Description
This dataset contains a list of epiphytic macroalgae species and their percentage of coverage on the penumatophores of the mangroves in Gazi Bay, Kenya, sampled during August-September 1989. Also the particle size distribution data from the different transects is noted. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: De Schryver, T. (1990). Epifytische wieren (Bostrychietum) in de mangrove van Gazi Bay (Kenia)= Epiphytic algae (Bostrychietum) in the mangroves of Gazi Bay (Kenya). MSc Thesis. Rijksuniversiteit Gent. Faculteit Wetenschappen: Gent. 99, appendix pp. more

Seven transects at right angles to the coastline and at increasing distance from the open sea were studied: two short transects on the left bank of the tide channel, two longer transects in the mixed mangrove vegetation of the right bank, and three transects near the inlet of the bay, at Gazi Beach. In total, 367 pneumatophores were collected.
