Kelp

The Past and Future Ecologies of Australasian Kelp Forests

Australian and New Zealand researchers have joined forces to document their view of kelp forests. In this review published by Cambridge University Press, the team was able to use biogeographic perspective to synthesise the processes that create variation in the spatial extent and persistence of kelp forests in Australia and New Zealand (NZ). Due to evolution, […]
