  • Abstract Estimation of net primary production (NPP) of intertidal seaweeds by the harvest method is beset with a number of problems, prominent among which is the lack of a method to quantify precisely the dead and decaying parts, as these two fractions do not accumulate in situ, but get washed away and cast ashore. In the light of this, while presenting the results of NPP of 3 intertidal seaweeds from Veraval on the western coast of India, the merits and demerits of different methods adopted… CONTINUE READING
