Chapter
Increased efforts are needed to meet future needs to feed the globe’s growing human population while securing sustainable uses of all resources from land and sea areas. Macroalgae are expected to be important for future solutions, given their broad growth regions along long coastlines coupled to important ecological roles and impressive biomass pro...

In this chapter, we compare the development of two brown algae, the tiny filamentous brown alga Ectocarpus sp. and the large parenchymatous brown alga Saccharina latissima. Owing to their major morphological and life cycle differences, broadly described in this chapter, these algae are now two useful models for comparative studies on embryogenesis,...

The brown alga Ectocarpus is a filamentous seaweed that grows by tip growth and branching. In the morphometric mutant etoile, tip growth is slower than in the WT and eventually stops. In this paper, we show that the causal etoile mutation is a null mutation in a bi-domain BAR-RhoGAP gene. By quantitative RT-PCR, we showed that ETOILE is ubiquitousl...

Embryogenesis and early development in kelps are poorly studied and understood. Cultivation protocols focus mostly either on the preparation of large volumes of vegetative gametophytes or on the production of conspicuous juvenile sporophytes as starting materials for aquaculture to grow large adult organisms for biomass. Hence, our protocol describ...

Cell structure and microtubule organisation during gametogenesis of the green alga Ulva mutabilis was studied using light microscopy, transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and tubulin immunofluorescence. Microtubules in vegetative cells are organised in parallel bundles traversing the cortical cytoplasm. During gametogenesis, induced blade cells a...
