Advances in Botanical Research, 64, 185–243. Phylum Glaucocsytophyta. Herron, M. D., Hackett, J. D., Aylward, F. O. The phylum Rhodophyta is now subdivided into two subphyla, Cyanidiophytina and Rhodophytina, and seven classes, Cyanidiophyceae, Bangiophyceae, Compsopogonophyceae, Florideophyceae, Porphyridiophyceae, Rhodellophyceae and Stylonematophyceae (Fig. Seeking the ultimate and proximate causes of Volvox multicellularity and cellular differentiation. The first plastid originated from a primary endosymbiosis, whereby a previously non-photosynthetic protist engulfed and enslaved a cyanobacterium. The progenitor of green plants was likely a unicellular flagellate or at least had flagellate stages in its life cycle. In addition to the fossils indicative of a Mesoproterozoic origin of red algae, the remarkably well-preserved multicellular red algae from the Doushantuo Formation in southern China (ca. Falcon, L. I., Magallon, S. & Castillo, A. 2012). Consequently oceanic primary production increased an order of magnitude (Canfield, Rosing & Bjerrum, 2006), permitting the evolution of more complex life forms (Catling et al., 2005) and adapted or novel biochemical pathways (Falkowski, 2006; Raymond & Segré, 2006). Springer Netherlands. & Katz, L. A. Phylogenomic analysis supports the monophyly of cryptophytes and haptophytes and the association of Rhizaria with Chromalveolates. (2006) indicate that more than 50% of the transferred genes have other functions, from metabolism to cell division, instead of being plastid-targeted (Deusch et al. Patron, N. J., Inagaki, Y. & Lewis, P. O. Archibald, J. M. (2009). Phylogeny in which the branch lengths are proportional to time using geo-paleontological date (e.g. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America 108, 6497-6502. & Keeling, P.

Even though several analyses provide moderate to strong support for a monophyletic Archaeplastida (Burki et al., 2009; Burki et al., 2007; Hackett et al., 2007; Patron, Inagaki & Keeling, 2007; Rodriguez-Ezpeleta et al., 2005), other studies suggest that the Archaeplastida might be paraphyletic with respect to the Hacrobia (Hampl et al., 2009; Burki et al. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 108, 13624-13629. Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B-Biological Sciences 361, 1023-1038. Because oxygenic photosynthesis involves the photolysis of water into electrons, protons, and free oxygen, Cyanobacteria are singularly responsible for oxygenating the atmosphere and transforming a once reducing environment into an oxidising one (Holland, 2006).

Of special interest are the Cyanidiophyceae, a group of unicellular and presumably asexual algae, which live in thermo-acidophilic conditions that are detrimental to most eukaryotic live on earth (Barbier et al., 2005; Ciniglia et al., 2004; Matsuzaki et al., 2004; Yoon et al., 2006a). In this process, a unicellular photosynthetic cyanobacterium was incorporated by a larger non-photosythetic eukaryote.

The chloroplasts are surrounded by a double membrane, have thylakoids grouped in lamellae, and contain chlorophyll a and b along with some accessory pigments including carotenoids and xanthophylls. Primary endosymbiosis ... Diversity of red algae Clockwise from top left: Bornetia secundiflora, Peyssonnelia squamaria, Cyanidium, Laurencia, Callophyllis laciniata. The diversity contained in the Compsopogonophyceae, Porphyridiophyceae, Rhodellophyceae and Stylonematophyceae is still ill-defined as can be witnessed by the many unnamed lineages that typically adorn phylogenetic trees (Scott et al., 2008; West et al., 2007; Yang et al., 2010; Yokoyama et al., 2009; Zuccarello, Kikuchi & West, 2010; Zuccarello et al., 2009; Zuccarello, West & Kikuchi, 2008; Zuccarello et al., 2011). Bhattacharya, D., Helmchen, T., Bibeau, C. & Melkonian, M. (1995). López-Bautista, J. M., Rindi, F. & Guiry, M. D. (2006). Furthermore, several studies point towards an early diverging red algal lineage (Burki et al., 2009; Hackett et al., 2007; Patron et al., 2007), although this result might be biased by the inclusion of clades with secondary plastids (Deschamps & Moreira, 2009). Falkowski, P. G. (2006). Even though a reinterpretation of this event is necessary now that the chromalveolate hypothesis is being increasingly challenged (Archibald, 2012; Baurain et al., 2010), it does vouch for the antiquity of the divergences that separate the deep red algal lineages. The timing of eukaryotic evolution: Does a relaxed molecular clock reconcile proteins and fossils? The flagella (generally two or four on a cell) are isokont, which means that they are similar in structure, although they may differ in length. Conversely, terrestrial members of the core chlorophytes are mainly asexual (Rindi, 2011). & West, J. (2007). Cite as: De Clerck, O., K. Bogaert, and F. Leliaert. nov.

Primary Endosymbioses Plastid primary endosymbiosis is an endosymbiotic relationship between phototrophic bacteria (cyanobacteria) and a eukaryotic host. Parfrey, L. W., Grant, J., Tekle, Y. I., Lasek-Nesselquist, E., Morrison, H. G., Sogin, M. L., Patterson, D. J. The cyanobacterium was gradually enslaved and integrated into the cellular machinery as a new organelle: the plastid. Growth forms include filaments, blades, elaborately branched thalli as well as calcified crusts (coralline algae). BMC Evolutionary Biology 11, 104. Yoon, H. S., Muller, K. M., Sheath, R. G., Ott, F.

Secondary Endosymbiosis occurs when the host cell in primary Endosymbiosis is itself engulfed by another cell. (2004) suggested that the Cyanidiophyceae diverged from the remaining red algae prior to the secondary endosymbiotic event that gave rise to the Chromalveolata. Even though the cyanobacterial origin of the plastids in these groups is beyond dispute, the number of endosymbiotic events and the relationships among the three lineages is more contentious (Delwiche, 1999; Delwiche, 2007).

Monophyly of the group is well established based on ultrastructural, biochemical and molecular data (Leliaert et al., 2012; Lewis & McCourt, 2004). & McCourt, R. M. (2004). It has now become clear that endosymbiosis explains the origin of the photosynthetic organelle (plastid) in different algal groups. Sudman, M. S. (1974).

The incongruence between analyses is likely caused by systematic biases including endosymbiotic gene transfer as suggested by the high instability of resultant topologies of photosynthetic clades with varying levels of taxon sampling and missing data (Parfrey et al., 2010).
