Also, the scope of galactan research was broadened to include carrageenans of the Baltic Sea, especially the furcellaran from the red alga Furcellaria lumbricalis.
The following taxa were considered as the key species (habitat-forming species) in the study area: Fucus vesiculosus, Furcellaria lumbricalis, Zostera marina, other higher plants (Stuckenia pectinata, Potamogeton spp.
The algal community at the site was dominated by Cladophora glomerata, Polysiphonia fucoides, Chorda filum, Stictyosiphon foeniculaceus, Ceramium tenuicorne, and Furcellaria lumbricalis.
We also analysed which environmental variables best predicted the observed spatial patterns of attached and drifting forms of the commercially important red alga Furcellaria lumbricalis in the whole Estonian coastal sea.
Overgrowth patterns of the red algae Furcellaria lumbricalis at an exposed Baltic Sea coast: the results of a remote underwater video data analysis.
Besides, the perennial species Furcellaria lumbricalis and Fucus vesiculosus and the higher plant Myriophyllum spicatum were widespread.
