The composition and seasonal changes amongst the epifauna associated with Fucus serratus L. in Strangford Lough, Northern Ireland. Also known as serrated or saw wrack. Molluscs to Chordates. Fucus serratus is the key structuring species as the macoalgae form a canopy within this biotope that provides protection from desiccation for the various underlying foliose red seaweeds in addition to providing a substratum for a diverse range of epifauna. Hayward, P.J. Associated communities will also rapidly recover as most of the intolerant species produce planktonic larvae and are therefore likely to be able to recolonize quickly from surrounding areas. & Moss, D., 1998. The assessment is based on expert knowledge resulting in a 'Low' confidence score. Josefson & Widbom (1988) investigated the response of benthic macro and meiofauna to reduced dissolved oxygen levels in the bottom waters of a fjord in Sweden. The area of bare substratum also increased within the first two months of trampling but declined afterwards, although bare space was consistently most abundant in plots subject to the greatest trampling (Fletcher & Frid, 1996a, 1996b). Tags: tideswept tide swept brown algal shrub. If the entire population of Fucus serratus is removed, other species may come to dominate and the recovery will take considerably longer. Fucus serratus supports a wide variety of epiphytes with over 90 species having been recorded. Little, C., Partridge, J.C. & Teagle, L., 1991. NBN (National Biodiversity Network) Atlas. Fucus serratus grows in the Northern Atlantic Ocean, North Sea, and Baltic Sea on rocks near the surface in shorline regions. The serratus anterior muscle spans the upper eight or nine ribs. Hence, similar to Fucus serratus, Chondrus crispus would normally only recruit from local populations slowing down the recovery of remote populations. Scanlan, C.M.

Characterizing elements of this biotope are sponges, ascidians and red seaweeds in particular Halichondria panacea Ascidiella scabra and Chondus chrispus. Therefore, the assessments typically emphasise the sensitivity of Fucus serratus. When recruitment is occurring then densities may rise to 18-22/0.25 square metres. Himanthalia elongata , L. digitata and F. serratus were present in this zone. Resilience is thus assessed as ‘Medium’. By going with the flow, fucoids can reduce the relative velocity between algae and the surrounding water, thereby reducing drag and lift (Denny et al., 1998). A guide to commercially important seaweeds on the Irish coast. Orlov, D.V., 1996. Initial recolonization was dominated by diatoms and ephemeral macroalgae, followed by fucoids and then perennial red seaweeds. & Taylor, D.I., 1999. & Ingraham, A.O., 1999.

Disturbance is a structuring factor in intertidal habitats. Sensitivity assessment. The loss of macroalgae will result in the loss of habitat for associated sponge and ascidian communities. (ed. This community is encouraged by the increased water movement. JNCC, 2015. Krauflin et al. Marine Ecology Progress Series, 414, 107-116. Southwest-Ireland and Brittany are hot-spots of genetic diversity (Coyer et al., 2003; Hoarau et al., 2007) and may thus be more resilient to changes in temperature. Meiofauna seemed, however, unaffected by de-oxygenation. During the 4th year of exposure, however, Fucus serratus started to decline and population consequently crashed in the 5th year. Other species better able to tolerate desiccation will competitively displace Fucus serratus following changes in emergence regime. Arrontes (1993) determined that the dispersal of Fucus serratus gametes and fertilized eggs was restricted to within 1–2 m from the parent.

Slow growing species, including Chondrus crispus, declined in abundance, probably due to competition from faster growing red algal species such as Phycodrys rubens and Delesseria sanguinea. If smothering occurs whilst the alga is underwater and upright then not all the photosynthetic surfaces of adult plants will be covered. The influence of visitors on intertidal biodiversity. Therefore, at the level of the benchmark both resistance and resilience are assessed as ‘High’. [Fucus serratus], sponges and ascidians on tide-swept lower eulittoral rock.

Water movement. 1985b. Molecular Ecology, 16 (17), 3606-3616. The upper shore extent of Fucus serratus and Chondrus crispus may be replaced by species more tolerant of desiccation and more characteristic of the mid-eulittoral such as Fucus vesiculosus or Ascophyllum nodosum. There is considerable literature on the light compensation point of marine algae (see Luning, 1990) but it is difficult to correlate such evidence with 'shading', as light saturation and compensation points depend on light availability, light quality, season and turbidity. Increased temperature (>15°C) can enhance biotic stress on Fucus plants by increasing mico- and macrofouling rates (Wahl et al., 2010). The resilience and the ability to recover from human induced pressures is a combination of the environmental conditions of the site, the frequency (repeated disturbances versus a one-off event) and the intensity of the disturbance. Fucus serratus and Chondrus crispus are both intertidal species adapted to a degree of periodic desiccation. However, some epifaunal species have been reported to exhibit increased abundances on high fishing effort areas, probably due to their ability to colonize and grow rapidly (Bradshaw et al., 2000). Germlings are likely to be smothered and killed and will be the most intolerant stage of. Sea shore of Britain and northern Europe.

This scenario can reasonably be expected at low tide in summer in Britain, although the Fucus canopy is likely to protect the underlying red algae to some extent. Sensitivity assessment. London: HarperCollins. The biotope group is found in the lower intertidal, an area easily accessible by humans, especially at low tide. However Fucus serratus is found on all British and Irish coasts so there are few mechanisms isolating populations. If some Fucus serratus population remain recovery will be fairly rapid. Moore & R.

Pearson, G.A. Macroalgae are attached to the substratum by a holdfast and are thus not able to relocate in response to increased sedimentation. G.W. Isle of Man historical wildlife records 1995 to 1999. The Serratus Anterior is a muscle which stems from the top of the 8th or 9th upper rib and inserts into the front part of the shoulder blade. The loss of Fucus serratus canopy will have both short and long-term consequences for associated benthic communities, resulting in the loss of biogenic habitat, reduction in diversity, simplification of vertical structure and reduction or loss of ecosystem functioning such as primary productivity (Lilley & Schiel, 2006). Gili, J-M. & Hughes, R.G., 1995. Smothering by a 5 cm layer of sediment is unlikely to adversely affect this biotope given that it is associated with areas of moderately strong to very strong tidal flow. Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology, 31, 303-313. Decreases in water flow rate are unlikely to have any effect. & Fish, S., 1996. Malm et al. Feeding opportunity for suspension feeders will increase; desiccation and temperature stresses for all flora and fauna will decrease as will predation from birds. 65. Resistance and resilience are therefore both assessed as ‘High’ (no impacts to recover from). This biotope group is found in the intertidal and is therefore subjected to cyclical immersion and emersion. Robbins, I.J. Marine Ecology Progress Series, 93, 183-183. Schiel & Taylor (1999) also observed a decrease in understorey algae (erect and encrusting corallines) after 25 or more tramples, probably due to an indirect effect of increased desiccation as above. The biotope group is ‘Not Sensitive’ to a change in temperature at the pressure benchmark. & Schiel, D.R., 2012. Impacts of trampling on a rocky shoreline of San Juan Island, Washington, USA.

Strong tidal currents, characteristic of this biotope, encourage communities of sponges and ascidians. Physical factors driving intertidal macroalgae distribution: physiological stress of a dominant fucoid at its southern limit. Average annual expansion rates for Fucus serratus have been estimated at 0.3 to 0.6 km per year (Coyer et al., 2006; Brawley et al., 2009). Several studies observed adverse effects of Fucus serratus as a result to warm thermal stress in terms of growth, physiological performance and reproductive output in Spain and Portugal (Pearson et al., 2009; Viejo et al., 2011; Martínez et al., 2012). & Norton, T.A., 1978.

Like other rockweeds, they are conspicuously draped over rocks in clump-like clusters during low tides. Nutrient addition to experimental rocky shore communities revisited: delayed responses, rapid recovery. European Journal of Phycology, 41 (2), 235-246. Indeed loss of fucoids can cause systems shifts to a state dominated by low-lying turf or filamentous ephemeral algae (Airoldi et al., 2008; Mangialajo et al., 2008; Perkol-Finkel & Airoldi, 2010). 2.

(2013) observed Patella vulgata recruiting in bare patches of disturbed plots. However, a change of 0.1-0.2 m/s(the benchmark) is unlikely to adversely affect the biotope, although a reduction may decrease feeding and hence growth rates. As this pressure represents a permanent change, recovery is impossible as the suitable substratum for fucoids is lacking. Manx Biological Recording Partnership, 2018.

The commercial harvest removes seaweed canopies which will have important direct and indirect effects on the wider ecosystem. Egg release and settlement patterns of dioecious and hermaphroditic fucoid algae during the tidal cycle. Red algae can tolerate a wider range of light levels than any other group of photosynthetic plants (Kain & Norton, 1990) and will, therefore, be less affected by a reduction in water clarity. If the factor occurs when the tide is out and the alga is lying flat on the substratum then all the frond will be covered and photosynthesis prevented. Increases in water flow rate may cause some of the population to be torn off the substratum. Aquatic Conservation: Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems, 6, 287-297. Canopy-forming species mediate the effects of disturbance on macroalgal assemblages on Portuguese rocky shores. Once Fucus serratus has been removed, understorey algae will become exposed. (ed.)

Community effects following the deletion of a habitat-forming alga from rocky marine shores. The biology of rocky shores: Oxford University Press New York. In the UK, Boalch et al. Suspension feeders were the most affected by the canopy removal as canopy-forming algae are crucial habitats for these species, most of them being sessile organisms. This stimulation of annual ephemerals may accentuate the competition for light and space and hinder perennial species development or harm their recruitment (Kraufvelin et al., 2007). Guidelines for managing water quality impacts within UK European Marine sites. In addition, early life history stages will be more susceptible than adults (Henry & Van Alstyne, 2004).

The trampling of shores by humans will result in increased breakage of algal thalli, decreased thallus height and a net reduction in biomass (see Tyler-Walters & Arnold, 2005 for review). Resistance is thus assessed as ‘Medium’. European Journal of Phycology, 43 (3), 253-262. In Biology of the Red Algae, (ed. This means that the amount of food potentially available to the suspension feeders could increase but in the long-term, a sustained increase in nutrients could lead to algal blooms. A re-examination of the seaweeds on Colman's traverses at Wembury. As fucoids are out-competed in sublittoral conditions, it is likely that permanent shading would affect their growth and allow them to be out-competed by other, more shade tolerant species, within the affected area. Brosnan, D.M. The breadcrumb sponge Halichondria panicea has a mechanism for sloughing off its complete outer tissue layer together with any debris (Barthel & Wolfrath, 1989).
