Summary

Short-lived nuisance macroalgae are favoured by large supplies of nutrients. Together with macroalgal species numbers and dominance patterns, the cover of nuisance species is therefore used as an indicator of the state of macroalgae in coastal areas in the Danish Aquatic Monitoring and Assessment Programme.
