Population structure in the red calcifying alga Corallina officinalis in the North Atlantic: implications in a time of global climate change

In 2018 Henry Glynn conducted a masters research project using SNP markers to analyse population genetic patterns of Corallina officinalis in the Northeast Atlantic. This is a follow-up to a previous project. Abstract The intertidal zone consists of a variety of habitats providing shelter and resource for a wide array of wildlife including commercial species. Red coralline algae … Continue reading Population structure in the red calcifying alga Corallina officinalis in the North Atlantic: implications in a time of global climate change

Population genetics of the calcifying algae, Corallina officinalis

In 2017 Teresa Vale conducted a master’s research project using SNP markers to analyse population genetic patterns of Corallina officinalis in the Northeast Atlantic. This is a follow-up to this previous project. Abstract Calcifying macroalgae are an integral part of marine communities but they are significantly vulnerable to ocean acidification caused by an increased uptake of … Continue reading Population genetics of the calcifying algae, Corallina officinalis

The effects of past, present and future climate change on the red algae Corallina officinalis within the North Atlantic

In 2016 Amy Jackson conducted a master's research project testing SNP markers to analyse population genetic patterns of Corallina officinalis. Abstract Anthropogenically driven climate change is projected to influence a vast number of species. Of particular concern to oceanic acidification and ocean warming are the red calcifying macroalgae, Corallina officinalis. Due their vulnerability to climate change … Continue reading The effects of past, present and future climate change on the red algae Corallina officinalis within the North Atlantic
