Subject Aerial photography in ecology. Intertidal zonation -- Hawaii. Marine algae -- Hawaii. Plant indicators -- Hawaii. Water quality biological assessment -- Hawaii.
Description Zonation of algal communities in the intertidal areas of the Hawaiian islands has been correlated with zones of reduced salinity caused by submarine fresh-water springs. Laboratory salinity tolerance experiments showed that the green seaweed Ulva (known as "sea lettuce") tolerated brackish water of half of normal ocean salinity, whereas, Acanthophora sp. did not. A field survey of salinity and algal species zonation at a coastal spring on the island of Oahu between Diamond Head and Black...
