Schizomeris Kutzing is a filamentous alga without ramifications and with differentiated basal attachment system. The genus contains the type species Schizomeris leibleinii Kutzing and the two poorly known species S. irregularis Fritsch & Rich and S. indicum (Ghose) Fritsch & Rich. The species are differentiated mostly by the basal attachment system type. However, the specific taxonomy of the genus is confused. Morphometrical and morphological studies were conducted in populations identified as…

Ecballocystis pulvinata Bohlin (Hormotilaceae, Chlorophyta): morfologia externa e ocorrência em ambientes lóticos da região Sudeste do Brasil

TLDR
The characteristic that varied more was the chloroplasts number, suggesting that this attribute is not a reliable taxonomic character, and these habitat conditions are the most appropriate to its development.

On a new cytological race of schizomeris leibleinii Kütz

TLDR
The chromosome number for the present alga has been determined to be 14, which differs from three earlier chromosome numbers reported for the same species by previous workers, and it is considered to be a new chromosomal race of S. leibleinii.

The cytology and classification of Schizomeris leibleinii (Chlorophyceae). I. The vegetative thallus

TLDR
Schizomeris is similar to the investigated chaetophoralean algae in these and other respects and should be considered a distinct genus, apparently related to the Chaetophileales.

Microhabitat and morphometric variation of two Chaetophoracean (Chaetophorales, Chlorophyta) species in tropical streams of southeastern Brazil

TLDR
The results suggest that S. helveticum is a generalist species and this green alga is able to grow in a high number of stream ecosystems in the region investigated, ranging from undisturbed to highly disturbed habitats.

The cytology and classification of Schizomeris leibleinii (Chlorophyceae). II. The structure of quadriflagellate zoospores

TLDR
It is suggested that a flagellar ring such as occurs in the Oedogoniales may have evolved from quadriflagellate zoospores similar to those of Schizomeris, which probably contain an equal number of microtubules.

Chaetophoraceae, Microsporaceae, Schizomeridaceae, and Ulotrichaceae from Biological Reserve of Poço das Antas, state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

TLDR
Floristic survey of representatives of families Chaetophoraceae, Microsporaceae, Schizomeridaceae, and Ulotrichaceae from Biological Reserve of Poco das Antas located in the municipality of Silva Jardim, state of Rio de Janeiro, southeastern Brazil identified nine taxa which were assigned to the 4 following families.

Morphology of the prostrate thallus of Stigeoclonium (Chlorophyceae, Chaetophorales) and its taxonomic implications

TLDR
The development from zoospore to adult stage was followed in detail with the result that no more than three morphological groups can be discerned, which are designated as Stigeoclonium helveticum, S. tenue, and S. farctum.

SCHIZOMERIS—A GROWTH FORM OF STIGEOCLONIUM TENUE (CHLOROPHYTA:CHAETOPHORACEAE) 1

TLDR
Sampling of the plant population of the lake and culture work showed that S. tenue has a high degree of polymorphism, and other forms of it which developed both in theLake and in culture were indistinguishable from Protoderma Kütz.

PHENOTYPIC PLASTICITY IN DRAPARNALDIA (CHLOROPHYTA: CHAETOPHORACEAE). I. EFFECTS OF THE CHEMICAL ENVIRONMENT 1

TLDR
It is suggested that chemical factors alone do not account for either the phemotypec plasticity of Draparnaldia in the field or the failure of others to grow typical plants in culture.

Observations on the Morphology, Cytology, and Asexual Reproduction of Schizomeris leibleinii

TLDR
The nature of the basal cell is believed to be a more reliable taxonomic feature than either the arrangement of cells in multiseriate filaments or the number of pyrenoids per cell.

Ecotypic differentiation in response to nutritional factors in the algal genus Stigeoclonium Kütz. (Chlorophyceae)

Growth responses of several Stigeoclonium strains to increasing levels of phosphate, ammonia and chloride in the culture medium were studied in an attempt to explain the distribution of the strains
