Enhancement of Saccharina kelp production by nutrient supply in the Sea of Japan off southwestern Hokkaido, Japan


Apart from certain studies on Macrocystis pyrifera (Linnaeus) C. Agardh, very few in situ experimental studies on production have been carried out to verify that “bottom–up effects” (relating to nutrient supply) are more important than “top–down” effects (relating to herbivory) in temperate kelp forests. The effects of nutrient supply on recruitment and… (More)
