• Detecting no natural hybridization and predicting range overlap in Saccharina angustata and Saccharina japonica 

      Zhang, Jie; Yotsukura, Norishige; Jüterbock, Alexander Oliver; Hu, Zi-Min; Assis, Jorge; Nagasato, Chikako; Yao, Jianting; Duan, Delin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Natural hybridization can play a significant role in evolutionary processes and influence the adaptive diversification and speciation of brown seaweeds. However, this phenomenon is as yet unknown in Saccharina kelps. ...
    • Intraspecific genetic variation matters when predicting seagrass distribution under climate change 

      Hu, Zi-Min; Zhang, Quan‐Sheng; Zhang, Jie; Kass, Jamie M.; Mammola, Stefano; Fresia, Pablo; Draisma, Stefano G. A.; Assis, Jorge; Jueterbock, Alexander; Masashi, Yokota; Zhang, Zhixin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Seagrasses play a vital role in structuring coastal marine ecosystems, but their distributional range and genetic diversity have declined rapidly in recent decades. To improve conservation of seagrass species, it is important ...
    • Priming of marine macrophytes for enhanced restoration success and food security in future oceans 

      Jüterbock, Alexander; Minne, Antoine J.P.; Cock, J. Mark; Coleman, Melinda Ann; Wernberg, Thomas; Scheschonk, Lydia; Rautenberger, Ralf; Zhang, Jie; Hu, Zi-Min (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Marine macrophytes, including seagrasses and macroalgae, form the basis of diverse and productive coastal ecosystems that deliver important ecosystem services. Moreover, western countries increasingly recognize macroalgae, ...
