Molecular-Assisted Alpha Taxonomy Genetic Testing Reveals Species of Red Algae
(PRWEB) November 19, 2014 Phycologia—The use of molecular-assisted alpha taxonomy (MAAT) has helped to distinguish species of the Bossiella genus of red algae. Whereas a morphological study showed four Bossiella species in the eastern Pacific Ocean, this genetic screening revealed 17 species groups. With genetic data and further morphological study, these groups could be identified, ...
