Taxonomie du genre Sargassum (Fucales, Phaeophyceae) en Nouvelle-Calédonie et dans le Pacifique Sud. Approches morphologique et moléculaire

Abstract : Sargassum C. Agardh is a genus of marine brown macrophyte classified in the class Phaeophyceae. This genus is distributed worldwide and recognized as the most diversified of the order Fucales. It is especially well represented in the tropical and inter-tropical Pacific where it forms large underwater forests of well known ecological and economical importance. But with more than a thousand taxa described over the last 200 years, and an old and complex classification, identifying a Sargassum species is a difficult task. The Sargassum diversity of the south Pacific islands has been studied here in its Indo-Pacific biogeographical context. A combined morphological and DNA analyses method was applied to recent collections from several Pacific regions. The classification, as well as the taxonomic value of classic morphological characters, was revised. More than 52 news synonymies have been proposed as well as significant revisions of the traditional classification of Sargassum subgenus Sargassum.
