Maerl beds worldwide face habitat destruction (e.g. from dredging, fishing gear and fish farms), the combined pressures of ocean warming and acidification, and the spread of invasive species. Maerl beds have high conservation status in European legislation, yet their associated flora is poorly known. Here, we evaluate the known macroalgal diversity of NE Atlantic maerl beds from Svalbard to Portugal. Maerl beds occur from the low intertidal down to 51 m in the clearest waters. To date, 349… CONTINUE READING
