|Journal||Marine Biology. Berlin, Heidelberg|
|Abstract||Gametophytes of E. radiata (C.Ag.)J.Ag. from two New Zealand locations with different field temperature ranges were exposed to temperatures of 5 degree to 26 degree C in saturating light. Plants from Goat Island Bay (Lat. 36 degree 16'S, Long. 174 degree 48'E) grew in 9.3 degree to 25 degree C and reproduced in 9.3 degree to 24 degree C. There was no growth at 8 degree C and plants died at 26 degree C. Plants from the cooler location, Houghton Bay (Lat. 41 degree 20'S, Long. 174 degree 40'E), grew from 8 degree to 24 degree C and reproduced up to 15 degree C but not at 21.5 degree C. The plants did not grow at 6 degree C and diet at 26 degree C. The timing of the first cell division and subsequent growth rate were retarded close to the upper and lower tolerance limits.|
