Effects of sedimentation on macroalgae: species-specific responses are related to reproductive traits

  title={Effects of sedimentation on macroalgae: species-specific responses are related to reproductive traits},
  author={Britas Klemens Eriksson and Gustav Johansson},
Although increases in sedimentation have been proposed to interfere with benthic communities in many coastal areas worldwide, few experimental studies have investigated the effect of sedimentation on community composition and assessed species-specific responses. In a field experiment on a rocky shore on the Swedish east coast (northern Baltic Proper) we confirmed the hypotheses that ambient sedimentation influences macroalgal abundance and community composition, and that species-specific… CONTINUE READING
