    Abstract : The in origin intertidal marine brown alga Fucus vesiculosus L. grow permanently sublittoral in the brackish Bothnian Sea, side by side with the recently discovered F. radicans L. Bergström et L. READ MORE

  2. 2. Trophic effects on the maintenance of biodiversity in the Fucus zone

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Botaniska institutionen

    Author : Sonja Råberg; Stockholms universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biodiversity; epiphytes; eutrophication; faunal assemblage; filamentous algae; Fucus radicans; Fucus vesiculosus; grazers; nutrient supply; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Marin ekologi; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Abstract : Ecologically important macroalgae with large thalli and complex structures are threatened worldwide due to anthropogenic activities such as pollution. In the northern Baltic Sea the salinity is very low; the only large algae producing complex structural habitats found there are the fucoid species Fucus radicans and F. vesiculosus. READ MORE

  3. 3. Grazing and the geographical range of seaweeds The introduced Fucus evanescens and the newly described Fucus radicans

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Botaniska institutionen

    Author : Helena Forslund; Stockholms universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; non-indigenous species; phlorotannin; herbivore defense; ; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology Marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestrisk; limnisk och marin ekologi Marin ekologi; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Abstract : Along the coast of temperate oceans brown algae of the genus Fucus form dense stands on rocky shores and are keystone species of the coastal ecosystem. These large seaweeds are perennial and function as substrate for many sessile marine organisms, provide shelter for fauna and juvenile fish, and are food source. A number of abiotic (e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. On the endemic Fucus radicans in the Baltic Sea

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Ellen Schagerström; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; seaweed; sexual reproduction; clonality; fragmentation; dimorphism; salinity; distribution; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Abstract : The brown macroalgae Fucus radicans is endemic to the Baltic Sea, but little is known about this newly described species. This thesis investigates the ecology and role of F. radicans within the species poor Baltic Sea ecosystem. The thallus of F. READ MORE

  5. 5. Physiological responses of marine and brackish Fucus vesiculosus L. with respect to salinity
