Most conceptual marine eutrophication models predict that ephemeral and epiphytic macroalgae will become substantially more abundant with increasing nutrient richness. This expectation is based on the fact that most of these fast-growing algae possess high requirements for inorganic N and P and, therefore, suffer from nutrient limitation under nutrient poor conditions. We tested the hypothesis that nutrient enrichment will stimulate the abundance of ephemeral macroalgae by studying the… CONTINUE READING
