The distribution, species composition and abundance of Enteromorpha spp. in the Gulf of Gdansk
Languages of publication
The variations in distribution, species composition, biomass and water content of Entero-morpha spp. in the Gulf of Gdansk in relation to sampling stations and season are discussed. Only four Entero-morpha species were identified in the samples collected, the most frequent being E. intestinalis (L.) Link. The species composition was found to vary in relation to sampling stations and seasons. The abundance of Enteromorpha spp. varied at different stations with a maximum at Puck variations in biomass were observed. Although Enteromorpha spp. were characterised by a high water content (96.56?0.40% of WW), no statistically significant variations in the water contents of these species with respect to sampling stations could be detected. Although there was a tendency towards seasonal changes, these occurred within a narrow range.
