The largest seaweed, giant kelp (Macrocystis) is the fastest growing and most prolific of all plants found on earth. Growing from the seafloor and extending along the ocean surface in lush canopies, giant kelp provides an extensive vertical habitat in a largely two-dimensional seascape.

It is the foundation for one of the most species-rich, productive, and widely distributed ecological. “The Biology and Ecology of Giant Kelp Forests will be the seminal work on kelp forest ecosystems.

It greatly updates the authors’ earlier synthesis on the topic, not only bringing their work up to date but also providing a fresh look at how kelp forests ‘work’ in different parts of the world.” ―John Pearse, Professor Emeritus, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Cited by: Giant kelp (Macrocystis) forests support some of the most species-rich communities on plants reported up to 60 m long growing from the seafloor and extending along the sea surface in lush canopies, these forests are true “biogenic engineers” that provide extensive vertical habitat in a largely two-dimensional seascape, alter the light environment, and dampen water motion.

The largest seaweed, giant kelp (Macrocystis) is the fastest growing and most prolific of all.

Kelp forests occur worldwide throughout temperate and polar coastal oceans. Inkelp forests were also discovered in tropical waters near Ecuador.

Physically formed by brown macroalgae, kelp forests provide a unique habitat for marine organisms and are a source for understanding many ecological processes. Over the last century, they have been the focus of extensive research, particularly.

This introductory chapter provides an overview of the emergence of the study of giant kelp (Macrocystis) forests. InCharles Darwin published the first observations on the ecology of giant kelp forests, and made the first analogy between this community and terrestrial forests.

However, it was around a hundred years after Darwin's observations in South America that the study of giant kelp. ECOLOGY AND NATURAL HISTORY OF A STAND OF GIANT KELP, MACROCYSTIS PYRIFERA, OFF DEL MAR, CALIFORNIA RICHARD J.

ROSENTHAL,' WILLIAM D. CLARKE,'AND PAUL K. DAYTON3 ABSTRACT The assemblage of plants and animals living within a stand of Macrocystis pyrifera ofT the coast ofsouthern California was studiedfrom July through February Ecology.

Kelp is a type of seaweed (or marine algae) that describes 27 genera worldwide. Some kelps form dense patches on rocky reefs resembling a forest of trees underwater and are referred to as kelp forests. One third of southern California’s kelp forests are found within Channel Islands National Park and Channel Islands National Marine.

Giant kelp (Macrocystis), the largest of the seaweed species is the fastest growing and most prolific of all plants found on earth. Growing from the seafloor and extending along the ocean surface in lush canopies, giant kelp provides an extensive vertical habitat in Pages: Macrocystis pyrifera is commonly known as the giant kelp as it may exceed 50 m in length, and it forms aquatic forests off California.

Various species of Laminaria (usually 3–5 m in length) are the dominant kelp along coastal areas of the North Atlantic, and they also occur as an understory species in the temperate Pacific.Book Review: “The Biology and Ecology of Giant Kelp Forests”, by DR Schiel and MS.
