Population studies of Laminaria hyperborea from its northern range of distribution in Norway

  title={Population studies of Laminaria hyperborea from its northern range of distribution in Norway},

Eight populations of Laminaria hyperborea from wave-exposed localities in Finnmark (70–71°N) were compared with two populations in Vega (65°N). Standing stock in shallow water (3–5 m) was within the same range in the two areas (6–16 kg fr. wt. m−2). Both the highest and lowest value of standing stock were registered in Finnmark. Degree of wave-exposure was determined by the numbers of sectors exposed to open sea at each locality, with each sector given a relative wind force value. The most wave… CONTINUE READING
