Abstract
    Microorganisms play an important role in the biology of macroalgae. A number of important functions, ranging from growth enhancement, production of toxins and other secondary metabolites, regulation of morphology, and settlement of invertebrate larvae and spores to pathogenicity, have been ascribed to microorganisms, mostly based on cultivation approaches. Yet, the composition, structuring, and dynamics of microorganisms present on the algal host have been scarcely studied so far using cultivation-independent molecular methods. This chapter focuses on recent insights into the composition of the bacterial microbiota associated with macroalgae gained by gene sequence-based analysis.
