Tetraselmis suecica had a high level of palmitic acid (16:0), a-linolenic acid (ALA) (18:3n-3), and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) (20:5n-3), which are essential for nutrition of animals and humans (Brown, 2002; Patil et al.
Of the many phytoplankton taxa identified, this paper presents the results only for chlorophytes
in general, Anabaena sp.
The Moe and Svedasai formations in the lower half of the Pirgu Stage both contain skeletal debris of the chlorophyte
algae Palaeoporella, which in the Jaksiai core (Fig.
These infestations included the Cyanophyte genera Anabaena and Lyngbya causing grades 2, 3 and 4 infestations in post-larvae (25%), juveniles (30%) and adults (60%), and the Chlorophyte
genera Cosmarium and Ulothrix causing grades 2 and 3 infestations in post-larvae (30%), juveniles (50%) and adults (25%), TABLE I.
The colonial chlorophyte
Eudorina and the filamentous green algae Oedogonium were dominant in mixed-species treatments, whereas Cladophora was dominant in grazer-free controls.
The temperate intertidal anemone Anthopleura elegantis-sima Brandt, 1835 hosts both dinoflagellates (zooxanthellae of the genus Symbiodinium) and chlorophytes
(zoochlorellae; Elliptochloris marina [Letsch et al.
Impact of nutrients and physical factors on a shift from Cyanobacterial to Chlorophyte
dominance in shallow danish lakes.
Further evidence that hydrologic changes have altered phytoplankton community structure is provided by the observed historical trends in dinoflagellate and chlorophyte
Between January 1999 and April 2000 two chlorophyte
algae, Codium taylorii Silva and Caulerpa prolifera F.
The model suggests that chlorophyte
increases in all treatments were due to the decline of diatoms.
Schmidt, and vegetative populations of the chlorophyte
Molecular parasites should thus be more successful in genomes that reproduce sexually than in those that replicate clonally (Hickey 1982), Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is a unicellular, heterothallic chlorophyte
alga well suited to testing this prediction because it can be maintained with or without sex, and because its low doubling time permits the passage of hundreds of asexual generations or dozens of sexual cycles per year (Harris 1989).
