SEAWEEDAFRICA Report Summary

Project ID: ICA4-CT-2001-10030
Funded under: FP5-INCO 2
Country: South Africa

Seaweed checklists were produced from a number of African countries including: South Africa, Kenya and Namibia

Check-Lists for the seaweeds found in Namibia, Kenya and South Africa have been produced. The latter two of which have never created and the former has been updated. This information required for this work is the result of years of data encoding into AlgaeBase where numerous floras and papers have been entered. Along with a list of species the Check-Lists provide a background to the country and its coastal environment. These Check-Lists are very useful to the scientific community and of paramount importance to potential seaweed research in these countries and beyond.
