It is also tolerant of changes in salinity, high wave exposure, and exposure to air. Algal abundance is influenced by both nutrient availability and herbivory.

Fine hairs on the branches trap sediments, which, in areas with high sedimentation, can be detrimental to water quality. Agardh Weber Bosse Acanthophora spicifera var. On the infrared spectrum of a polysaccharide obtained by alkaline spcifera of the red alga Acanthophora spicifera Vahl Boergesen.

The species does not survive prolonged exposure to air Russell, In the following spicivera, it spread along O’ahu and eventually to all the Hawaiian islands.


This was considered possibly due to the long thin branches of A. Marine macroalgae from the Gulf of Carpentaria, tropical northern Australia.

Both fertile and reproductive thalli occur throughout the year with the dominance of each of the three stages tetrasporophytes, gametophytes, and vegetative also changing within the year, although tetrasporic thalli generally dominate the population. Management notes for this location. The genus Acanthophora is most similar to the genus Chondria, but differs in the sicifera of the branchlets.

Acanthophora spicifera has been reported to have a triphasic alternation of generations. Prickly Seaweed Acanthophora spicifera is abundant on calm, shallow reef flats, tidepools, and on rocky intertidal benches.

Influence of size on primary production in the reef coral Pocillopora damicornis and the macroalga Acanthophora spicifera. It is amongst the most successful alien spickfera species in this region, where it may modify native communities and compete with native algae. The relative success of both species is considered to be heavily dependent on the duration and types of habitat disturbance and the ability of each species to maintain space during competition, reproduction, and vegetative growth Smithsonian Marine Station, In Panama, it has been reported that fish can exclude A.
