Seaweeds provide food, shelter and a place to live for a wide range of animals. This complex community, feeding on the weed itself, on the sediment that it traps, or on the microscopic organisms growing on the surface, is very accessible but much of its ecology remains unknown. This book outlines what is known of the natural history of the animals living on seaweeds. It draws attention to topics that offer scope for further exploration. Keys and illustrations are provided to help in the identification of this diverse community of creatures, and information is given on techniques for further study.About the Author:
