Summary Caulerpenyne is the most abundant, toxic terpenoid produced by Caulerpa taxifolia , one of the few toxigenic, green seaweed endemic in the tropics. Owing to the bewildering high concentration of this harmful secondary metabolite, associated with largely magnified homeostatic and reproductive potentialities, the strain(s) of C. taxifolia invading the Mediterranean Sea are a potential risk for biodiversity and ecotoxicity. The effects of caulerpenyne on the biology of the marine ciliate… Expand
