California Seaweed eFlora Understanding the consequences of global climate change and anthropogenic alteration of the marine environment The California coastal environment has suffered from the consequences of rapid population growth: alteration or degradation as the result of development, pollution, overfishing, oil drilling, mariculture and global marine transportation. Habitats for seaweeds, especially in southern California, are vastly different than they were 100 years ago. We know that biological consequences of global climate changes in the Pacific marine environment will be broad-reaching. Species ranges will expand or contract, depending on physiological tolerances and capacities to adapt to new conditions. Shifts in geographic ranges have proceeded more rapidly in marine vs. terrestrial systems, with a high potential for community-level changes.

Abstract Seaweed is a famous delicacy in some parts of the Asia and also a well-known source of important food hydrocolloids, such as agar, alginates, and carrageenan. Checklist of the Mosses Mosses are the second most speciose group of plants, after the enormously richer angiosperms. A Checklist of Mosses lists 12,800 recognized species in 901 genera, including 42 synonymous genera with species that have not been transferred to the accepted genus. Each listed species is qualified using a four-level ranking system that indicates our level of knowledge about the species.

Rupert Barneby Catalog The Barneby Catalogue The Barneby Legume Catalogue holds data from the subset of the legume collection that includes specimens of the 33 genera (see List on this page) that were monographed by the late, world-renowned taxonomist Rupert C. Barneby (1911-2000) and his collaborators, Howard S. Irwin and James W. Alltech – 2014 Global Feed Survey Summary – Animal Feed Market In the last days I had a look in to Alltech survey 2014 comparing with the same informations from 2013 report. During 2013 the first 20 countries produced 751,7 million tons of feed from a total of 954 million, respectively 78,8%. The total feed produced during 2014 was estimated by Alltech at 963 million tons and the top 20 produced “only” 749,6 million tons, 77,8% from the entire world feed production. The Alltech 2014 Global Feed Survey Summary is available in the follow link:

The Online World Grass Flora Welcome to GrassBase - Descriptions These pages present a set of detailed morphological descriptions of all grass species. The data set is a database that has been developed over many years and is stored in DELTA format. You can browse or print out descriptions or use them to check identifications, write floral treatments, interactively identify species and also as the basis of further taxonomic work. Effect of premix and seaweed additives on productive performance of lactating friesian cows Abstract Bendary, M.M, M.I. Bassiouni, M.F. Ali, H.M. Aquatic Invasives Home One of the greatest threats to the health of North America's Great Lakes is invasion by exotic species, several of which already have had catastrophic impacts on property values, the fisheries, shipping, and tourism industries, and continue to threaten the survival of native species and wetland ecosystems. This bi-national thematic collections network of >20 institutions from eight states and Canada will digitize 1.73 million historical specimens representing 2,550 species of exotic fish, clams, snails, mussels, algae, plants, and their look-alikes documented to occur in the Great Lakes Basin. Others have been placed on watchlists because of their potential to become aquatic invasives. Join the network as a regular visitor and please send your feedback to Ken Cameron
