The genus Asparagopsis was studied using 25 Falkenbergia tetrasporophyte strains collected worldwide. Plastid (cp) DNA RFLP revealed three groups of isolates, which differed in their small subunit rRNA gene sequences, temperature responses, and tetrasporophytic morphology (cell sizes). Strains from Australia, Chile, San Diego, and Atlantic and Mediterranean Europe were identifiable as A. armata Harvey, the gametophyte of which has distinctive barbed spines. This species is believed to be… 
Asparagopsis taxiformis and Asparagopsis armata (Bonnemaisoniales, Rhodophyta): genetic and morphological identification of Mediterranean populations
The tropical-subtropical red seaweed Asparagopsis Montagne (Bonnemaisoniales) constitutes the haploid, gametophytic phase in a heteromorphic diplo-haplontic life cycle. The diploid tetrasporophyte is
Photosynthetic plasticity of the genus Asparagopsis (Bonnemaisoniales, Rhodophyta) in response to temperature: implications for invasiveness
TLDR
Low Ic values together with an apparent lack of sensitivity in the photosynthetic response to changing temperatures were revealed for the Mediterranean lineage 2, indicative of adaptive benefits that likely support its invasive success compared to the rest of the genus.
Phylogeography of the invasive seaweed Asparagopsis (Bonnemaisoniales, Rhodophyta) reveals cryptic diversity
TLDR
Phylogeographic results suggest separation of Atlantic and Indo‐Pacific lineages resulted from the emergence of the Isthmus of Panama, as well as from dispersal events postdating the closure event, such as the invasion of the Mediterranean Sea by mitochondrial lineages 2 and 3.
Morphological differentiation of cryptic lineages within the invasive genus Asparagopsis (Bonnemaisoniales, Rhodophyta)
TLDR
A morphological delineation of tetrasporophytes and gametophytes of Asparagopsis, including cryptic lineages collected from the Mediterranean Sea and the Hawaiian Islands, suggested high levels of morphological plasticity in the invasive taxon.
Microsatellite markers in an invasive strain of Asparagopsis taxiformis (Bonnemaisoniales, Rhodophyta): insights in ploidy level and sexual reproduction.
TLDR
High genetic similarity was found between the two Mediterranean populations screened and lower similarity between these two and the Californian one within the same mitochondrial lineage, suggesting high intra-population variation.
Molecular evidence for three separate cryptic introductions of the red seaweed Asparagopsis (Bonnemaisoniales, Rhodophyta) in South Africa
TLDR
This study provides molecular evidence of three independent, cryptic introductions of Asparagopsis along the South African coastline, one of them probably very recent, and this is discussed with respect to potential vectors responsible for transport.
Phylogeography of Asparagopsis taxiformis (Bonnemaisoniales, Rhodophyta) in the Hawaiian Islands: two mtDNA markers support three separate introductions
TLDR
Parsimony analyses of both regions for the Hawaiian collections revealed relationships that were consistent with those previously published for global A. taxiformis samples, and future studies may only need to sequence one of the two markers.
Commercial farming of Asparagopsis armata (Bonnemaisoniceae, Rhodophyta) in Ireland, maintenance of an introduced species?
TLDR
Three species, i.e., Ulva lactuca, Plocamium cartilagineum and Cryptopleura ramosa, were hosts for epiphytic A. armata in summer in over 60% of the collected samples.
The genus Ramicrusta (Peyssonneliales, Rhodophyta) in the Caribbean Sea, including Ramicrusta bonairensis sp. nov. and Ramicrusta monensis sp. nov.
TLDR
Two new species of Ramicrusta (Peyssonneliaceae, Rhodophyta) from Bonaire, The Netherlands Antilles and Puerto Rico and Ramic Rusta monensis from Puerto Rico are described on the basis of both morphological and genetic criteria, with a characteristic that differs from their Caribbean congener.
The genus Ethelia (Etheliaceae, Rhodophyta) in the Bahamas and Puerto Rico in the western Atlantic
TLDR
Two new Ethelia (Etheliaceae, Rhodophyta) species are described from Puerto Rico and a third from the Bahamas, one of which is from deep-water Bahamian habitats and possesses dorsal surface projections as well as extensive parenchymatous ventral outgrowths.

Diversity within red algal species : variation in world-wide samples of Spyridia filamentosa (Ceramiaceae) and Murrayella periclados (Rhodomelaceae) using DNA markers and breeding studies
TLDR
Red algal morphospecies are not equivalent units of diversity, with implications for the view of red algal biodiversity and evolution, as demonstrated by molecular and breeding studies on two pan-tropical marine red algae.
EVOLUTIONARY DIVERGENCE IN THE RED ALGAE CALOGLOSSA LEPRIEURII AND C. APOMEIOTICA
TLDR
The present data suggest that the two populations, one with single and the other with multiple cell rows, which are sympatrically distributed in southeastern Japan, have probably evolved by allopatric speciation.
A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF TEMPERATURE RESPONSES OF CARIBBEAN SEAWEEDS FROM DIFFERENT BIOGEOGRAPHIC GROUPS1
TLDR
Differences in low‐temperature tolerances in Caribbean populations of species from different distribution groups reflect adaptations to glacial cold‐stress in the tropical eastern Atlantic and subsequent trans‐Atlantic dispersal.
Thermal ecotypes of amphi-Atlantic algae. II. Cold-temperate species (Furcellaria lumbricalis andPolyides rotundus)
TLDR
Two species of cold-temperate algae from the North Atlantic Ocean, Polyides rotundus and Furcellaria lumbricalis, were tested for growth and survival over a temperature range of −5 to 30 °C, suggesting that these species are restricted in distribution by strict thermal and/or daylength requirements for reproduction.
Systematics and life histories of New Zealand Bonnemaisoniaceae (Bonnemaisoniales, Rhodophyta). I: The genus Asparagopsis
TLDR
The systematics and nomenclature of these two species of the genus Asparagopsis have been reassessed and details of their anatomy, habitat, seasonality, and biogeography are given.
THE GENUS PIKEA (DUMONTIACEAE, RHODOPHYTA) IN ENGLAND AND THE NORTH PACIFIC: COMPARATIVE MORPHOLOGICAL, LIFE HISTORY, AND MOLECULAR STUDIES 1
TLDR
Comparative morphological studies on field‐collected material and cultured isolates from England, California, and Japan and analysis of organellar DNA restriction fragment length polymorphisms showed that English Pikea is conspecific with P. californica from California.
Daylength, temperature and nutrient control of tetrasporogenesis in Asparagopsis armata (Rhodophyta)
TLDR
The results indicate that all three isolates differ in their response to environmental variables, and it is likely that the Mediterranean and Irish populations thus represent separate introductions into the Northern Hemisphere and that Australia was not the source of these plants.
Thermal ecotypes of amphi-Atlantic algae. I. Algae of Arctic to cold-temperate distribution (Chaetomorpha melagonium, Devaleraea ramentacea andPhycodrys rubens)
TLDR
Three species of Arctic to cold-temperate amphi-Atlantic algae, all occurring also in the North Pacific, were tested for growth and/or survival at temperatures of −20 to 30°C and patterns of thermal tolerance may provide insight into the evolutionary history of seaweed species.
Molecular analyses elucidate the taxonomy of fully corticated, nonspiny species of Ceramium (Ceramiaceae, Rhodophyta) in the British Isles
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to typify C. virgatum, in the context of better characterizing this and the other fully corticated species of Ceramium that occur in the British Isles, by analysis of plastid DNA restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) or rbcL sequences of each species from various sites, including their type localities.
