams supports the previous assumption that foam is strongly influenced by the SML, and concludes that active and abundant bacteria from interfacial habitats potentially contribute to foam formation and stability, carbon cycling and air–sea exchange processes in the ocean. Expand
Marine foams represent compressed sea-surface microlayer with distinctive bacterial communities
The occurrence of foams at the oceans surface is patchy and generally short-lived. Here we investigated if marine foams as important sea surface phenomena represent a compressed form of theExpand


When Scenedesmus culture 16, a soil organism with numerous long spines, was grown in axenic culture in a dilute laboratory medium (with approximately 30 mg/liter total salts), spines were not formed.Expand
