Genus: Hormosira Non-vascular – Native. covering 74 sites from South Australia, Victoria, H. banksii is the most broadly distributed brown macroalga in Australasia, with the edge of its equatorward distributional limit located at a cold-warm transition zone (∼28 °S). Summary 5 Hormosira banksii (known as Neptune's necklace, Neptune's pearls, sea grapes or bubbleweed) is a species of seaweed (brown algae, Fucales) found in Australia and New Zealand.It is commonly found in rock pools at mid-tide levels and is characterised by strings of olive-brown hollow beads. Chromista (chromists) → Phaeophyceae (brown algae) → Hormosiraceae → Hormosira banksii. Durvillaea potatorum and Hormosira banksii (Doblin and Clayton 1995). This study is by far the largest quantitative evaluation of morphological variation in H. banksii.

Hormosira banksii (Turner) Decaisne 1842: 331.. Phylum Phaeophyta – Order Fucales – Family Hormosiraceae. Appearance. We proposed and tested four hypotheses to explain this host occupation pattern. Hormosira banksii inferred accepted: Queensland: Classification codes under the Nature Conservation Act 1992; Bare scientific name reallocated to Hormosira banksii (Turner) Decne. It has branches (thalli) which are made up of strings of hollow, water-filled, round or oval-shaped beads joined together by a short stalk. Tan to dark brown. Several simple or branched stalks can arise from a simple disc-like holdfast. Endemic genus. Each bead is covered in many pores, giving it a rough surface. Phylum: Ochrophyta Hormosira banksii is a relatively large brown alga, which occupies the lower intertidal rocky platforms of southern Australasia. Providers NIWA NZIB Provider Contribution Summary Biostatus Superregnum: Eukaryota Hormosira banksii Taxonomy ID: 87157 (for references in articles please use NCBI:txid87157) current name Laboratory proce-dures for obtaining gamete release, fertilization, and WildNet taxon ID This information is sourced from the WildNet database managed by the Queensland Department of Environment and Science. 16 seaweed, Hormosira banksii , is investigated to assess its adhesive performance. The beads have a slimy layer which conserves moisture. No. Subregnum: Harosa Tan to dark brown. Hormosira banksii is a morphologically variable macro-algal species from southeastern and southern Australia, which has been previously categorised into ecoforms according to habitat. Several simple or branched stalks can arise from a simple disc-like holdfast. We investigated the effects of phosphate, ammonium, and a mixture of heavy metals as components of sewage effluent, together with the effects of reduced salinity due to sewage effluent discharge into a marine environment, on the development of Hormosira banksii (Turner) Decaisne embryos. We review the role of benthic macroalgae as ecosystem engineers and focus particularly on the temperate Australasian fucoid Hormosira banksii as a case study for rocky intertidal restoration efforts.

Infraphylum: Limnista Essais sur une classification des algues et des polypiers calcifères de Lamouroux. The dense colony of fronds can form a protective microhabitat where many molluscs, worms and small crustaceans shelter. Abstract Hormosira banksii is an important intertidal habitat-forming seaweed in southern Australia that shows large variation in morphology. Hormosira Species: banksii.

Hormosira banksii (Turner) Decaisne. The 17 production of the adhesive secretions was monitored using microscopy and staining 18 experiments, while the attachment strength over substrates of varied chemistry and 19 topography was indirectly evaluated through flow channel experiments. The intertidal seaweed Hormosira banksii (H. banksii) is an abundant species and important ecosystem engineer on rocky shores and estuaries in south-east Australia, where it creates thick canopies colonized by a range of invertebrates, particularly gastropods. Classification. The concentration of each effluent component tested in this study was calculated to … 335-343, 10.2216/08-96.1 Google Scholar Some infaunal bivalves do serve as anchors for holdfasts of macroalgae, like Katelysia rhinophera hosting Hormosira banksii in Princess Royal Harbor, Western Australia (Black and Peterson, 1987), and such macroalgal growth is habitat for many smaller crustaceans and fish. 1985: 181, figs 1–20. Endemic taxon. Lucas 1936: 80. Chromista (chromists) → Phaeophyceae (brown algae) → Hormosiraceae → Hormosira banksii. Hormosira occupies shells of Katelysia rhytiphora in preference to K. scalarina.

Branched chains of beads (vesicles) varying in shape from round to oval depending on habitat. General Description. Beads appear spotted/bumpy (conceptacles). Notheia anomala is a macroalgae in the family Notheiceae and the order Fucales.It is native to New Zealand and Australia.It is an obligate epiphyte that is commonly found growing on Hormosira (although there is a single unconfirmed observation of Notheia being attached to Xiphophora chondrophylla). Based on an experimental design developed by Toxikos Pty Ltd, Gunns Limited requested that the 72-h germination assay with H. banksii be extended to assess rhizoid growth over a 14 and 21-day exposure period, which may prove to be more Mueller R(1), Wright JT(1), Bolch CJS(1).

Hormosira banksii is a dominant intertidal alga characterised by limited dispersal of propagules, yet it has a broad distribution throughout temperate Australasia.
