pepper dulse The common name for the red seaweed Laurencia pinnatifida (family Rhodomelaceae, order Ceramiales). The seaweed is variable in form and colour. When growing in bright sunlight on the upper shore, it usually grows in short, dense tufts and is yellowish-green in colour; but when growing further towards the low-water mark it is larger and dark reddish-purple. The plant is generally flattened and extensively branched in one plane. It has a strong, distinctive, pungent smell, and a peppery taste. It has been used as a condiment in some areas.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
