Sur la richesse floristique de certains peuplements photophiles infralittoraux de Port-Cros (Var, France)

Publication Date


An account is given of the infralittoral phytobenthos (Rhodophyta, Phaeophyceae, Chlorophyceae) of Port-Cros Island (France). From 2 to 10 m depth, under calm conditions, up to 109 species were listed for each 400 cm² quadrat sample. It must be emphasised that these species numbers are considerable, and that the part played by algae in the photophilous settlements is conspicuous or even dominant.
