Winter favours growth and survival of Ralfsia verrucosa (Phaeophyceae) in high intertidal rockpools in southeast Australia
The recruitment, growth and survival of the brown crust Ralfsia verrucosa occurring around the southern coast of Australia were studied. Up to 43 upper intertidal and supratidal pools containing just Ralfsia and sometimes Hormosira on a reef with a wave-cut platform at about 36°S were monitored for just over 5 years. With an extreme tidal range of 2.0 m, tidal height on the platform was increased by an average of 0.5 m by swell. In winter mean pool temperature differed little from the sea but...[Show more]
