  • Kelp transcriptomes provide robust support for interfamilial relationships and revision of the little known Arthrothamnaceae (Laminariales)

    Kelp transcriptomes provide robust support for interfamilial relationships and revision of the little known Arthrothamnaceae (Laminariales)

    Maximum likelihood (ML) phylogeny generated from the 152-gene alignment with Bayesian posterior probabilities and ML bootstrap support values appended, respectively. * Indicates full support in both Bayesian and ML bootstrap analyses. Dotted line indicates where Aureophycus joins this tree based on ML analyses (bootstrap support value indicated in italics) of a separate eight-gene alignment with the bootstrap support indicated (see Appendix S1, Fig. S1, and Table S2). The outgroup Chorda filum was cropped from the figure to facilitate presentation. Letters following species names correspond to insert images to the right of the tree.

    Ectocarpus sp. strain NZKU 1–3 (CCAP 1310/56) in culture (photo by ODC), and cox1 phylogenetic tree of the Ectocarpus subgroup siliculosi showing the 15 DNA-delimited species by Montecinos et al. (). [Color figure can be viewed at wileyonlinelibrary.com].

  • Yihiella yeosuensis gen. et sp. nov. (suessiaceae, dinophyceae), a novel dinoflagellate isolated from the coastal waters of Korea

    Yihiella yeosuensis gen. et sp. nov. (suessiaceae, dinophyceae), a novel dinoflagellate isolated from the coastal waters of Korea

    Cells of Yihiella yeosuensis gen. et sp. nov. Light microscopy (a, b, d, f) and epifluorescence microscopy (c and e). Cells in a–e were starved >5 d, but cells in (f) were fed Teleaulax sp. as prey. (a) Cells showing the pyrenoid (black arrows). (b and c) Ventral view of cells showing a bright eyespot (Es), the large chloroplast (Ch), and the nucleus (Nu). The cells in b and c are the same cell. (d and e) Dorsal view of cells showing the large chloroplast (Ch) and nucleus (Nu). The cells in d and e are the same cell. (f) Dividing cells containing a food vacuole (Fv), scale bars = 5 μm.

  • Genetic and morphological variation in an ecosystem engineer, Lithophyllum byssoides (Corallinales, Rhodophyta)

    Genetic and morphological variation in an ecosystem engineer, Lithophyllum byssoides (Corallinales, Rhodophyta)

    Habit of Lithophyllum byssoides. (A) Detail of juvenile specimens. (B) Build-up formed by coalescence of numerous specimens. (C) Close-up of hemispherical specimen. (D) Detail of cushion-like specimens. (E) Detail of specimens submerged at high tide. [Color figure can be viewed at wileyonlinelibrary.com].

  • Giant kelp vegetative propagation: Adventitious holdfast elements rejuvenate senescent individuals of the Macrocystis pyrifera “integrifolia” ecomorph

    Giant kelp vegetative propagation: Adventitious holdfast elements rejuvenate senescent individuals of the Macrocystis pyrifera “integrifolia” ecomorph

    Development of secondary holdfasts by the integrifolia morph of Macrocystis pyrifera. (a) Swellings sometimes emerge from stipes in senescent plants (arrow). (b) In some cases, an improvised rudimentary holdfast takes the attachment function (arrow), when the primary holdfast is moribund and/or not appropriately fastened (arrowhead). (c) Transplants (clones) of M. pyrifera used for cultivation, bearing one protuberance (arrowhead) and at least one frond. (d) Cultivation system in boulders after Westermeier et al. (), trying to immobilize the hapteron-like structure using elastic bands (arrow). (e) Development of early secondary holdfasts from a stipe, after the first month in culture. (f) 4-month specimen completely regenerated and attached to a boulder.
