In: Cladophora Research and Management in the Great Lakes, pp. Arrows represent mathematical equations linking model parameters (Temp., temperature; SRP, soluble reactive phosphate; PAR, photosynthetically active radiation; kPAR, light extinction coefficient). The ulvophycean order Ulotrichales is exceptional in that it encompasses every morphological type except the vegetative flagellates and the true siphons (O'Kelly and Floyd 1984a; Floyd and O'Kelly 1990; Friedl and O'Kelly 2002; O'Kelly et al. (j) Nassulopsis (Ciliate; 150 µm). Analysis of the structural genomic features and phylogenetic analysis of chloroplast sequence data has helped untangle the evolutionary relationships between Chlorophyceae (Brouard, Otis, Lemieux, & Turmel, 2010). In Orchrophyta, the main reserve polysaccharide is laminaran (Section 2.5.2), which is found in a vacuole inside the chloroplast (Barsanti and Gualtieri, 2014). Ulva, Cladophora, Codium), but many unicellular or microscopic filamentous species are also known.Many species live in marine, but there are many freshwater and terrestrial species. Ulva lactuca, a alface-do-mar. Large brown macroalgae or seaweeds can be found in about half of the 21 orders, but they are most common in the Desmarestiales, Dictyotales, Ectocarpales, Fucales, and Laminariales. The sea lettuce, Ulva, belongs here. (a) Zygnema (Chloroplastid; individual cells 50 µm long). The Ulvophytes are diverse in their morphology and their habitat. The Ulvophyceae are relatively poorly represented in fresh water. Figure 11. H. pluvialis is a freshwater unicell with biflagellate and palmelloid forms. in Bootsma et al. Unlike plant metabolism, storage carbohydrates in algae serve as a photosynthetic reserve and some of them as osmoregulators. The UTS (Ulvophyceae, Trebouxiophyceae (Chlorella, Perietochloris, Botryococcus)), chlorophyceae (Dunaliella, Haemotococcus) classes are characterized by closed mitosis, a cruciate flagellar microtubular root system, absence of a multilayered structure, and phycoplast formation-assisted cytokinesis (Leliaert et al., 2012). The best-known species of the trebouxiophycean genera Prasiola and Rosenvingiella are found in the highest intertidal zones of rocky shores, but these coastal forms are marginally marine and are atypical of the group. The members of the phylum Chlorophyta can be found in freshwater, marine, or even terrestrial environments and include unicellular and multicellular members possessing chlorophylls a and b in a single chloroplast surrounded by two envelope membranes. Some of them will be briefly introduced in Section 2.5.3. Our time-calibrated tree points to an origin and early diversification of green seaweeds Large size and complexity has evolved independently within green algae on multiple occasions. The two main clades of Ulvophyceae: the Oltmannsiellopsidales + Ulvales–Ulotrichales clade, and a clade consisting of the Trentepohliales, Cladophorales, Bryopsidales, and Dasycladales (TCBD clade) have been recovered in phylogenetic analyses inferred from nuclear and chloroplast genes (Cocquyt et al., 2010; Skaloud et al., 2013) (Fig. Copyright © 2020 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. Chloroplastida (also known as Viridiplantae or Chlorobionta) includes the various green algae, that is, all the primary algae with chlorophyll b in addition to chlorophyll a, and the land plants. invasions. The relationships within the core Chlorophyta have recently been evaluated based on multigene datasets [17-19], which is relevant in the light of comparative genomics.Although monophyly of the Ulvophyceae was supported in a 10-gene phylogeny (eight nuclear and two chloroplast encoded genes) [], chloroplast (cp) multigene phylogenetic analyses generally failed to recover the Ulvophyceae as a clade. Other well-known members include Caulerpa, Codium, Acetabularia, Cladophora, Trentepohlia and Monostroma. Remarkably, the plastids of glaucophytes also retain a vestige of the bacterial peptidoglycan cell wall between inner and outer plastid membranes (Löffelhardt and Bohnert, 1994; Jackson et al., 2015). The conundrum lies within the great diversity of their morphological, ultrastructural and molecular characteristics (Lewis & McCourt, 2004; Pröschold, 2001). The chlorophyte Cladophora (Chlorophyta, Ulvophyceae; more than 400 species) is widely regarded as the most important harmful filamentous alga of inland waters, and the most abundant alga in alkaline streams throughout the world (Table 2, Figure 9). Synonyms: class Ulvophyceae; Ulvophyceae. Some species, such as Monostroma, Enteromorpha (synonymous to Ulva), Caulerpa, are sometimes used as food.. Green algae taxonomy has been widely disputed since they were described by Linneo in 1753 (Moestrup, 2006). Laurie-Eve Rioux, Sylvie L. Turgeon, in Seaweed Sustainability, 2015. Phylogenetic studies have shown the group Prasinophyceae to be paraphyletic, while the group Trebouxiophyceae is sister to the groups Ulvophyceae and Chlorophyceae (Pombert, Otis, Lemieux, & Turmel, M, 2004; Pröschold & Leliaert, 2007). Most are seaweeds such as those listed above. The brown algae are in the kingdom Chromista, phylum Ochrophyta, and class Phaeophyceae and have about 2040 species of which all but 10 genera occur in marine habitats. (b) Haematococcus (Chloroplastida; 30 µm). There is no consensus topology in these single-gene phylogenies. Figure 10. Proper noun A taxonomic class within the phylum Chlorophyta — many green algae including many seaweeds. Later phylogenetic studies using 18S rDNA sequences from ~ 100 cercozoans suggest that chlorarachniophytes occupy a position at the base of the Filosa clade (Bass et al., 2009; Howe et al., 2011; Shiratori & Ishida, 2016). As for the host origin of chlorarachniophytes, a phagotrophic ancestry of the Filosa belonging to the Cercozoa has been postulated. The model also considered losses from respiration, and from sloughing related to wind direction/speed and current velocity. At cellular P concentrations less than that value, the model predicts that specific growth becomes increasingly sensitive to very small shifts in internal P stores. Thus, it has been argued that the forces driving the nucleotide composition towards G and C in both organelles of C. subellipsoidea are neutral and linked to a nuclear mutation affecting GC-biased gene conversion or cell-wide features such as life history-related traits, environment, and/or metabolic features (Smith et al., 2011). Unfavorable conditions induce encystment, when the cell produces astaxanthin and surrounds itself with a thick cellulose wall impregnated with a sporopollenin-like substance (Boussiba, 2000). Background boxes delineate major groupings, colored as in Figure 3. Comparisons of selected morphological features between Umbraulva spp. (h) Bicosoeca (Bicosoecid; 10 µm excluding theca). Molecular phylogenetic studies have been performed to shed light on the endosymbiont origin of chlorarachniophyte plastids.

The CGM was successfully validated on field populations of Cladophora in eastern Lake Erie during 2002. The term Chlorophyta came from Ancient Greek khlōrós, meaning “green” and‎ –phyta, meaning “plant”. Based on the phylogenetic tree of plastid 16S ribosomal RNA (rDNA) genes, chlorarachniophyte plastids are inferred to be closely related to extant species of Chlorella/Nanochlorum in the Trebouxiophyceae (Van de Peer, Rensing, Maier, & De Wachter, 1996). Lewis and McCourt (2004) summarize subgroupings in each of the three classes that they recognize. Morphological types range from unicells and simple multicellular filaments to sheet-like and complex corticated thalli. (2005) The Contribution of Dreissena to the Resurgence of Cladophora in eastern Lake Erie. C. Dawes, in Seaweed in Health and Disease Prevention, 2016. Their history likely dates back more than 1 billion years, based on scant early fossils (Butterfield et al., 1990). From Higgins, S.N. Cryptic plastids are present in some nonphotosynthesizing unicellular eukaryotes that are phylogenetically related to phototrophic organisms. For example, the major group of green seaweeds (, Natural Products Structural Diversity-I Secondary Metabolites: Organization and Biosynthesis. Cladophora has a relatively high light optimum for photosynthesis, can rapidly acclimate to low or high light. (i) Undescribed euplotid (Ciliate; 45 µm).

Ulvophyceae é uma classe de algas verdes da divisão Chlorophyta, [4] [5] [6] que inclui diversas espécies de algas marinhas comuns, entre as quais as alfaces-do-mar (espécies do género Ulva) e os géneros Codium, Acetabularia e Caulerpa. In experimentally acidified lakes in Canada. This lineage, often named the Chlorophyta (Lewis and McCourt 2004), contains the great majority of green algal species and morphological diversity. Counterclockwise from top left: flagellate cells of Pterosperma sp. A.G.B. (f) Ascophyllum (Phaeophycean) and Vertebrata (Rhodophyte); image courtesy of Eric Salomanki. Among secondary plastid-bearing organisms, euglenophytes also possess a chlorophyll a- and b-containing plastid, and Cavalier-Smith hypothesised that chlorarachniophytes and euglenophytes arose from a single common secondary endosymbiosis; this is called the Cabozoa hypothesis (Cavalier-Smith, 1999, 2003). MX-AZ01) to 75.2% (for Ulva linza, core Ulvophyceae), with only nine taxa displaying values less than 58.0%: the prasinophyte Nephroselmis olivacea (Nephroselmidophyceae), six trebouxiophyceans, all from the Elliptochloris + Choricystis clade (a late-emerging clade of the core Trebouxiophyceae), as well as the chlamydomonadaleans Chlamydomonas leiostraca and V. carteri (Fig. The Ulvophyceae or Ulvophytes are class of green algae, [3] distinguished mainly on the basis of ultrastructural morphology. Chlorophyta (Ulvophyceae or green seaweeds, and freshwater or terrestrial Chlorophyceae and Trebouxiophyceae) and unveil a rapid radiation of Chlorophyceae and the principal lineages of the Ulvophyceae late in the Neoproterozoic Era. Nearly all species in the orders Bryopsidales (=Caulerpales) and Dasycladales and a majority of the species in the Cladophorales (=Siphonocladales), Ulotrichales, and Ulvales are marine (O'Kelly and Floyd 1984a; Floyd and O'Kelly 1990; Graham and Wilcox 2000; Yoshii et al. Several investigators follow Mattox and Stewart (1984) in recognizing three classes within the lineage, Ulvophyceae (before 1982, “Ulvaphyceae”), Trebouxiophyceae (formerly Pleurastrophyceae; Friedl 1995), and Chlorophyceae, defined primarily on the basis of molecular sequence trees, flagellar apparatus absolute configurations, and, in some cases, details of morphology, reproduction, and life history (e.g., Graham and Wilcox 2000; Lewis and McCourt 2004). For example, the major group of green seaweeds (Ulvophyceae) is not closely related to the major freshwater macroalgae or to land plants (Leliaert et al., 2012). 1995). In Rhodophyta, the main storage carbohydrate, Floridean starch (Section 2.5.3.1), is deposited in the cytoplasm. The Great Lakes recently has become a Cladophora story of ‘déja vu.’ From the 1960s through the early 1980s, massive growth of C. glomerata characterized the rocky shorelines of Lakes Erie and Ontario, as well as localized areas of Lakes Michigan and Huron (note: low temperatures of Lake Superior discourage Cladophora growth). FIGURE 6. 1994). In spite of their ecological importance as primary producers and microbioeroders of marine calcium carbonate (CaCO3) substrata, endolithic phototrophs spanning both prokaryotic (the cyanobacteria) and eukaryotic algae lack established molecular resources for their facilitated survey with high throughput sequencing. Large size and complexity has evolved independently within green algae on multiple occasions. [citation needed], The origin and early diversification of the Ulvophyceae likely took place in the late Neoproterozoic. However, molecular phylogenies have not supported the monophyly of chlorarachniophyte and euglenophyte plastids (Rogers et al., 2007; Turmel, Gagnon, O’Kelly, Otis, & Lemieux, 2009). 63–71. Cladophora thrives in P-enriched waters with dependable substrata (e.g., large boulders) for attachment. (c) Pterosiphonia (Rhodophyte; largest cells approximately 70 µm long). Optimum 500; light compensation point ∼20; high tolerance for very low light; growth rates, biomass decrease very slowly in complete darkness (minimal loss of chlorophyll for up to 60 days), Increased photosynthesis from 0–2.1 (up to 8 for small tufts); decreased at higher levels, Grazed when small; can also be dislodged by some fauna; generally a poor, nonpreferred food source. (l) Colpodella ( ‘Chrompodellid’; 12 µm). Unlike Chlorella, vegetative cells of the marine D. salina are photoautotrophic biflagellate (flagella are of equal length), naked (without cell walls but surrounded by a glycocalix) unicells, which divide vegetatively by binary fission and sexually by producing 32 daughter cells that are liberated by rupture of the zygote wall, which contains sporopollenin (Borowitzka and Borowitzka, 1988). The first complete plastid genome of chlorarachniophytes was reported in Bigelowiella natans by Rogers, Gilson, Su, McFadden, and Keeling (2007), and their phylogenetic analysis using 38 plastid-encoded proteins demonstrated that the B. natans plastid branched within the clade consisting of the Ulvophyceae, Trebouxiophyceae, and Chlorophyceae (UTC group). What does ulvophyceae mean? Burkholder, in Encyclopedia of Inland Waters, 2009. polymorpha') Type - classis - order: A lgae / Ulvophyceae / Scotinosphaerales The effects of these widespread, re-established blooms on Lake nutrient cycling and food web structure-including the die-off, transport, and decomposition of large amounts of Cladophora organic matter to the hypolimnion-remain to be determined. The Droop equation from classical algal physiology was used to model specific growth as a function of tissue P concentration. This list of Ulvophyceae genera is sub-divided by order and family.Some genera have uncertain taxonomic placement and are listed as incertae sedis.The list is based on the data available in AlgaeBase, the Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS), the National Center for Biotechnology Information taxonomic database (NCBI), and other taxonomic databases. 1994). Yoshihisa Hirakawa, in Advances in Botanical Research, 2017. The sea lettuce , Ulva , belongs here. In some habitats, increased nitrogen enrichment (Ni, urea) can also stimulate increased production. 4). CAUP H 5301 (sub 'Kentrosphaera gibberosa var. Origin of specimens and sequence data used for molecular phylogenetic analysis, including their database accession numbers. Cercozoa is a phylum of the supergroup Rhizaria, and it comprises morphologically diverse protists such as flagellates and filose testate amoebae that are widely distributed in marine, freshwater, and soil environments (Adl et al., 2005; Burki & Keeling, 2014; Cavalier-Smith, 2002). Moreover, the GC bias of these trebouxiophycean plastomes is also evident at noncoding regions by the occurrence of small repeats rich in G and C (Turmel et al., 2015). Flowing-water habitats where these organisms can become abundant are considered here as mesotrophic; although they can be characterized by very low nutrient concentrations, supplies are continually renewed from the flowing water, and boundary layers are minimized. Documented high densities of Escherichia coli and other fecal bacteria within the decomposing mats represent a potential human health threat, suggesting that the efficacy of water column E. coli as an indicator of fecal contamination from sewage may be compromised in locations where Cladophora accumulates along Great Lake shores. Archaeplastida, Stramenopiles, and Alveolata. Supplementary table S2. These are also the only orders in the chlorophyte lineage that contain heavily calcified species.

In contrast to what has been observed for the majority of examined chlorophyte plastomes, variation in GC content of protein-coding genes in the Elliptochloris/Choricystis clade, including the polar alga Coccomyxa subellipsoidea (Smith et al., 2011), is higher at third codon positions (29%–64%) than at the more functionally constrained first and second codon positions (Smith et al., 2011; Turmel et al., 2015).

Macroalgal seaweeds primarily occur in two kingdoms, the Plantae and Chromista. 2004a), have been recorded continuously from the Ordovician to the Recent, whereas Rhopalia catenata, equated with modern Phaeophila dendroides (Ulvales; Vogel, et al. The Ulvophyceae or ulvophytes are a class of green algae,[4] distinguished mainly on the basis of ultrastructural morphology, life cycle and molecular phylogenetic data. The Mt. Among the Trebouxiophyceae, only Prasiola and Rosenvingiella (Prasiolales) are known to have sexual life histories, and the pattern is unique and incompletely characterized (Hoek et al. This phylum is divided into two subphyla, Filosa and Endomyxa (Cavalier-Smith & Chao, 2003). From Auer M (2005) Modeling Cladophora growth: A review of the Auer-Canale framework In: Cladophora Research and Management in the Great Lakes, pp. Chlorella vulgaris, Dunaliella salina, and Haematococcus pluvialis are unicellular representatives of the phylum Chlorophyta and used today in commercial productions, while Parietochloris incisa and Botryococcus braunii show potential for lipid and hydrocarbon production, respectively (see below). Their diversification played a key role in the evolution of animals. Overall, it is likely that chlorarachniophytes have evolved by a secondary endosymbiosis in which an ancestral green alga of the Bryopsidales was engulfed and integrated by a phagotrophic ancestor of the Filosa. Others, such as Rhizoclonium, Pithophora and some species of Cladophora live in fresh water[6] and in some areas are considered weeds. ulvophycean (plural ulvophyceans) Any green alga of the class Ulvophyceae. 2016 February 6, “Distinctive Architecture of the Chloroplast Genome in the Chlorodendrophycean Green Algae Scherffelia dubia and Tetraselmis sp. Similar investigations performed with [1-13C]glucose confirmed the presence of the sole MEP pathway in two other unicellular green algae, Chlorella fusca and C. reinhardtii.209 A series of labeling experiments performed later with [1-2H1]DX and DL-[2-13C]MVA and investigation by mass spectrometry of the resulting labeling patterns of sterols and phytol were consistent with the sole presence of the MEP pathway in representatives of four classes of the Chlorophyta (Chlorophyceae, Ulvophyceae, Trebouxiophyceae, Prasinophyceae, which are in its present acceptance not a monophyletic clade).214 The MEP pathway is also involved in the biosynthesis of the acyclic triterpenes, botryococcenes, and tetramethylsqualene in the green alga Botryococcus braunii race B.215 Using the same labeling method, a mixed origin was found for the isoprenoids of the Charophyceae lineage (Spirogyra sp., Klebsophormidium flaccidum, Mesostigma viride), which is phylogenetically related to higher plants.214 The absence of the cytosolic MVA pathway has been now confirmed by the completely sequenced genome of C. reinhardtii, Chlorophyta (green algae). 1992; Kim et al. These were undoubtedly caused by the accumulations of one or more species in the macroalgal genus Ulva. [5] The sea lettuce, Ulva, belongs here. In the Chlorophyceae, all known representatives, including the famous Chlamydomonas, the sexual life history is zygotic. The Euglenophyte Euglena gracilis, grown in heterotrophic conditions in the presence of [1-13C]glucose, synthesizes ergosterol and phytol through the MVA pathway.209 In contrast, a subsequent study, utilizing either [1-13C]glucose or [5,5-2H2]DX, suggested that the MEP pathway contributes to carotenoid biosynthesis in E. gracilis and not to the formation of phytol, which is obtained from the MVA pathway.218, Plastids are widespread in plant and algal lineages. The Chlorophyceae and Trebouxiophyceae are widely represented in freshwaters and on land but are poorly represented in the sea. ces of bacterial origin. Description: The Ulvophyceae or ulvophytes are a class of green algae, distinguished mainly on the basis of ultrastructural morphology, life cycle and molecular phylogenetic data. Sizes indicate maximum dimension of each cell (excluding flagella, thecae, etc. Future genomic and ultrastructural studies of this interesting organism will address this issue. 2004). Other articles where Ulvophyceae is discussed: algae: Annotated classification: Class Ulvophyceae Primarily marine; includes Acetabularia, Caulerpa, Monostroma, and sea lettuce (Ulva). Meaning of ulvophyceae. Search for MEP pathway genes in apicomplexan parasites resulted in the identification of the DXR gene in Plasmodium species responsible for malaria219 and later of all other genes of the MEP pathway.220,221 The MEP pathway is thus functionally in all intra-erythrocytic life stages of P. falciparum.222 These genes were also found in other apicomplexan parasites such as Eimeria tenella and Toxoplasma gondii, responsible for toxoplasmosis, which lacked in addition to the MVA pathway genes, indicating that only the MEP pathway is operative in these organisms.223,224, Feeding with [1-13C]glucose revealed that ergosterol and cycloartenol are synthesized through the MEP pathway in the nonphototrophic yeast-like alga Prototheca wickerhamii, suggesting its close relationship with the unicellular green algae.225 Perkinsus marinus, a parasite involved in mass mortality in oyster farms and phylogenetically related to plastid-bearing dinoflagellates and apicomplexans, also possesses all genes of the MEP pathway.226, Kirsten Heimann, Roger Huerlimann, in Handbook of Marine Microalgae, 2015. Chloroplast phylogenomics has become a useful approach to elucidate the enigmatic evolutionary relationships of different taxonomic levels of plants 1,2,3,4.However, resolving the ancient phylogenetic history remains difficult because of non-phylogenetic signal 5, or use of simplistic substitution models 6 in the large-scale molecular data. The phylum Rhodophyta, also in the kingdom Plantae, has about 7100 species that are placed in three subphyla of which the Eurhodophytina is the largest with about 6900 species. Most of the species in these genera are from freshwater or terrestrial habitats (Rindi et al. 2004). Nucleomorph 18S rDNA trees showed an affiliation with either the Trebouxiophyceae (Van de Peer et al., 1996) or the Ulvophyceae (Ishida, Green, & Cavalier-Smith, 1999). [7][8] Although most contemporary ulvophytes are marine macroalgae (seaweeds), ancestral ulvophytes may have been freshwater, unicellular green algae. http://www.rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au/_data/assets/image, http://www.southalabama.edu/…/00Horner/micro.jpg, http://www.euita.upv.es/varios/biologia/images/Figur…, Servin-Garciduenas & Martinez-Romero, 2012, Elizabeth Rodríguez-Salinas, ...

Its adverse effects include overgrowing irrigation systems and drainage canals, clogging of water intakes leading to power outages, overgrowth, and displacement of beneficial aquatic plants, reductions in invertebrate densities and fish spawning, reduction in species biodiversity, anoxia from decaying mats resulting in kills of other aquatic life, retention of pathogenic microbes such as Escherichia coli Migula and enteroocci fecal bacteria as a potential human health hazard, negative effects on recreational use of affected shoreline and nearshore areas, and depressed property values of adjacent homes. We were able to identify 14 different algal genera com-bining both markers: eleven genera can be assigned to Bryopsidophyceae, two to Dasycladophyceae and one to Ulvophyceae.
