Turbinaria

This article is about the brown alga. For the stony coral genus, see Turbinaria (coral).

Turbinaria is a genus of brown algae (Phaeophyceae) found primarily in tropical marine waters. It generally grows on rocky substrates.[1] In tropical Turbinaria species that are often preferentially consumed by herbivorous fishes and echinoids, there is a relatively low level of phenolics and tannins.[2]

The genus has shown promise as a way of removing lead from aqueous solutions.[3]

Species[edit]

AlgaeBase lists 30 current species of Turbinaria.:[4]
