It developed first in the sea immediately below the oceanographic museum, and resisted winter temperatures of 11-13°C. of physicochemical parameters of seawater on their morphology. Areas supporting stands of Cymodocea nodosa and Posidonia oceanica are covered by fronds of C. taxifolia. These morphological traits, however, can exhibit a high degree of variation under different environmental conditions (Peterson 1972, Calvert 1976, Ohba and Enomoto 1987. The functional form theory predicts that surface area vs. Volume ratio (SA:V) and maximum productivity (P max) decrease as morphological complexity of an algal thallus increases.The genus Caulerpa demonstrates a tremendous range of morphological forms as well as interspecific plasticity which make it ideal to study intrageneric relationships between photosynthesis and morphology. Highest assimilator height of sea grapes was found in Coron and Culion in Palawan due to higher salinity and temperature while in Mactan, Cebu, it is primarily attributed to lower depth and higher salinity values. and 5 light intensities (0.5–8.0 klux). on a fossil periglacial slope deposits in the Hidaka Mountains, Hokkaido, Japan, and a total of 2350 stones were measured in order to evaluate a-axis length and clast shape separately influence its fabrics. Azimuths and, In the Kyoto meeting on climate change so called COP3, they agreed to the green house gas reduction target of Japan and other developed countries from 1990 by 2010. Although recent molecular studies have indicated the presence of a number of distinct species within the Caulerpa racemosa-peltata complex, due to the difficulties presented by high levels of phenotypic plasticity and the large number of synonyms, infra-specific taxa, and names of uncertain affinity, taxonomic proposals are yet to be made. -from Authors, Three new diatom taxa belonging to the genus Gomphonema were recorded during a survey Larvae mainly feed by sucking the cell content of green filamentous algae. More studies are necessary to understand better the ecology (invasiveness, the functional role of its microbiome) and the biology (reproduction, life cycle, and metabolism) of Caulerpa species, especially for economical species. De Senerpont Domis et al. laetevirens, occidentalis and turbinata were found to represent environmentally induced forms of a single species, for which the earlier‐described C. chemnitzia, previously regarded as a synonym of C. racemosa var. In addition we formally recognize the synonymy ofC. Ninety-five percent of the flora consists of widely distributed species (Western-Central Pacific, Indo-Pacific, pan-tropical / -subtropical, and cosmopolitan), and there is a very low level of endemism (1.3 %), which, it is suggested, may be due to the relatively young age of the Samoan Archipelago and to its position mid-way along the Indo-West Pacific biodiversity gradient. from Japan and five new isolates from China of a previously known syngen. Reproduction, development and morphological variation of the marine green algaCaulerpa racemosa var.peltata from the southern part of Japan were studied in culture in the laboratory. This nuclear behavior and the functions (growth and zoospore production abilities) correspond to those of sporophytes. The multinucleate siphonaceous green algal genus Caulerpa is widely distributed in the intertidal and subtidal zones of tropical and subtropical seas.

Morphogenetic responses of C. racemosa vat. Caulerpa (Chlorophyta)-Related Incidents. Species show a complex external morphology despite having no transverse cell walls. Anisogamous biflagellate male and female gametes were produced monoeciously and copulated with each other. High diversity was observed in the following taxa: Caulerpa cupressoides (Vahl) C.Agardh, with two forms: disticha and elegans; C. racemosa (Forsskål) J.Agardh, with five varieties: lamourouxii, peltata, uvifera, macrophysa, and turbinata; and C. sertularioides (S.G. Gmelin) Howe with two forms: longiseta and brevipes. resulting in the formation of creeping, filamentous, protonema-like plants. Analisis korespondensi kanonik (CCA) mengungkapkan bahwa suhu dan jenis substrat adalah pendorong utama biomassa Caulerpa. Biomasa yang memiliki stok tertinggi diperoleh oleh C. cupressoides dengan biomassa rata-rata 26,16 ± 2,44 (SE) g berat kering/m-2 , sedangkan C. microphysa memiliki biomassa stok yang berdiri paling sedikit dengan rata-rata 9,16 ± 0,26 g berat kering/m-2. via morphological variation) may allow for competitive dominance. Our results suggest that an event comparable to mitosis occurs before meiosis in the Codiolum phase of M. angicava. Variations in the structure, morphology and biomass of Caulerpa taxifolia in the Mediterranean Sea. -tory experiments using culture strains of collected specimens; 4) a case study in Green Island, Taiwan. Caulerpa elongata and C. oligophylla were confirmed occurring in the area for the first time. However, the nuclear behavior in the Codiolum phases is largely unknown, probably because no suitable methods are available. Refer to Fig. Settled zygotes, 3hr after copulation. and light intensity on the formation of assimilators were investigated with 25 combinations of 5 temperatures (20.0–30.0C) 13-16, 100 ~m. environmental factors. Therefore a brief excursion helps to highlight the morphological differences between Caulerpa taxifolia, C.mexicana, C.scalpelliformis, C.racemosa and the autochthonous species C.prolifera.

At larger spatial scales, frond length and width decreased with increased latitude, but latitude was less important in explaining the variation C. filiformis’ length than were depth or sedimentation. Sea grapes Caulerpa racemosa (Forsskål) J. Agardh, 1873 Description: This plant has erect branches arising from a horizontal stolon attached to the sediment at intervals by descending rhizomes.The erect branches arise every few centimeters, reaching as much as 30 cm in height. Four species are regarded as recently introduced to the Samoan flora: Spatoglossum macrodontum J. Agardh, Codium arenicola sp. Spherical body after 32 days. Caulerpa is known to occupy a wide range of environmental niches and to have great invasive potential. Crowded assimilators were observed in C. microphysa (5.89/2 cm stolon). racemosa from the been regarded as an Indian Ocean species immigrated via Mediterranean Sea are distinct taxonomic units.

The results showed a total of eight species of Caulerpa were identified in the shallow Caulerpa community in Solong-on, Siquijor. Specimens from mangrove channels on the Andaman coast that were previously identified as C. corynephora (with turbinate ramuli) and C. ashmeadii (with terete ramuli) were found to be conspecific with C. macrodisca (with large peltate ramuli, only found in the Gulf of Thailand). In the field, C. filiformis fronds were more elongated and less branched when a sediment veneer is present and when water depth increased (i.e. The life‐cycle system of Ulotrichales, a major order of Ulvophyceae, remains controversial because it is unclear whether the Codiolum phase, a characteristic unicellular diploid generation in ulotrichalean algae, is a zygote or a sporophyte. Caulerpa taxifolia has been accidentally released from an aquarium, Caulerpa racemosa is considered to have migrated from the Red Sea through the Suez Canal on ships' hulls or in ballast water (3Meinesz A., 2003). Join ResearchGate to find the people and research you need to help your work. Collected samples were later sorted to species. It exhibits considerable morphological plasticity, which might enhance its potential to colonize different habitats (Calvert 1976, Ohba & Enomoto 1987, ... Plants recognized as C. peltata or C. racemosa var. Morphometric, cluster and principal component analyses showed that morphological plasticity exists in sea grapes species (Caulerpa lentillifera and Caulerpa racemosa) found in different sites in the Philippines. It appears, moreover, thatC. Two species, Kappaphycus alverezii (Doty) Doty ex P. Silva and Eucheuma denticulatum (Burman) Collins & Hervey, were deliberately introduced for mariculture in the 1980s, but the farming failed and no relicts of these introductions have been detected. Botanica Marina, 38:499-508. peltata to various temperatures and light intensities. After this time, the species seemed to disappear, probably because of low winter temperatures. and Caulerpa spp as indicator By the COP3, to improve the global environmental problem seems to step-up from searching the direction to go ahead to practice level. 5. ABSTRAK Spesies Caulerpa yang tumbuh di perairan dangkal sampai dilaut dalam dianggap sebagai gangguan ekonomi dan penting. 65-day-old germling with two lower thin filaments and one upper thick filament. At the current rate of spreading further rapid extension of its range is to be feared. Biodiversitas 21: 1823-1832. Very few species, mainly C. lentillifera and C. racemosa known as green caviar, have been cultivated. Shannon-Wiener diversity index (H') ranged from 1.7-2 suggesting a relatively diverse Caulerpa community. Twenty-three (23) taxa were accounted for among the collec- tions deposited in the University of San Carlos Herbarium (CEBU). In this study, the proximate nutrient composition, phytochemical, anti-oxidant and anti-diabetic properties of sea grape C. racemosa collected from culture fishponds in Johor, Malaysia were analysed. This is the first time such a The typical racemosa, upper right, has short erect branches bearing crowded ramuli with short stalks and oval or spherical tips. The species include Clarkus papillatus (Bastian, 1865) Jairajpuri, 1970, Prionchulus muscorum (Dujardin, 1845) Wu & Hoeppli, 1929, Mylonchulus contractus Jairajpuri, 1970, M. hawaiiensis (Cassidy, 1931) Andrássy, The marginal variation observed in the concentration of P and Fe between surface and bottom waters as well as between southern and northern sectors is presumably due to the near fresh water (monsoon) character of the overlying waters during the study period (June 1989) . All figure content in this area was uploaded by Hideo Ohba, All content in this area was uploaded by Hideo Ohba on Jul 15, 2016, ... Caulerpa species are known to occupy a range of environmental niches that differ significantly with regard to temperature, light availability, water movement, depth, grazing pressure and benthic substrate, ... Characteristics such as phenotypic plasticity, asexual reproduction, surface metabolite production, and nutrient uptake via rhizoids contribute both directly and indirectly to the diverse range of suitable habitats for the genus (Crockett and Keough 2014). This book is first of its kind from India and describes a total of 198 species of marine macroalgae representing all three major groups of Chlorophyta, Phaeophyta and Rhodophyta collected from the Gujarat coast which is well known for its algal abundance and diversity. 7-12, 10 ~m ; Figs. The protected environment such as tide pools is found to be more conducive as larger specimens were collected from these areas; here reduced wave action allowed species to grow relatively larger. When tested on the 20 previously described syngens, it revealed one unexpected multi-clone effect on mating. [ 17 ] suggested the need for detailed study of the C. racemosa complex, which harbours a number of varieties and forms. This study aimed to determine the present standing stock biomass, percent cover and diversity of Caulerpa in Solong-on, as well as to determine the environmental parameters that may affect its abundance and diversity. Settled zygotes became spherical and increased in volume. We continue the use of ecads as a practical identification tool for morphological diversity below the species level present in the ETP. Komunitas Caulerpa di Solong-on, Siquijor adalah salah satu sumber untuk ekspor ke kota tetangga. The method should be valuable for identifying newly collected clones, examining potential, interactions among incompatible mating types, and for screening other highly specific inter-organism interactions such as host-parasite infections. inedit., Codium geppiorum O. Schmidt and Gracilaria ephemera Skelton, South & Millar. 2. Thus, apparently, the plasticity of this taxon is correlated with This article is protected by copyright. 2014. Caulerpa is a genus of seaweeds in the family Caulerpaceae (among the green algae).They are unusual because they consist of only one cell with many nuclei, making them among the biggest single cells in the world.A species in the Mediterranean can have a stolon more than 3 metres (9.8 ft) long, with up to 200 fronds.This species can be invasive from time to time. The genus showed marked differences in morphological characters between species collected from different sites. these new species. Reproduction, development and morphological variation of the marine green algaCaulerpa racemosa var.peltata from the southern part of Japan were studied in culture in the laboratory. Suitable conservation measures identification along with awreness campaign and developing protected areas. Caulerpa race-mosa was chosen in order to compare the epiphytic diatom communities on two invasive Caulerpa species with different toxin contents. 6. Caulerpa is consumed mostly in Asia and Oceania, but its popularity tends to be on the increase in western countries with new nutritional practices (vegetarians, vegans, health foods). 3. This species is unique in that it has perfectly round individual clusters, resembling grapes on a vine. (2013) ... into herbarium for further morphology comparison. Taxonomic, nomenclatural and distributional appraisals of the species are presented, together with an iconography of digital images covering most species. Caulerpa farming can bring significant economic and environmental (e.g., bioreme-diation, blue carbon pump) benefits if these farms are established in a sustainable approach. 3.2. -from English summary. 8. Nomenclatural synonyms. Primary germ tube formation, after 35 days. Abstract The phenotypic plasticity and performance of two growth-forms of Caulerpa racemosa (Forssk l) J. Agardh, one found in estuarine conditions, the other growing in a coastal reef environment was studied in laboratory culture. 5. have also been included. Identification: The distinctive, frond-like morphology of Caulerpa taxifolia (under high sunlight conditions) can be distinguished from the other Caulerpa species to which it is most similar by the nature of its frond pinnules and its stolon. Morphological variations among 8 species of Caulerpa collected from Gujarat and Maharashtra coast were studied. A list of the species, to- gether with the collection locality, brief description and re- marks, is provided. Sea grapes, locally known in the Philippines as "lato" or "ar-arusip", are economically important macroalgae belonging to the edible species of the genus Caulerpa. Samples were cleaned of all debris, epiphytes, and sediments (Thibaut et al 2004; CIFRI-CDA-ICZM Consultancy Project 2011-2016, The project envisages to formulate guidelines for estuarine resource management for augmenting fisheries on an ecosystem based approach with a clear focus on (i) generating information on seasonal, Assessment of diversity and abundance of gastropods and bivalves in Mahanadi, 1. Detailed light (LM) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) observations are used to characterize the morphology and ultrastructure of the three new Gomphonema taxa. The introduced green alga Caulerpa taxifolia continues to spread in the Mediterranean. Concise review of the genus Caulerpa J.V. These plants formed primary shoots which differentiated (Glasby and Gibson, 2007; ... Caulerpa is distributed throughout the tropical and warm temperate waters worldwide (Smith & Walters 1999, Senerpont Domis et al. Male gamete (single arrowhead), female gametes (double arrowheads) and planozygotes (arrows). The genus Caulerpa is highly diverse, especially in the Caribbean Sea, the Indo-Malay archipelago and the temperate waters of southern Australia. of streams of the Eastern Himalayas from the state of Arunachal Pradesh, India. This is a working documet to update our 2005 version already published. 5-6, 17, 1 mm ; Figs. The first report of a toxic constituent from a seaweed was that of caulerpicin from Caulerpa racemosa by Doty and Aguilar-Santos (1966). Sedimentation is one of the main environmental stressors shaping coastal marine communities and tolerance of high sedimentation rates (e.g. 13.
