Studies on the seaweeds of Andaman and Nicobar Group of Islands

Muthuvelan, B (1994) Studies on the seaweeds of Andaman and Nicobar Group of Islands. PhD thesis, Cochin University of Science and Technology.



The importance of marine algae, often referred to as seaweeds, has been felt over a long time and is appreciated more and more in modern times. The economic value of marine algae is understood both indirectly and directly. The indirect benefit is due to the role of ma rine phytoplankton as well as the benthic macrophyte biomass along the shore and in the continental shelf, in primary production of the sea. Direct benefit includes the use of ma rine algae as food, feed, fertilizer and as source of various products of commercial importance such as agar and alginic acid.
