Generic concepts in the economically important agarophyte red algal family Gracilariaceae were evaluated based on maximum parsimony, Bayesian likelihood, and minimum evolution analyses of the chloroplast-encoded rbcL gene from 67 specimens worldwide. The results confirm the monophyly of the family and identify three large clades, one of which corresponds to the ancestral antiboreal genera Curdiea and Melanthalia, one to Gracilariopsis, and one to Gracilaria sensu lato, which contains nine… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Gracilaria coppejansii sp. nov. (Gracilariales, Rhodophyta), a new flattened species from the Andaman coast of southern Thailand

A new flattened Gracilaria species is described from Phuket Island, Thailand, which is mainly characterized by thalli with dichotomous branching, numerous proliferations on the blade margin of female gametophytes, textorii-type spermatangial conceptacles and a few nutritive filamentous cells in mature cystocarps.

Gracilaria microcarpa sp. nov. (Gracilariaceae, Rhodophyta) from the southwestern Gulf of Mexico

A group of cylindrical specimens from the southeastern Gulf of Mexico, previously identified as G. cornea, formed an independent group closely related to G. ferox, a flat species, and is proposed as Gracilaria microcarpa sp.

Genetic diversity of Gracilaria changii (Gracilariaceae, Rhodophyta) from west coast, Peninsular Malaysia based on mitochondrial cox1 gene analysis

Mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (cox1) was employed to investigate the intraspecific genetic diversity of Gracilaria changii collected from various localities distributed along the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia and results indicate that haplotype C1 is the common ancestor and the most widespread haplotype.

Observations on Flattened Species of Gracilaria (Gracilariaceae, Rhodophyta) from Taiwan

Four flattened Gracilaria species have been reported from Taiwan, identified based on branching pattern, the presence or absence of spines, and characters that often vary seasonally, to form a single clade characterized by cystocarps with basal tubular nutritive cells and their absence in the Cystocarp cavity.

MORPHOLOGICAL VARIATIONS OF GRACILARIA CHILENSIS BIRD,

The data suggest that along the coast of Chile there is only one morphotype that corresponds to the description of Gacilaria chilensis Bird, McLachlan et Oliveira, 1986 and it fits to the bulk of the material utilized in commercial production.

Taxonomic study of crustose coralline algae off the northeastern Brazilian coast

This work presents a detailed morphoanatomical study of crustose coralline algae species from the northeastern Brazilian coast, in the north of Bahia state, with some ecological implications focusing the need of more studies about this neglected group of corallines red algae.

Inventory of benthic marine and estuarine algae and Cyanobacteria for Tabasco, México

Studies of benthic marine and estuarine algae as well as Cyanobacteria are in their early stages in the littoral of the state of Tabasco. Sixty seven taxa of seaweeds are currently known from

UPTAKE AND RELEASE OF NITROGEN BY THE MACROALGAE GRACILARIA VERMICULOPHYLLA ( RHODOPHYTA )

Macroalgae, often the dominant primary producers in shallow estuaries, can be important regulators of nitrogen (N) cycling. Like phytoplankton, actively growing macroalgae release N to the water

Aspectos ecológicos de Gracilaria Grev. (Gracilariales, Rhodophyta) em uma praia tropical brasileira

Knowledge of marine algae ecology along the Brazilian coast is thin, despite the fact that the Northeast of Brazil is rich in agar producing species such as Agar Corpse and Black-winged Pratincole, according to a study published in the journal PLOS One.

SYSTEMATICS OF GRACILARIOPSIS (GRACILARIALES, RHODOPHYTA) BASED ON rbcL SEQUENCE ANALYSES AND MORPHOLOGICAL EVIDENCE 1

A phylogeny has been inferred from parsimony and likelihood analyses of plastid rbcL DNA sequences for seven recognized and six undescribed species of Gracilariopsis (Gp.) (Gracilariales,

PHYLOGENY AND SYSTEMATICS OF THE MARINE ALGAL FAMILY GRACILARIACEAE (GRACILARIALES, RHODOPHYTA) BASED ON SMALL SUBUNIT rDNA AND ITS SEQUENCES OF ATLANTIC AND PACIFIC SPECIES1

Sequencing of the small subunit rDNA and internal transcribed spacer region of Gracilariaceae from the tropical Atlantic and Pacific indicates that more populations from the Indo‐Pacific must be studied before a general picture of Graciliaceae evolution can be framed.

Molecular relationships among the Gracilariaceae (Rhodophyta): further observations on some undetermined species

We have used molecular characteristics to clarify the taxonomic status of three problematic gracilarioid algae, by comparison with existing data for the Gracilariaceae. Nucleotide sequences of

Phylogenetic relationships in the Gracilariales (Rhodophyta) as determined by 18S rDNA sequences

In parsimony, distance, and maximum-likelihood trees based on the sequence data, Gracilariopsis was well separated from the rest of the order, the austral genera Curdiea and Melanthalia formed a clade broadly divergent from Gracilaria, and within Gracilarianes, Hydropuntia was affiliated with G. tikvahiae McLachlan, a species with Textorii-type spermatangia.

Gracilaria caudata J. Agardh (Gracilariales, Rhodophyta)—restoring an old name for a common western Atlantic alga

In a study to clarify the identity of this alga, it is concluded that it cannot be separated from a Gracilaria species described by J. Agardh in 1852 as G. caudata based on material from the Caribbean.

Taxonomic studies of the genus Gracilaria (Gracilariales, Rhodophyta) from Australia

The taxonomic history of the genus Gracilaria in Australia is reviewed, and nine species are described and illustrated in detail, and two new species are newly described.

MOLECULAR SYSTEMATICS OF THE FLORIDEOPHYCEAE (RHODOPHYTA) USING NUCLEAR LARGE AND SMALL SUBUNIT rDNA SEQUENCE DATA

Phylogenetic trees produced from SSU‐only analyses differed somewhat in particulars of branching within lineages 2 and 4 but overall were congruent with the LSU‐only and combined LSU–SSU results.

SYSTEMATICS OF THE DELESSERIACEAE (CERAMIALES, RHODOPHYTA) BASED ON LARGE SUBUNIT rDNA AND rbcL SEQUENCES, INCLUDING THE PHYCODRYOIDEAE, SUBFAM. NOV.

The Kylin system is tested based on phylogenetic parsimony and distance analyses inferred from two molecular data sets and morphological evidence, and a new subfamily, Phycodryoideae, is proposed.

Morphology, reproduction and taxonomy of the Mediterranean species of Gracilaria (Gracilariales, Rhodophyta)

An examination of the reproductive morphology of these species suggests that the currently accepted criteria for distinguishing between the genera Gracilaria, Hydropuntia (Polycavernosa) and Gracilariopsis are not sustainable, particularly with regard to the development and nutrition of the developing carposporophyte and the formation of sperrnatangia.

GRACILARIA FROM THE GULF OF MEXICO, WITH SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON GRACILARIA TIKVAHIAE BASED ON TWO MOLECULAR DATASETS

A chloroplast‐encoded rbcL phylogeny encompassing primarily Gulf, western Atlantic, and Caribbean species is provided, indicating the need to resurrect older, validly published names currently placed in synonymy under other species of Gracilaria, and to describe new species.
