Announcing a new SA seaweed website!

Seaweeds of the South African South Coast

Now, almost ten years after we started this project, the website is up and running. It has descriptions and illustrations of the approximately 500 species of south coast seaweeds, including those that also occur on the west and KwaZulu-Natal coasts. At the moment only two genera have yet to be added (Laurencia and Porphyra, which are still under study), but we expect them to go on by the end of this year. The crustose (non-geniculate) corallines are not on the website, but can be identified using the keys in Maneveldt et al. (2008).
