Abstract: In a survey of the inshore benthic macroflora of St Francis Isles in June 1992, the spatial patterns in composition and biomass of canopy and understory algae, and seagrasses, were examined, and compared with two other surveys in 1971 and 2002 of the Isles. The macroalgal zonation at St Francis I, was dominated by the fucoids. Scytothalia dorycarpa, Sargassum verruculosum and Cystophora platylobium, with other canopy taxa including Ecklonia radiata, Cystophora monilifera, and other species of Cystophora and Sargassum.
Keywords: Macroalgae; subtidal survey; St Francis Isles; southern Australia; temperate macroalgal distribution patterns; offshore islands.
