Description 
Summary

For monitoring purposes macro algae vegetation have been registered on seven marine stone reefs in 2-3 meters depth intervals in the Belt Sea and Kattegat, 1-3 times a year since 1989. The 'percent cover' of the vegetation is judged by divers; complete species lists are compiled by laboratory investigations of material sampled by divers and video registration is carried out on each location. Collaboration with The Botanical Museum, Copenhagen University (Ruth Nielsen).
