The effects of coalescence on survival and development of Mazzaella laminarioides (Rhodophyta, Gigartinales)


The potential benefits associated with coalescence in red algae have been best documented with early stages of development. In this study, we report on the effects of the original number of spores on branching and fertility during later stages of development. Measurements for 20 months of survival rates, field growth, and fertility of a set of 96 sporelings… (More)
