Endoliths of calcareous algae
Study of marine endolithic micro-organisms which live in calcareous algae, excavating tunnels in the calcified cell walls. These organisms, already described in corals, mollusc shells and inorganic substrata, have so far never been described in detail in red calcareous algae.
Main projects:
  • Ultrastructural observation, using transmission and scanning electron microscopy, of the organisms found so far in the Gulf of Trieste.
  • Ecological study arising from the fact that these micro-organisms function as pollution bioindicators and as indicators of the marine photic zone, since some of them are more sensitive than others to the shortage of light.
  • Study of their relationship with living and dead calcareous algae and of their possible pathogenicity.
  • Verification of the presence of these organisms in other seas of the Italian coast. Collaboration with Dr. Le Campion-Alsumard of the University of Marseilles. Scientist in charge L. A. Ghirardelli

    47. Natural History Museum: Research And Collections: Botany
    The botany department at the Natural History Museum has gathered algae and mossesand ferns and fungi, including mushrooms, from all over the world.
    Dictyophora cinnabarina
    The Botany department at the Natural History Museum has gathered algae and mosses and ferns and fungi, including mushrooms, from all over the world. So where are they? Whole plants and fungi or portions of them have been collected and dried for research done months or years later. These specimens are wrapped in special paper, tagged with field data, and stored in large metal cabinets. Eventually a scientific name is put on each one. They are all dead, so there is no fussing with fertilizing and watering. The problem is that insects like to nibble on most of them, so the cabinets are kept full of moth ball smelling "herbarium perfume." The oldest collection in our herbarium of 200,000 specimens dates back to the 1800s. More recent collecting expeditions have brought back fungi from Southeast Asia and Australia, Central and South America, and California as well. The algae come from the ocean along the coast of California and further south. The mosses originally lived in the southwestern deserts and on the Olympic Peninsula. There are ferns from Mexico and South America and from gardens in southern California and Hawaii. Detailed inspection of these preserved plant samples by the botanists among us helps us understand what has changed over time or what plants and fungi are related to each other. They are full of DNA for molecular studies. And sadly enough, in many cases they are a record of where their kind once lived in a long gone habitat.

    Book Review
    Catalogue of the Benthic Marine Algae of the Indian Ocean
    written by Paul C. Silva, Philip I. Basson and Richard L. Moe. (From ASBS Newsletter Number 97, December 1998) University of California Publications in Botany vol. 79, xiv + 1259 pp.[errata]. University of California Press, c/o California Princeton Fulfillment Services, 1445 Lower Ferry Road, Princeton, NJ 08618; (Publicity) University of California Press, Publicity Dept., 2120 Berkeley Way, Berkeley CA 94720 USA Price: US$130.00 + p+h of US$38.48 (airmail) [US$12.04 surface mail] One of the first problems encountered by the authors was how to define the Indian Ocean; there are so many definitions of the Indian Ocean the authors needed an invariable workable set of boundaries. In this volume the Indian Ocean has been defined as the area bounded by Africa (East coast to Cape Agulhas), the southern Indian Ocean island of St. Paul, the western coastline of Australia from West Cape Howe in the south to Cape Londonderry in the north, through to Indonesia via Timor and the southern coasts of Java and Sumatra to Singapore, along the southern coast of Malaysia to the coastlines delimiting the Bay of Bengal, around India and the coast bordering the Arabian sea to the east coasts of Africa. The first six pages of the publication give a brief but valuable account of the history of exploration in the Indian Ocean with respect to the macro-algae. For those who would never have the need to consult the body of the text this is a comprehensive coverage of marine exploration and should not be ignored. The names of many of the early collectors of algae in the Indian Ocean will be familiar to other plant taxonomists working with angiosperms from the Indian Ocean but the information is especially useful to all marine biologists. This is particularly true for the numerous expeditions that traversed the Ocean during the nineteenth century: during this century the expeditions led by Weber (Siboga), Gardiner (Sealark) and land-based collections of the Stephenson's (in Africa) were important and came before the International Indian Ocean Expedition organised by the UN in the 1950's.

    Freshwater Algae in Australia.
    A guide to conspicuous genera.
    written by T.J. Entwisle, J.A. Sonneman and S.H. Lewis (From ASBS Newsletter Number 92, September 1997)
    Specifications: 204 mm x 128 mm, 242 pp., c. 300 colour photographs plus free-hand illustrations.
    This is an excellent work and will be invaluable to anyone - amateur, student or professional biologist - requiring a guide to the genera of freshwater algae that occur in Australia. Of the 400 or so genera of freshwater algae that occur in Australia 96 are covered - all genera of macroalgae and the most common genera of microalgae likely to be encountered. The book commences with some introductory notes on the following: using the book; the divisions of algae encountered in Australia; algal habitats; collection, preservation and storage of algae; microscopy; algal blooms; algal weeds; rare and threatened algae. Pages 20-29 are devoted to a pictorial key which initially sorts taxa into ten different groups and three genera on the basis of easily seen characteristics, e.g. non-motile unicells, motile unicells, unbranched filaments, whorls of small branches. Each group is then treated separately, and the clear drawings of diagnostic features of each genus should normally enable ready identification. The broad groupings recognised in the initial key are colour-coded and these same groups and codings are used in the main text; the codings occur on the outer margins of the photograph page and are readily visible when flicking through the book. This means that the more detailed key can be easily skipped over, the user examining the mostly excellent photographs that adorn this work to identify a member of any one group. It is very much a well-presented, 'user-friendly' book.

    Adventitious buds form along a stem, generally after the stem has had an injury. This is a survival response for the plant. These adventitious buds will differentiate either into roots or shoots depending upon whether they are above or below ground.

      This to me is one of the finest undergraduate texts on botany that I have been able to find. The explanations are extremely lucid and the diagrams and photographs are excellently researched and displayed. This book because of its clarity, maybe used by the general public and as a source of fascinating information into the world of plants. Not only is the anatomy and physiology well covered by the authors, but they delve into diversity, genetics and also cover the fundamentals of primary and secondary metabolism and area that is of real importance to those studying vegetarianism, food phytochemistry, nutrition and herbal medicine. It is a must for those who can afford to spend that little bit extra on a contemporary botanical text. Dr John Wilkinson

Inevitably some areas, such as the British Isles and the former British Empire, are better represented than others, such as the eastern Palaearctic. Other areas that are well represented include for flowering plants the Himalayas, north Africa and Mesoamerica, and for bryophytes and lichens Antarctica, the Mascarenes, Malesia and temperate parts of the Southern Hemisphere. Historical range The earliest specimens in the collection date from the last decade of the 16th century. New material continues to be added to the collections, so that they span 400 years. The collections provide information on what was growing where throughout this time, and also provide an insight into the progress in plant taxonomy throughout the last 500 years. Current priority areas for collecting The 1961 Morton Agreement with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew gave the Museum special responsibility for the vascular plant floras of the British Isles, Europe, and North and Central America. Consequently, comparatively little vascular plant material from other areas has been added to the Museumís collections since then.

    That’s why she spends her days growing and maintaining botany’s extensive collectionof algae and fungi, which are used in undergraduate laboratory classes
    Managing an Algae Zoo [This is one section of the article, "Behind the Scenes in Arts and Sciences." Visit Ellen Duffield’s office in Hitchcock Hall, and you’ll find yourself distracted by her collection of algae. Glass jars line the shelves, filled with Ventricaria —resembling luminous green bubbles—and Acrosorium , a tangle of thin red strands, as well as other plants. “I think they’re really beautiful,” says Duffield, whose official title is Culture Curator for the Department of Botany . “But more than that, they are such an important part of the world we live in. Algae produce about half the oxygen and fix half the carbon in the world. And fungi are great recyclers—if a tree falls down, they get in there and turn it into soil.” Duffield wants students to share her fascination with these small, simple organisms. That’s why she spends her days growing and maintaining Botany’s extensive collection of algae and fungi, which are used in undergraduate laboratory classes to illustrate their form, function, and development. Caring for a collection of 200 algae and 200 fungi—used by about 2,000 students in 20 different classes each year—is no simple task. “It’s sort of like managing a zoo,” says Duffield. “Each organism has its own diet, light, temperature needs, and reproductive cycle. For classes, you have to have them at the right point so that students can observe the reproductive process. A lot of my job is scheduling.”
