- Additional Marine Benthic Algae from Howland and Baker Islands, Central Pacific. Tsuda, Roy T.; Vroom, Peter S.; Abbott, Isabella A.; Fisher, Jack R.; Foster, Kevin B. // Pacific Science;Apr2008, Vol. 62 Issue 2, p271
Marine benthic algae from Howland Island and Baker Island were identified from collections made during earlier expeditions in 1924, 1935, and 1964, and during five separate expeditions between 1998 and 2004. Eightynine (six blue-green algae, 53 red algae, five brown algae, and 25 green algae)...
- Growth and maturation of two populations of Sargassum horneri (Fucales, Phaeophyta) in Hiroshima Bay, the Seto Inland Sea. Yoshida,, Goro; Yoshikawa, Koji; Terawaki, Toshinobu // Fisheries Science;Dec2001, Vol. 67 Issue 6, p1023
ABSTRACT: Seasonal growth and maturation patterns of two Sargassum horneri populations were surveyed in Hiroshima Bay on the western Seto Inland Sea. Both S. horneri populations began to exhibit rapid growth in autumn, exceeding a daily increase in plant length of 10 mm/day. However, there are...
- The role of inorganic and organic nutrients on the development of phytoplankton along a transect from the Daugava River mouth to the Open Baltic, in spring and summer 1999. P�der, T�nis; Maestrini, Serge Y.; Balode, Maija; Lips, Urmas; B�chemin, Christian; Andrushaitis, Andris; Purina, Ingrida // ICES Journal of Marine Science / Journal du Conseil;Aug2003, Vol. 60 Issue 4, p827
The importance of dissolved silicate (DSi), dissolved inorganic nitrogen (DIN), dissolved organic nitrogen (DON), phosphate and dissolved organic phosphorus (DOP) on algal growth is analysed for the Gulf of Riga and the adjacent open Baltic Sea. The results of three cruises (May, June, and July,...
- Rock snot inches closer to area. Lynch, Mike // Adirondack Daily Enterprise;5/22/2010, Vol. 117 Issue 121, pB3
The article reports on the discovery of an invasive alga that could have serious implications for the northern Adirondack, New York, trout fishing industry, by the Department of Environmental Conservation.
- Nanobiotechnology: More light on algae. // Nature;8/12/2010, Vol. 466 Issue 7308, p799
The article reports on research that shows the ability of metallic nanoparticles to boost algal growth using intensive light, conducted by Radhakrishna Sureshkumar from Syracuse University in New York.
- Algae: The scum solution. Savage, Neil // Nature;6/23/2011 Supplement, Vol. 474 Issue 7352, pS15
The article discusses the algae scum covering ponds in the U.S., which is an efficient source of fuel from sunlight but needs a lot of creativity for industrial growing. It says that attaining efficient algal oil production is difficult since it is a money-loosing proposition and that the space...
- Algae. Manozzi, Nancy // African Violet Magazine;Sep/Oct2004, Vol. 57 Issue 5, p15
Presents ways to prevent the growth of algae. Information on algae; Importance of increasing air circulation between plants; Benefits of using Physan 20 algaecide.
- Nitrogen-stimulated growth of algae in surface-water samples collected from freshwater kettle ponds of Cape Cod National Seashore (Massachusetts, USA). Smith, S. M.; Lee, K. D. // Journal of Freshwater Ecology;Mar2012, Vol. 27 Issue 1, p151
Nutrient enrichment bioassays, coinciding with analyses of surface water nutrients, nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P), were conducted using water samples collected from 10 freshwater lakes (kettle ponds) of Cape Cod National Seashore (CCNS) (Massachusetts, USA). Algal biomass developing in each...
- Lesiones naturales y regeneración de tejido en ramets del coral Montastraea annularis (Scleractinia: Faviidae) en un arrecife degradado del Caribe Colombiano. Alvarado, Elvira; Acosta, Alberto // Revista de Biología Tropical;dec2009, Vol. 57 Issue 4, p939
Currently, Montastraea annularis populations are suffering from high partial mortality rates; yet few studies have determined type, frequency and intensity of natural lesions in situ. During a year we followed natural lesions that appeared on healthy ramets of a population on a degraded reef...
