The decomposition of two macroalgal species Cladophora glomerata (CHLOROPHYTA) and Pilayella littoralis (PHAEOPHYTA) was studied in the laboratory and field conditions. These species are known to cause the extensive ‘macroalgal blooms’ in the whole coastal range of the Baltic Sea. The objective of the experiments was to determine decomposition rates of the macroalgae, follow the changes in tissue nutrient content and validate the role of benthic invertebrates in this process. In the laboratory… CONTINUE READING
