Macrocystis (Lessoniaceae) displays an antitropical distribution, occurring in temperate subtidal regions along western North America in the northern hemisphere and throughout the southern hemisphere. We used the noncoding rDNA internal transcribed spacer regions (ITS1 and ITS2) to examine relatedness among (1) Macrocystis and several genera of Laminariales, (2) four species of Macrocystis (M. integrifolia Bory from the northern hemisphere, M. angustifolia Bory and M. laevis Hay from the… 

Molecular phylogeny and biogeography of Ecklonia spp. (Laminariales, Phaeophyceae) in Japan revealed taxonomic revision of E. kurome and E. stolonifera

TLDR
E. radicosa was revealed to be an independent species, and synonymy between Eckloniopsis and Ecklonia was supported, and the independence of morphospecies E. cava, E. kurome, and E. stolonifera at species level was not supported.

The rDNA ITS Region in the Lessepsian Marine Angiosperm Halophila stipulacea (Forssk.) Aschers. (Hydrocharitaceae): Intragenomic Variability and Putative Pseudogenic Sequences

TLDR
This work compares genetic polymorphism between putative native (Red Sea) and introduced (Mediterranean) populations through rDNA ITS region (ITS1-5.8S-ITS2) sequence analysis and finds a high degree of intraindividual variability of ITS sequences.

DNA BARCODING AND GENETIC DIVERGENCE IN THE GIANT KELP MACROCYSTIS (LAMINARIALES) 1

TLDR
The authors' molecular data strongly support the recognition of a single species of Macrocystis; therefore, the genus should contain only one species, M. pyrifera, the oldest name.

Haplotype diversity of Macrocystis pyrifera (Phaeophyceae: Laminariales) in the central and southern coast of Peru

TLDR
The aim of this study was to analyze the genetic variability of M. pyrifera, using the mitochondrial markers atp8-S, in eight locations covering 2500 Km of coastline from Perú, including unique haplotypes in two sites.

Multiple rDNA ITS-types within the diatom Pseudo-nitzschia delicatissima (Bacillariophyceae) and their relative abundances across a spring bloom in the Gulf of Naples

TLDR
The results, supported by the analysis of the hypervariable domains of LSU (large subunit) rDNA carried out on selected strains, suggest the presence of cryptic diversity within P. delicatissima could in fact explain the existence of toxic and non- toxic strains within the same species and the occasional mismatches between 'species-specific' mol- ecular probes and target species.

Phylogenetic characterization of cryptic species of the marine dinoflagellate, Ostreopsis sp. Shmidt, 1902, from Russian coastal waters, the Sea of Japan

TLDR
High genetic homogeneity of SSU rDNA within the Russian strain that allowed us to reliably estimate distinctions among populations from different regions and homogeneity within population is revealed.

Macrocystis (Laminariales, Phaeophyceae) in South Africa: distribution, morphology, and potential susceptibility to warming events

Macrocystis pyrifera (Laminariales), widely known as “giant kelp,” is dominant on temperate coastlines of the eastern Pacific and the Southern Hemisphere. It is recorded in South Africa, but with

Colpomenia claytonii sp. nov. (Scytosiphonaceae, Phaeophyceae) based on morphology and mitochondrial cox3 sequences

TLDR
The present study shows that C. claytonii is a widely distributed species across the Pacific Ocean to South Africa; it was previously misidentified as a variant of C. peregrina.

Phylogeography of the marine macroalga Sargassum hemiphyllum (Phaeophyceae, Heterokontophyta) in northwestern Pacific

TLDR
Based on more markers in the nuclear and extranuclear genomes, hybridization among the Japanese and Korean populations of S. hemiphyllum is highly probable as all these individuals share a pool of nuclear ITS2 sequences, possibly attributable to incomplete concerted evolution of ITS2.

EVOLUTION OF THE FUCACEAE (PHAEOPHYCEAE) INFERRED FROM nrDNA‐ITS

TLDR
Mapping of the two characters that form the basis of Powell’s model for speciation in the Fucaceae showed that number of eggs per oogonium has not followed a gradual reduction and that monoecy/dioecy has changed several times during evolution of this family.

NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE HYBRIDS OF MACROCYSTIS (PHAEOPHYCEAE) 1

TLDR
The results show that these species of Macrocystis have not become reproductively isolated, and it is recommended that they continue to be recognized as separate species based on morphological differences.

Ribosomal DNA sequences support taxonomic separation of the two species of Chorda: reinstatement of Halosiphon tomentosus (Lyngbye) Jaasund (Phaeophyceae, Laminariales)

TLDR
Comparison of DNA sequences of variable parts of the small subunit of the nuclear ribosomal cistron and of relatively conserved areas of both internal transcribed spacers of several taxa of the Sporochnales–Desmarestiales–Laminariales complex revealed that the two species of Chorda are not closely related and do not form a clade.

Nucleotide sequences of the internal transcribed spacers and 5.8S rRNA genes from Alaria marginata and Postelsia palmaeformis (Phaeophyta: Laminariales)

TLDR
Putative stem-loops, possibly involved in post-transcriptional processing, have been identified for these two phaeophycean taxa in a conserved region immediately upstream (5′) from the 5.8S gene.

A new species of Macrocystis C. Ag. (Phaeophyta) from Marion Island, southern Indian Ocean

  • C. Hay
  • Environmental Science
  • 1986
TLDR
A new species of kelp, Macrocystis laevis, is described from Marion Island in the southern Indian Ocean with characteristic blades that are fleshy and perfectly smooth–never corrugated or rugose as with other species in the genus.

DISCOVERY OF A FERTILE PELAGOPHYCUS×MACROCYSTIS(PHAEOPHYTA) PUTATIVE HYBRID AND SUBSEQUENT PRODUCTION OF F2 SPOROPHYTES IN THE LABORATORY 1

TLDR
A fertile putative hybrid of Pelagophycus porra (Lem.)Setch and Macrocystis pyrifera (L.) was discovered in Big Fisherman Cove, Santa Catalina Island, California, in March 1986, andGametophyte development of spores released from sori and the resulting early sporophtes were typical of Laminariales.

HYBRIDIZATION OF MACROCYSTIS (PHAEOPHYTA) WITH OTHER FLOAT‐BEARING KELPS 1, 2

TLDR
Sporophytes were produced in 22 out of 23 attempts to cross Macrocystia angustifolia Bory with Pelagophycus porra (Lemon) Setchell, and the plants resulting from this intergeneric cross were intermediate in morphology between the parental genera.

A RIBOSOMAL DNA PHYLOGENY SUPPORTS THE CLOSE EVOLUTIONARY RELATIONSHIPS AMONG THE SPOROCHNALES, DESMARESTIALES, AND LAMINARIALES (PHAEOPHYCEAE) 1

TLDR
The inferred 18S phylogenies clustered Sporochnus, Desmarestia, Chorda, Saccorhiza, Alaria, and Macrocystis in an assemblage, and support the contention that thesporochnales,desmarestiales, and Laminariales are closely related.

Interspecific hybridization of the species of Macrocystis in California

Ecology of Kelp Communities

TLDR
The giant kelp, Macrocystispyrifera, forms dense forests in many parts of the world including areas of the northeast Pacific, the southern shores of South America, many Southern Ocean islands, and isolated areas of South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.
