Description
Data on the location of found macroalgal and seagrass species and study of the algal community on the pneumatophores of mangrove trees on the West coast of Gazi Bay during July and August 1987. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Gallin, E (1988). Vegetatie-ecologische studie van de mangrove langs de westkust van Gazi Bay (Kenia) = Vegetation-ecological study of the mangroves along the west coast of Gazi Bay (Kenya). Ir Thesis. Rijksuniversiteit Gent - Faculteit van de Landbouwwetenschappen: Ghent. 157, 4 platen pp. more

Study of the vertical (species composition as function of height on the pneumatophores) and horizontal (species composition according to the distance of the pneumatophores to the sea).
