Three forms of the carrageenan-containing red alga Tichocarpus crinitus (Gmel.) Rupr. have been found in Sivuch'ya Bay, Sea of Japan. The paper provides descriptions of morphological, anatomical, and some physiological features of the forms and environmental conditions in their habitats. It is shown that different forms appear under the effects of ecological factors and the adaptation to different environmental conditions is revealed via morphological, anatomical, and some physiological changes in the algae. It is supposed that the polymorphism in T. crinitus ensures morphological and functional adaptation of an organism to its environmental conditions.
