The first question answered here is whether the ability to regenerate from damage via released protoplasts is unique to Bryopsis, and the answer appears to be a large “NO”.
The list of algae studied so far where this ability has been documented…
Even our beloved refugium denizen, Chaetomorpha, is among the algae with these abilities….
Unfortunately the study doesn’t include any variations on nutrients or other parameters aside from light that would make it even more interesting for us, but read the rest of the article anyway – it’s good!!
