Marine algae of the northern Gulf of California : Chlorophyta and Phaeophyceae by James N Norris( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present treatment constitutes a taxonomic study of the green and brown benthic marine algae currently known in the northern Gulf of California. In all, 133 species were found: 4 classes, 7 orders, 13 families, 20 genera, and 63 species of Chlorophyta and 9 orders, 15 families, 26 genera, and 70 species of Phaeophyceae. The systematic account is a guide to the identification of marine algae from the northern Gulf of California, with the accepted name, keys, and descriptions of the orders, families, genera, and species. The date, place, and author(s) of valid publication of each taxon are cited. The current name for each species is given along with its basionym, type locality, synonyms, relevant taxonomic studies, habitat, and distribution in the Gulf of California and in the Pacific Ocean. Illustrations are provided for most species. A remarks section includes additional information on taxonomy, nomenclature, ecology, and/or other problems or facts of interest. In addition to reviewing the taxonomic phycological literature pertinent to the Gulf of California and Pacific México, new records and distribution extensions are given. Four new sections of Sargassum subgen. Sargassum are proposed: S. sect. herporhizum E.Y. Dawson ex J.N. Norris, S. sect. johnstonii E.Y. Dawson ex J.N. Norris, S. sect. lapazeanum E.Y. Dawson ex J.N. Norris, and S. sect. sinicola E.Y. Dawson ex J.N. Norris; five new combinations are made: Desmarestia munda subsp. mexicana (E.Y. Dawson) J.N. Norris, Epicladia condensata (Setchell et N.L. Gardner) J.N. Norris, Epicladia mexicana (Setchell et N.L. Gardner) J.N. Norris, Hincksia bryantii (Setchell et N.L. Gardner) J.N. Norris, and Sargassum sinicola subsp. camouii J.N. Norris et Yensen. One new species, Sporochnus neushulii J.N. Norris, is described
The genus Colpomenia Derbès et Solier (Phaeophyta) in the Gulf of California by Michael James Wynne( Book )

8 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Four species of the brown algal genus Colpomenia Derbs et Solier (Scytosiphonales) are recognized as occurring within the Gulf of California: C. sinuosa (Roth) Derbs et Solier, C. tuberculata Saunders, C. ramosa Taylor, and C. phaeodactyla, new species. Some of the specimens interpreted by Dawson (1944) as Rosenvingea intricata are now referred to C. ramosa Taylor. Although recorded from the Pacific coast of Baja California, C. ramosa has not yet been reported within the Gulf. Interrelationships of the species complex of Colpomenia with related genera such as Iyengaria Boergesen, Rosenvingea Boergesen, and Scytosiphon C. Agardh are discussed

Marine algae of the northern Gulf of California. Rhodophyta by James N Norris( )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present treatment constitutes a taxonomic study of the benthic marine red algae known in the northern Gulf of California. In all, 380 species of Rhodophyta belonging to two subphyla were found: the Rhodophytina represented by 2 classes, 2 orders, 2 families, 7 genera, and 14 species; and, the Eurhodophytina represented by 2 classes, 5 subclasses, 19 orders, 45 families, 132 genera, and 366 species. Of the red algae 67 are endemic species. Along with the 133 species of Chlorophyta and Phaeophyceae in the northern Gulf (Norris 2010) there are now 512 benthic marine macroalgal species known in the northern Gulf. The systematic account includes the accepted taxon name, descriptions of the subphyla, classes, orders, families, genera, and species of red algae presently known in the northern Gulf, with Keys to serve as a guide to their identification. Along with the current name for each species are its basionym, synonyms, type locality, relevant taxonomic studies, description, habitat, and distribution in the Gulf of California, and if applicable (i.e., not endemic) in the Eastern Pacific, Central Pacific, and/or Western Pacific. In addition to reviewing the taxonomic phycological literature pertinent to the Gulf of California and Pacific Mexico, several distribution extensions and new records are given. One new genus, one new subgeneric section, and eight new species are described. One new species name is given to replace an illegitimate name. Twenty-seven new combinations are made
Conspectus of the benthic marine algae of the Gulf of California : Rhodophyta, Phaeophyceae, and Chlorophyta by James N Norris( )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This publication constitutes an undated, annotated, systematic review of red, brown, and green benthic marine algae of the Gulf of California, Mexico, using the currently accepted taxon names, with the date and place of valid publication, type locality, and north to south distribution in the Gulf. The systematic list contains 719 species recognized in the Gulf of California, including 485 species of Rhodophyta, 109 species of Phaeophyceae, and 125 species of Chlorophyta. Among the previously recorded marine algae, 38 species are considered uncertain records or to have uncertain taxonomic status, the selection of a lectotype for Gracilaria hancockii resolves its taxonomic status, 3 combinations are made for recognized varieties of Caulerpa chemnitzia, and 15 species are excluded from the Gulf of California marine flora. The geographical distribution range of each species is given from its northernmost to southernmost locales within three regions the Gulf of California: the east coast of the Gulf (states of Sonora, Sinaloa, Nayarit, and northern Jalisco), the west coast of the Gulf (states of Baja California and Baja California Sur), and the islands of the Gulf, including the Islas Grandes (= Islas de la Cintura; Midriff Islands; states of Baja California, Baja California Sur, and Sonora). Remarks, where appropriate, are included on taxonomy, nomenclature, ecology, and/or distribution with the taxon."-- Informació de l'editor
New records of marine algae from the 1974 R/V Dolphin cruise to the Gulf of California by James N Norris( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Six species of benthic marine algae (one Chlorophyta, two Phaeophyta, and three Rhodophyta) are newly reported from the Gulf of California, Mexico. Species of Halicystis, Sporochnus, Bonnemaisonia, Dudresnaya, and Sebdenia represent genera new to the Gulf, with the last being new to North America. The distribution of twelve other species is extended. Two new nomenclatural combinations, Dasya baillouviana var. nudicaulus and Dasya baillouviana var. stanfordiana, are proposed. The morphological variation of some species is discussed. Spermatangia of Dudresnaya colombiana, and tetrasporangia and spermatangia of Kallymenia pertusa are reported and described for the first time
