From other sources
Diet photosynthetic [details]

Distribution Ellesmere Island (and into Hudson Bay) to North Carolina [details]

Habitat exposed to protected coasts and in bays, estuaries and salt marshes [details]

Morphology Brown colour results from the dominance of the xanthophyll fucoxanthin; this masks the other pigments, Chlorophyll a and c (no chlorophyll b), beta-carotene and other xanthophylls. [details]

Reproduction general for group: most brown algae have an alternation of haploid and dioploid generations; The haploid thalli form isogamous, anisogamous or oogamous gametes and the diploid thalli form zoospores by meiosis. [details]
