Surfaces immersed in the marine environment are under intense fouling pressure by a number of invertebrates and algae. The regulation of this fouling can often be attributed to the bacterial biofilm that quickly develops on the surface of any available substratum in the ocean. The bacterial community composition on the surface of the green alga Dictyosphaeria ocellata was investigated and compared to those found on two other green algae, Batophora oerstedii and Cladophoropsis macromeres, and on… 
Seasonal variation in the antifouling defence of the temperate brown alga Fucus vesiculosus
TLDR
This study is the first to report temporal variation of antifouling defence originating from ecologically relevant surface-associated compounds in the temperate brown macroalga Fucus vesiculosus.
Potential interactions bacteria-brown algae
TLDR
The recent advances in the understanding of bacteria-brown algae interactions are reported, highlighting the diversity and functional role of epiphytic bacteria, including the maintenance of the health of the algae and the biological activities described from this association.
Surface metabolites of the brown alga Taonia atomaria have the ability to regulate epibiosis
TLDR
An experimental protocol was optimized to specifically extract algal surface-associated metabolites by a technique involving dipping in organic solvents whilst the integrity of algal cell membranes was assessed by fluorescent microscopy, which led to the selection of methanol as the extraction solvent.
Community composition of the Planctomycetes associated with different macroalgae.
TLDR
Sequencing of DGGE bands indicated that Planctomycetes communities were highly diverse, and some Operational Taxonomic Units seemed to be specifically associated with each macroalgae.
Crustose coralline algal species host distinct bacterial assemblages on their surfaces
TLDR
Crustose coralline algae species that facilitate larval settlement in multiple corals had higher abundances of OTUs related to bacteria that inhibit the growth and/or biofilm formation of coral pathogens and cyanobacteria, and Coral larvae may be able to use the observed differences in bacterial community composition on CCA species to assess the suitability of these substrata for settlement and selectively settle on C CA species that contain beneficial bacteria.
Exploring bacteria-induced growth and morphogenesis in the green macroalga order Ulvales (Chlorophyta)
TLDR
This review combines literature detailing evidences of bacteria-induced morphogenesis in Ulvales with a set of standardized experimental approaches proposed for the preparation of axenic algal tissues, bacteria isolation, co-cultivation experiments, and the analysis of the chemosphere.
Algae as an important environment for bacteria – phylogenetic relationships among new bacterial species isolated from algae
TLDR
A phylogenetic study based on 16S rRNA gene sequences available in GenBank, including 101 validly described bacterial species that were isolated from eukaryotic macro- and micro-algae from marine and freshwater environments, finds that algal-bacterial association are still under-studied in various algal groups and expects a great number of new bacterial taxa to be discovered in the future.
A protective coat of microorganisms on macroalgae: inhibitory effects of bacterial biofilms and epibiotic microbial assemblages on barnacle attachment.
TLDR
It is concluded that biofilms can have a repellent effect benefiting the host by preventing heavy fouling on its surface, however, severe settlement pressure, as well as stressful temperature, may reduce the protective effects of the alga's biofilm.
Dual effect of macroalgal extracts on growth of bacteria in Western Baltic Sea
TLDR
It is demonstrated that macroalgal extracts can display different effects, i.e., inhibition or stimulation of bacterial growth depending on the origin of the test strains, which are derived from a standard panel or from the marine environment, respectively.

The green macroalga Dictyosphaeria ocellata influences the structure of the bacterioplankton community through differential effects on individual bacterial phylotypes.
TLDR
The effects of the green alga Dictyosphaeria ocellata on the bacterioplankton community in field enclosure experiments and on individual, naturally co-occurring bacterial strains in laboratory co-culture experiments are examined.
Allelochemical defense against epibiosis in the macroalga Caulerpa racemosa var. turbinata
TLDR
The data suggest that waterborne compounds other than caulerpenyne are involved in the chemical defense of the alga C. racemosa, and suggest that the algal regulate the occurrence of certain bacterial ribotypes.
Phylogenetic relationship and antifouling activity of bacterial epiphytes from the marine alga Ulva lactuca.
TLDR
Five epiphytes of the common green alga, Ulva lactuca, assessed were capable of preventing the settlement of invertebrate larvae and germination of algal spores, and showed a close affiliation with the genus Pseudoalteromonas and, in particular, with the species P. tunicata.
Changes in Epiphytic Bacterial Communities of Intertidal Seaweeds Modulated by Host, Temporality, and Copper Enrichment
TLDR
It is shown that the structure of bacterial communities epiphytic on macroalgae is hierarchically determined by algal species > temporal changes > copper levels, and that the composition and structure of the bacterial communities also varied through time.
Variability and abundance of the epiphytic bacterial community associated with a green marine Ulvacean alga
TLDR
Assessment of the diversity and seasonal dynamics of the bacterial community of the model alga Ulva australis reveals that members of the Alphaproteobacteria and the Bacteroidetes are likely to have an important role in the function of this marine epiphytic microbial community.
The red alga Bonnemaisonia asparagoides regulates epiphytic bacterial abundance and community composition by chemical defence.
TLDR
Findings demonstrate that B. asparagoides produces surface-bound antibacterial compounds with a significant impact on the abundance and composition of the associated bacterial community.
Planktonic bacteria and fungi are selectively eliminated by exposure to marine macroalgae in close proximity.
TLDR
This study demonstrates macroalgal defenses against epiphytic microorganisms based on natural delivery mechanisms of allelochemicals utilizing a culture-independent approach, thus minimizing the ecological bias inherent to culture-dependent studies based on few microbial isolates.
Isolated thallus-associated compounds from the macroalga Fucus vesiculosus mediate bacterial surface colonization in the field similar to that on the natural alga
TLDR
Algal surface chemistry affects macrofouling not only directly but also indirectly, via its control of biofilm formation and composition, and these results suggest that algal surface Chemistry affects macroFoulingNotably, PERMANOVA revealed that bacterial community profiles on controls and on gels featuring polar or non-polar extract were significantly different from the profile on F. vesiculosus.
Specific epibacterial communities on macroalgae: phylogeny matters more than habitat
TLDR
Results give the first evidence for lineage-specific bacterial associations to algal thalli and suggest that these algal species may control their epibiotic bacterial communities.
Chemical mediation of bacterial surface colonisation by secondary metabolites from the red alga Delisea pulchra
TLDR
The ability to swarm was widespread among these surface associated marine bacteria, suggesting that swarming may be ecologically important in these systems, and differential inhibition of different bacterial isolates or phenotypes by furanones should have strong effects on the species composition of the bacterial community on the alga's surface.
