This marine-phytosociological study of the two islands of Milos (1971) and Sikinos (1972), both belonging to the Cyclades, gives a general idea of the algal vegetation of the Aegean Sea. Comparative observations in the field as well as the analysis of many transects and the identification of collected material contributed to the recognition of some algal communities.
The existence of other seasonal communities (especially winter ones) was indicated by the occurrence of a poor summer-aspect. Ecological requirements (such as light, exposure and slope) of the different algal communities were recorded and their vertical distribution was obtained from the transect data.
Comparisons between these observations and conclusions were made with those of other authors for the western as well as for the eastern Mediterranean.
