Primary production dynamics in seagrass beds of Mississippi Sound: the contributions of seagrass, epiphytic algae, sand Cited by: This regime is characterised by dominance of macroalgae (algae attached to the bottom sediments that can form extensive beds), phytoplankton (free-living, planktonic algae) or epiphytic algae (algae growing on the surface of seagrass leaves), or a combination thereof (Cardoso et . Epiphytes are well known to play important roles in enhancing productivity and biodiversity within marine macrophyte ecosystems, with extensive research on epiphyte community composition and ecosystem function for seagrass ecosystems 1,2,3,4,5,6,r, epiphyte communities on macroalgae have received far less attention with few studies investigating epiphyte physiology or by:

The stable isotope data, in combination with measured high biomass and primary production rates of the epiphytic algae, strongly suggest that these algae are the primary source of organic matter for higher trophic levels in seagrass beds of Mississippi by: In contrast, epiphytic algae bloomed in August, with a high production ( g C m −2  day −1), but eelgrass production ceased and its biomass subsequently decreased.

Primary production rates (as 14 C uptake), biomass (dry weight), and chlorophyll a (chl a) (measured by HPLC) of epiphytes in enriched beds were significantly greater than those of epiphytes in control beds. Based on microscopic observations, the dominant epiphytic algae were diatoms and red and brown by: Primary production dynamics in seagrass beds of Mississippi Sound: The contributions of seagrass, epiphytic algae, sand microflora and Ecology Progress Series – CrossRef Google ScholarCited by: Epiphytic algae growing attached to shoalgrass (Halodule wrightii) blades accounted for nearly half of the aboveground live biomass and primary productivity of two seagrass meadows in southern Texas from June–December They also accounted for the major fraction of recognizable diet material of common seagrass meadow macroinvertebrates, such as grass shrimp (Palaemonetes), crabs.

Multiple stable isotope analyses were employed to examine food web dynamics in a northern Gulf of Mexico seagrass system in which epiphytic algae were the single most important primary productivity component, being responsible for 46 and 60% of total system and benthic primary production, by: Of all of these, algae are the most abundant and diverse group to colonize seagrass leaves.

Epiphytic algae have received the lion’=s share of the attention but the trophic role of the sediment. The leaves in the photograph are host to a filamentous green algae of the genus Cephaleuros (perhaps the widespread C.

virescens), an epiphytic (or parasitic) green algae that forms small colonies (ca cm in diameter) on leaf surfaces. Sometimes called green scurf or red rust, especially in the tropical nursery trade, it is one of the few algae parasitic on higher plants.

Translation memories are created. Seagrasses are foundation species in estuarine and lagoon systems, providing a wide array of services for the ecosystem and the human population. Understanding the dynamics of their stands is essential in order to better assess natural and anthropogenic impacts.

It is usually considered that healthy seagrasses aim to maximize their stand biomass (g DW m−2) which may be Author: Vasco M. Vieira, Inês E. Lopes, Joel C. Creed. Tropical seagrass ecosystems Read. Handbook of seagrass biology Ronald C. Phillips, C. Peter M Read.
