    1. Diving work carried out between April 1964 and July 1966 on the North Wales coast (Anglesey) showed that the west coast stations A and B could be divided into four distinct sublittoral regions, the east coast station showed a more irregular distribution of the flora.2. The four distinct regions were: TheLaminaria forest, the rock below theLaminaria zone, the bed of loose stones supporting algae in summer, and the bed of sand supportingLaminaria saccharina.3. The distribution of algae at station C was more dependant upon the local topography of the boulders making up the sea bed.4. There was a difference between the fruiting periods of algae growing at a great depth and in the shallow water.
