    Phymatolithon (Melobesioideae, Hapalidiales) in the Boreal–Subarctic Transition Zone of the North Atlantic: A Correlation of Plastid DNA Markers with Morpho-Anatomy, Ecology, and Biogeography
    Phymatolithon (Melobesioideae, Hapalidiales) in the Boreal–Subarctic Transition Zone of the North Atlantic: A Correlation of Plastid DNA Markers with Morpho-Anatomy, Ecology, and Biogeography
    Walter H. Adey, Jazmin J. Hernandez-Kantun, Paul W. Gabrielson, Merinda C. Nash, Lee-Ann C. Hayek (Author)

    Species of coralline algae of the genus Phymatolithon that occur in the Boreal–Subarctic transition zone of the North Atlantic are  segregated systematically by a statistical/developmental analysis of their morpho-anatomical characters. Variations in vegetative tissue morphology, particularly with respect to cell division and elongation patterns, as well as variation in conceptacle (reproductive structure) location and development, are the result of a complex of genetic and environmental factors.

Brooks, Robert Friedel, Bill Ayrey, Linda Hewes, Pierre Comizzoli, Cory Bernat, Debbie Mielewski, Ellen Lee, Angela Harris, Cynthia Flanigan, Lucien H. Schockey, Thea van Oosten, Molly McGath, Jan Vozenilek, Nancy Wallace, Dianna Parker, Mike Biddle, Susan Freinkel (Chapter/Paper Author)

    This volume brings together papers presented at “The Age of Plastic: Ingenuity + Responsibility,” a Smithsonian symposium hosted by the Museum Conservation Institute on June 7–8, 2012. The event was conceived as a cross-disciplinary
    exploration of plastic as technological material, cultural phenomenon, preservation challenge, and force on the environment. Writers, scientists, conservators, historians, filmmakers, designers, and policy makers offer researched and first-hand accounts from life in the Plastic Age.
