The role of Phyllophora antarctica in structuring macrofaunal communities at Cape Evans
Entry ID: K082_2001_2002_NZ_3

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Benthic suveys indicate that Phyllophora is the only attached macroalga present at Cape Evans. Attached and drift algal biomass was quantified in quadrats (61) between 0 - 30m depth using stratified random sampling. The alga formed an extensive cover (mostly occurring as loose-lying accumulations) at all depths sampled. All algae were dried and weighed. Two techniques were used to determine the ...
