This textbook on the physiology and ecology of seaweed deals principally with the physical, chemical, and biological factors that affect growth and distribution. The authors lay stress on the interplay between environment and organism throughout. The topics examined include the way in which seaweeds are influenced by environmental factors such as light, temperature and water motion; the way they interact with each other and with marine animals; the way seaweeds develop from spores to mature plants; and the ways in which man can apply knowledge of these aspects of seaweed biology to the cultivation of commercially useful species.
