Further connections between the benthic marine algal floras of the northern Arabian Sea and Japan

TLDR
Identifications made on some recent collections of benthic marine algae from the Sultanate of Oman, northern Arabian Sea, have revealed several new records for this region, some of which had previously been known from Japan and environs.

The tripartite biogeographical index: a new tool for quantifying spatio‐temporal differences in distribution patterns

TLDR
The case study on Arabian macrophytes clarifies the use and explanatory power of the Tulloss tripartite similarity index and shows how the index allows for a non-arbitrary selection of taxa and taxon groupings based on their distribution pattern.

Pharmacological Activities of Hypnea musciformis

TLDR
The results indicate that H musciformis probably have psychotropic and anxiolytic profile and the regular use of seaweeds as a diet will relieve the symptoms of anxiety.
