The marine algal ecology of some islands of the Hauraki gulf
Report to Annual Meeting
- Department of Botany, University of Auckland.
I would like to present a brief picture of the algal zonation patterns that can be observed at various stations in the Hauraki Gulf. I will mention animal species to some extent in addition to the algal dominants as it is impossible to consider the plants by themselves. With respect to nomenclature, the terms of Stephenson and Stephenson ( 1949) will be used, except for the substitution of the prefix sub- for infra- in the case of infralittoral and infralittoral fringe.
I also wish to point out that much of the data that I will talk about are the results of the work of Dr. Cassie, and my own contribution is mainly limited to the observation of the sublittoral communities that I will describe (DeBow, 1955).
