Abstract

Introduction The westem coasts of Greece show a particular variety of forms, owing to the calcareous composition of the rocky coast äs well äs the strong wave action and the various currents of the lonian Sea. So far, very little is known about and no systematic research has been done upon the marine flora on the Greek coasts of the lonian Sea. Sordina (1951) presents a list of marine algae of Corfu (Kerkyra) Island which he derived from the unpublished collection of Mazziari. Levring (1942) mentions in one of his studies the species Ulva rigida C. Ag., Bryopsis plumosa (Huds.) C* Ag,s Pterocladia capillacea (Gmel.) Born, et Thur. found on the coast near Patras. Further research work, not in the lonian but in the nearby Adriatic Sea and on the Italian coasts has been made periodically by Yugoslavian and Italian researchers (Ercegovic 1952, Giaccone 1969, Riedl 1970, Munda 1973, etc.). Earlier research upon the Greek marine flora in general is mentioned in the publications of Diannelidis (1950), Haritonidis and Tsekos (1974,1975), Tsekos and Haritonidis (1974) and Gerloff and Geissler (1974).
