Observations on the growth and maturation of 2 4 year old plants of eisenia bicyclis laminariaceae phaeophyta



Observations on the growth and maturation of 2 4 year old plants of eisenia bicyclis laminariaceae phaeophyta



Japanese Journal of Phycology 39(1): 43-48



Growth and maturation of 2-4 year old plants of Eisenia bicyclis were investigated from June 1986 through June 1989 at Iwaki on the Pacific coast of northeastern Honshu, Japan. During a year, lateral blades grew rapidly from January to August but slowly from September to December. Lateral blades with sori were observed throughout the year in plants 3-4 years old. Lateral blades had wrinkles on their surface from January through August, when lateral blades with sori showed a decrease. Plants of 2, 3 and 4 years old were found to produce 34, 44 and 42 lateral blades yearly, and to discard 30, 44 and 42 blades, respectively, in a year. From the wet weight of lateral blades and the number of lateral blades falling off a year, it is estimated that the yearly loss of organic matter of 2, 3 and 4 year old plants is about 1.3, 2.5 and 2.1 kg (wet weight), respectively.
