Previous work has shown that accumulations of macroalgae have been associated with the loss of seagrasses in Oyster Harbour, near Albany in Western Australia (Bastyan, 1986; Kirkman, 1987). This observation prompted further studies into the water quality, seagrasses and macroalgae of the harbour, including an intensive sampling program in February 1988 to determine the size of the nutrient pools in water, sediments and plants (Hillman et al, 1990). The year preceding the 1988 sampling… Expand

Nutrient levels and the development of diatom and blue-green algal blooms in a shallow Australian estuary
TLDR
It is shown that the magnitude of the Nodularia bloom in summer is related to the minimum salinity of the estuary (and hence total river flow), maximum phosphate concentration and total riverine phosphorus loading, in the previous winter. Expand
Nutrient loading and macrophyte growth in Wilson Inlet, a bar-built southwestern Australian estuary
Wilson Inlet is a ‘bar-built’ estuary, open to the ocean only when a sandbar has been breached after river flow. estimates are presented of phosphorus and nitrogen loadings from rivers, losses to theExpand
The effect of light temperature and salinity on photosynthetic rates of an estuarine cladophora
TLDR
Cladophora occurs throughout the year as free-living, densely-branched spheres in beds on the floor of the Peel Inlet, Western Australia, where light presumably limits rate of dry matter increase in these beds even in summer. Expand
An Aegagropiloid Form of the Green Alga Cladophora montagneana Kütz. (Chlorophyta, Cladophorales) from Southwestern Australia
An aegagropiloid form of Cladophora montagneana is described from Peel Inlet, a shallow estuary in Western Australia, where massive accumulations of this alga have followed eutrophication. PreviouslyExpand
