Distribution and abundance of benthic macroalgae in the Swan-Canning Estuary, south-western Australia



Distribution and abundance of benthic macroalgae in the Swan-Canning Estuary, south-western Australia



Journal of the Royal Society of Western Australia 87(Part 1): 9-14



The macroalgal communities of the Swan-Canning Estuary were investigated between August 1995 and May 1997. Thirty-six macroalgal species were recorded, predominantly of the division Chlorophyta. Macroalgal species number was highest (15 to 22 species) in the lower, more marine reaches of the estuary, and in the seasons of hydrological change when freshwater flows were commencing or abating (i.e. spring and autumn).
