Abstract:

The ecology and distribution of marine bottom flora along the continental coast of Okhotsk Sea are discussed. There are five coastal regions with different composition of algae and their distribution within supralitoral spray - zone, litoral intertidal - zone and sublitoral subtidal zone southwestern, northwestern, northern, northeastern, southeastern coasts. The main belts of algae are as follows Urospora penicilliformis, Gloiopeltis capillaris, Heterochordaria abietina, Corallina pilulifera, Fucus evanescens, Porphyra sp., Diatomeae, Halosaccion spp., Lessonia laminarioides, Laminaria spp., Alaria spp., species of Rhodophyta. In spite of the algae there are lichens Placoma and Caloplaca in supralitoral, and marine grasses Zostera marina in the sublitoral. The distribution of algae on continental coast depends greatly on the origin of substratum, rhythm of tides, light, current, temperature, fog, solar radiation. Author
