Despite their ubiquity, the species diversity and distribution patterns of coralline algae are poorly known by ecologists, and even by specialist phycologists. The aim of the project is to use molecular systematic methods to unravel patterns of coralline algal diversity and distribution along the Norwegian coast.
KelpEx will, for the first time, quantify the production and export of kelp (Laminaria hyperborea) detritus and its role in fuelling diverse ecosystems, shaping their structure and function in the Arctic region of Norway.
