Abstract

Abstract This fürst pari of an annotated list of marine algae in Tanzania deals with red algae of the Orders Rhodymeniales and Ceramiales. The study is based on coüections brought together by the author during a 4 years stay in Tanzania 1966-70. The analysis has indicated a closer relationsship between the algal Vegetation in Tanzania and the eastern part of the Indian Ocean (the Malay Archipelago of Weber van Bosse, Japan and eastern Australia) than between the Vegetation in Tanzania and South Africa. This is the first part (of four) of an annotated list of marine algae in Tanzania. The account is based on collections made by the author from 1966 till 1970. In the previous reports in this series some genera have been broken out and discussed separately: Giffordia, Sphacelaria, Dictyota, Ceramium and Laurencia. Our knowledge of the algal Vegetation of the East African shores has been fragmentary to say the least, based äs it had to be on some incomplete reports from temporaiy visits to the area.
