Abstract Seasonal light requirements and temperature tolerance of the Mediterranean green alga Caulerpa taxifolia (Vahl) C. Agardh were examined by means of photosynthetic assays. Highest photosynthetic rates ( P max ) were obtained in late fall (17.9 mg O 2 g −1 organic dry weight h −1 ), while low values were observed from January to April (7.2-4.0 mg O 2 g −1 organic dry weight h −1 ). Caulerpa taxifolia displayed low saturation and compensation points (68–166 mmol m −2 s −1 and 1.8–11.5… CONTINUE READING
