Description
Inventory of epiphytic macroalgae on pneumatophores, rhizophores and Thalassodendron ciliatum and relative abundances of microphytobenthos sampled in the mangroves of Gazi Bay for 3 studies carried out between July 1987 and September 1991. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Polk, P.; Okemwa, E. N. (1993). Dynamics and assessment of Kenyan mangrove ecosystems n° TS2-0240-C (GDF): final report (April 1993).
