Among Hawaiian marine algal species with different morphologies, seaweed complexity (surface area to biomass ratio) is not a consistent predictor of epiphytal amphipod abundance or number of species. Some seaweed species with relatively high complexity supported low numbers of amphipod individuals and species. Hawaiian epiphytal amphipods are not generally seaweed specific to certain seaweeds, rather they are distributed among many species. The results of this study show that the relationships… CONTINUE READING
