Epiphytic diatom communities on macroalgae from Iceland coastal waters were investigated during July 2005. Ten species of seaweeds have been collected belonging to brown, red and green algae. The analysis of epiphytic diatom community was carried out under scanning electron microscopy. The epiphytic diatom abundances varied from 7 ± 5 to 7524 ± 3491 cells mm−2. Erect growth forms were the most abundant, representing on average 50% of the total diatoms (Achnanthes cf. brevipes var. parvula… CONTINUE READING
