Abstract
    Many studies of oil pollution have shown that shore algae frequently flourish following elimination or severe reduction of the more sensitive grazing organisms. Preliminiary studies suggest that although adult fucoid plants can tolerate exposure to spills of crude oil, the young developing zygote is sensitive to relatively low concentrations of 'water soluble' extracts of crude oils.
