Biodiversity of green algae covering artificial hard substrate surfaces in a suburban environment: a case study using molecular approaches.

In Middle European suburban environments green algae often cover open surfaces of artificial hard substrates. Microscopy reveals the Apatococcus/Desmococcus morphotype predominant over smaller coccoid forms. Adverse conditions such as limited water availability connected with high PAR and UV irradiance may narrow the algal diversity to a few specialists in… CONTINUE READING
