Researcher Albert Mihranyan and Professor Maria Stromme at the Nanotechnology and Functional Materials Department of Engineering Sciences at the Angstrom Laboratory had been investigating pharmaceutical applications of the cellulose from Cladophora
algae for a number of years.
The species most often encountered was the alga Cladophora
Algae, especially entangled Cladophora
, decrease the catchability by gillnets as these become more visible for fish.
Physiological responses of the opportunistic macroalgae Cladophora
An argument often put forward in favor of the homologous theory of alternation of generations (and sporophyte origin) is the alleged "evidence" of algae with isomorphic (morphologically identical or very similar) gametophytes and sporophytes, such as Ulva, Cladophora
suhriana, Chaetomorpha (cf.
The most abundant taxa were Cladophora
glomerata, Compsopogon coeruleus and Phormidium retzii.
It is locally associated with the algae Cladophora
and Oedogonium (Reynolds 1959).
However, the types of algae that are in the massive blooms, Hypnea and Cladophora
, are still present in smaller concentrations along the west Maui shore.
The charophytes were partly covered by the filamentous epiphytes Cladophora
glomerata (Linnaeus) Kutzing and Pilayella littoralis (L.
Lamour ORDER: CLADOPHORALES Family: Cladophoraceae Cladophora
The green filamentous algae Cladophora
glomerata dominated in the area with a total cover of 60%.
