Variability in the structure of epiphytic assemblages of Posidonia oceanica in relation to human interferences in the Gulf of Gabes, Tunisia.

In this study we evaluate whether the pattern of spatial variability of the macro-epiphyte assemblages of leaves of Posidonia oceanica differed in relation to anthropogenic interference in the Gulf of Gabes (southern coast of Tunisia). A hierarchical sampling design was used to compare epiphytic assemblages at 5 m depth in terms of abundance and spatial… CONTINUE READING
