Fragment generation, survival, and attachment of Dictyota spp. at Conch Reef in the Florida Keys, USA

Abstract

During the past decade, the relative abundance of the brown macroalgae Dictyota spp. has been high in the Florida Keys. Recent studies have shown that members of this genus successfully reproduce via vegetative fragmentation. To investigate the importance of fragmentation on the reef community, this study examined: (1) the degree of epiphytism on benthic… (More)
