THE ROLE OF ALTERNATE LIFE-HISTORY STAGES OF A MARINE MACROALGA: A SEED BANK ANALOGUE?

TLDR
Desmarestia gametophytes should be regarded as alternate life-history stages that simply maintain populations under a different set of environmental conditions than the macroscopic sporophytes do, rather than as “dormant” or “resting” stages.

THE ROLE OF ALTERNATE LIFE-HISTORY STAGES OF MACROALGA: A SEED BANK ANALOGUE? A MARINE

TLDR
Desmarestia gametophytes should be regarded as al- ternate life-history stages that simply maintain populations under a different set of envi- ronmental conditions than the macroscopic sporophytes do, rather than as "dormant" or "resting" stages.

Effects of Temperature on Sexual Competition in Kelps: Implications for Range Shifts in Foundation Species

TLDR
Investigating how temperature affects sexual competition between microscopic stages of three co-existing and possibly competitive kelps in central California demonstrated that temperature could alter the competitive hierarchies among these three species and suggests that increasing ocean temperatures due to climate change will favor Macrocystis over Nereocystis and Pterygophora, increasing MacroCystis’ dominance along the central California coast.

Determinazione del Tasso di crescita dell’alga coralline elongata (Rhodophyta) in ambiente controllato ed in ambiente natural tramite l’utilizzo dei marcatori alizarin red and calcofluor white

L’ordine Corallinales (Rhodophyta) e caratterizzato da alghe calcaree in grado di costruire strutture biogeniche giocando un ruolo chiave come promotori di biodiversita e produttori di carbonato di

QUANTIFYING GROWTH AND CALCIUM CARBONATE DEPOSITION OF CALLIARTHRON CHEILOSPORIOIDES (CORALLINALES, RHODOPHYTA) IN THE FIELD USING A PERSISTENT VITAL STAIN 1

TLDR
Growth rates reported here suggest that large fronds may not be as old as previously estimated, and the Calcofluor white method may improve demographic studies of corallines by resolving growth and age of fronds in the field and may facilitate studies of climate change on calcium carbonate deposition in these ecologically important, calcifying algae.

Isolation of protoplasts from edible seaweeds

  • 2006
TLDR
Protoplasts were isolated enzymatically from three species of Chlorophyta (Enteromorpha linza, Monostroma zostericola and Ulva pertusa) with high yield and viability and could not be obtained from members of Phaeophyta or Rhodophyta.

Isolation and culture of protoplasts from the marine green algaMonostroma angicava

TLDR
Protoplasts were isolated enzymatically from gametophytes of the marine green algaMonostroma angicava and regenerated in PES medium after gradual reduction of the osmoticum, and became fertile in successive cultures.

Analysis of cell elongation in red algae by fluorescent labelling

TLDR
Cell walls of elongating intercalary cells of each of these algae are essentially isotropic, indicating a net random orientation of cell-wall microfibrils.

Cell wall regeneration and cell division in isolated tobacco mesophyll protoplasts

TLDR
Calcofluor, a fluorescent brightener, was found to be an excellent stain for plant cell walls and was used to demonstrate regeneration of cell walls in these protoplasts, giving rise to spherical cells.

Using in situ substratum sterilization and fluorescence microscopy in studies of microscopic stages of marine macroalgae

The methods currently used for examining the relative contribution of microscopic stages to the persistence of natural populations of marine macroalgae can be inappropriate for use in subtidal
