Aim: Historical processes that shaped current diversity patterns of seaweeds remain poorly understood. Using Dictyotales, a globally distributed order of brown seaweeds as a model, we test if historical biogeographical and diversification patterns are comparable across clades. Dictyotales contain some 22 genera, three of which, Dictyota, Lobophora...
Article
Here we report for the first time the presence of Dictyota cyanoloma in southern California. Dictyota cyanoloma is conspicuous in harbors and bays by its distinctive bright blue‐iridescent margins. This species was originally described from Europe but subsequent studies have revealed that it represented an introduction from Australia. The current d...
Preprint
Both mating system variation and the propensity of many seaweeds to reproduce both sexually and asexually, leave a strong imprint in the genetic structure of species. In this respect, we study the population genetic structure of Dictyota dichotoma , a common haplodiplont brown subtidal seaweed. This benthic species is widespread in the NE-Atlantic,...

ABSTRACTDictyota cyanoloma has recently been described from the Mediterranean Sea and Macaronesia but doubt had arisen as to whether this species was truly native in Europe. The species is mainly found on non-natural substrata (harbour walls, marinas, boat hulls, etc.), strongly suggesting that it is an introduction. Molecular sequence information...

Dictyota cyanoloma, a distinctive brown algal species characterized by a blue-iridescent margin, was recently reported as an introduced species in the Mediterranean Sea (Steen et al., 2016) but little is known about its distribution dynamics, morphological plasticity and genetic structure. In the present integrative study, we evaluate its past and...
Article
During the Atimo Vatae research cruise of 2010, the seaweed flora of the southern coast of Madagascar was extensively sampled. Here we report on the species diversity and biogeographic affinities of the brown algal order Dictyotales, which was assessed using DNA-barcoding makers. Molecular identification resulted in 23 MOTU's belonging to 9 genera....
Article
Given the problems of species delimitation in algae using morphology or sexual compatibility, molecular data are becoming the standard for delimiting species and testing their traditional boundaries. The idea that species are separately evolving metapopulation lineages, along with theoretical progress in phylogenetic and population genetic analyses...

Despite a rich seaweed flora, information about Vietnamese seaweeds is scattered throughout a large number of often regional publications and, hence, difficult to access. This paper presents an up-to-date checklist of the marine macroalgae of Vietnam, compiled by means of an exhaustive bibliographical search and revision of taxon names. A total of...

Taxonomy of the brown algal genus Dictyota has a long and troubled history. Our inability to distinguish morphological plasticity from fixed diagnostic traits that separate the various species has severely confounded species delineation. From continental Europe, more than 60 species and intraspecific taxa have been described over the last two centu...

The introduction of a common Western Pacific representative of the Dictyotales, Rugulopteryx okamurae (Dawson) I.K. Hwang et al., in european waters was demonstrated for the first time. The species was collected in the coastal lagoon of Thau (France, Mediterranean) in 2002. The specimens from Europe are described and compared with R. okamurae. Thei...

Project
This project aims to 1) get a better understanding of the taxonomic composition and distribution of non-native crayfish in Belgium; 2) set up a program to monitor these species and 3) study the impacts and possible management strategies.
