Inspecting herbaria collections of Laurencia rigida highlighted frequent misidentifications between L. rigida and L.heteroclada f. decussata, two poorly studied taxa from Australia. Recent collections of DNA material, including from topotypematerial, allowed for re-examination of these two taxa using molecular techniques. Detailed morphological and...
Article
It was noted that Mediterranean specimens collected at different stations from around Sicily, Italy and referred to as Laurencia dendroidea (as Laurencia majuscula) were similar to the recently described species Laurenciella marilzae. Presented in this study are the results of an integrative approach using both morphology and molecular data (COI-5P...
Article
Laurencia majuscula has recently been determined to be conspecific with Laurencia dendroidea. To determine the correct taxonomic placement of its only non-typical variety, L. majuscula var. elegans, mitochondrial COI-5P and chloroplast rbcL gene sequences were analyzed and its phylogenetic position was inferred. Laurencia majuscula var. elegans con...

In spring 2014, thousands of green algal balls were washed up at Dee Why Beach, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Reports of algal balls are uncommon in marine systems, and mass strandings on beaches are even more rare, sparking both public and scientific interest. We identified the algal masses as Chaetomorpha linum by using light microscopy and...
Article
Within the Laurencia complex (Rhodophyta, Rhodomelaceae), six genera have been recognized based on both molecular analyses and morphology: Laurencia, Osmundea, Chondrophycus, Palisada, Yuzurua and Laurenciella. Recently new material from Australia has been collected and included in the current molecular phylogeny, resulting in a new clade. This stu...
Article
Morphological and molecular studies have been undertaken on two species of the red algal genus Laurencia J.V.Lamouroux: Laurencia majuscula (Harvey) A.H.S. Lucas and Laurencia dendroidea J.Agardh, both from their type localities. The phylogenetic position of these species was inferred by analysis of the chloroplast encoded rbcL gene sequences from...

Morphological and molecular studies have been performed on Laurencia dendroidea derived from Brazil and the Canary Islands. This species possesses all of the characters that are typical of the genus Laurencia, including the production of the first pericentral cell underneath the basal cell of the trichoblast; the production of tetrasporangia from p...
Article
Catch-per-unit-of-effort (CPUE) data were collected from anglers participating in gamefish tournaments off the coast of New South Wales, Australia, over nine consecutive years (1994–2003). Mean catch rates for 381 tournament days were aggregated by “lunar phase day” in order to analyse relationships between CPUE and lunar phase for eight primary ga...
