Title: Development of the protoplasts induced from wound-response in fifteen marine green algae Authors: Kim, Gwang Hoon, and Tatiana A. Klotchkova Journal: Japanese Journal of Phycology, 52 (2004): 111-116 PDF Link The first question answered here is whether the ability to regenerate from damage via released protoplasts is unique to Bryopsis, and the answer appears...

I learned that scientists switched from measuring in lux (the amount of illumination) and started measuring light power only since the 1980's! Today, light power is mostly expressed as PAR, but some authors still seem to refer to the precursor, µE's. (An obvious salute to Einstein.)
Chaeto and turf algae allow the highest density of epiphitic toxic dino's of any sudied algae. (See Table 1.) Even more interesting to me is Appendix A where a variety of macro aglae are listed, along with notes on palatability to some known grazers.
