Abstract

For the first time in history, a genetically altered seaweed is colonising very large areas of the marine environment in an uncontrollable way. The green alga, mutated by exposure to chemicals and ultraviolet light, has shown dan- gerous capabilities allowing it to adapt, colonise, and threaten multiple bio- topes.
