Dynamic Seaweed Habitats within the Ningaloo Reef Landscape

ningaloo atlas blog

Some of you may remember the talk that Dr Chris Fulton gave at the Ningaloo Marine Research Exposition in February 2013 on the extent, complexity and dynamism of seaweed habitats at Ningaloo.  Below is an older talk that Chris gave at a symposium for the ARC Centre for Excellence in Coral Reef Studies  which covers much of the same territory that he covered in his talk in February:

  • Seaweed habitats are dynamic in their persistence and extent;
  • Their biomass, extent and complexity is comparable to coral habitats at Ningaloo;
  • They are vital in the facilitation and support of marine creatures (including those considered commercial resources) and habitats.

    doing a little research on this. And he in fact
    bought me breakfast simply because I discovered it
    for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanx for spending time to discuss this matter here on your site.
