Colonization of floating seaweed by pelagic and subtidal benthic animals in southwestern Iceland

  title={Colonization of floating seaweed by pelagic and subtidal benthic animals in southwestern Iceland},
  author={Agnar Ing{\'o}lfsson},
Coastal floating seaweed, originating from the intertidal, is colonized by various pelagic and subtidal benthic animals. At southwestern Iceland, common macrofaunal colonizers include the fish Cyclopterus lumpus L., the harpacticoid Parathalestris croni (Krøyer), the amphipods Calliopius laeviusculus (Krøyer), Gammarellus angulosus(Rathke), Dexamine thea Boeck and Ischyrocerus anguipes (Krøyer), and the isopod Idotea baltica Pallas. The colonization patterns of these species were studied by… CONTINUE READING
