Tissue nutrient content of Gracilaria spp (Rhodophyta) and water quality along an estuarine gradient
Horrocks JL, Stewart GR, and Dennison WC ·
Tissue nutrient content of Gracilaria spp. (Rhodophyta) was tested as a bioindicator of water column nutrient availability in the Logan River and southern Moreton Bay, south-eastern Queensland. Macroalgae were incubated for one to two weeks within flow-through incubation chambers suspended in the water column. Tissue nutrient content of Gracilaria spp, and water column nutrients were measured at five sites over a five-month period.
