This dataset contains macroalgae data collected from the Tjörnes Peninsula in the North of Iceland.
The aim of this study was to describe the gradient of the benthic algal vegetation along the coast of Berufjördur, with focus on the influence of salinity and substrate configuration on the zonation patterns and the leading algal associations. Additionally, attention was paid to the differences between the main algal zones on sheltered versus exposed sites of rocky formations.
The purpose of this study was to follow the gradient of the benthic algal vegetation from the head to the mouth of the Borgafjördur. Attention was paid to the zonation patterns, algal associations and the species distribution. These data were also compared to the vegetation of other Icelandic fjords.
This study dealt with the biomass of algal settlements at different locations along the Istrian coast in the Northern Adriatic Sea. The eulittoral and upper sublittoral zone of rocky sites was investigated during three subsequent years: 1967, 1968 and 1969.
Three ecologically different areas along the Snaefellsnes peninsula southwestern Iceland) were investigated. The main algal associations and zonation patterns were described, as well as the gradients in low-salinity areas.
The aim of this study was to describe the species distribution, main algal associations and zonation patterns along the coast of Mjóifjürdur from the head of the fjord and outwards.
