In August 2003, the ECR phytoplankton community was composed of chrysophytes, chlorophytes
, and cyanobacteria.
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.
In the chlorophyte
Tetraselmis suecica the higher percentages of fatty acids were 16:0 (30.3%), 18:3n-3 (24.1%), and 20:5n-3 (13.8%) (Table 4).
Regarding to the activation of caspase begin as it is the pathway lead to programmed cell death (PCD) and  said that, for the first time caspase enzymatic activities were described in chlorophyte
The cultures were fed 1 x [10.sup.6] cells/mL of the chlorophyte
Nannochloris oculata grown in Bold's Basal Medium (Nichols, 1973).
Fitness differences among different symbiont genotypes may also bias symbiont populations within individual anemones toward more locally adapted types, as has been proposed regarding competing A-and B-clade Symbiodinium populations in the tropical anemone Condylactis gigantea (Venn et al., 2008), as well as in shifting populations of dinoflagellate and chlorophyte
symbionts in A.
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).
(green) macroalgae species are consumed by greenlip abalone, but are typically a secondary preference to red species (Shepherd 1973).
