Jayasankar, Reeta and Paliwal, Kailash (2002) Seasonal variation in the elemental composition of Gracilaria species of the Gulf of Mannar, Tamil Nadu coast. Seaweed Research and Utilisation, 24 (1). pp. 55-59.
Seasonal variation of the different cations such as Sodium (Na+) , Potassium (K+), Magnesium (Mg++), Calcium (Ca++) and Iron (Fe++) was analysed in three species of Gracilaria of Gulf of Mannar from August, 1994 to July, 1995. Significant interspecific variation in the elemental composition was observed. G.crassa showed higher concentration of Magnesium, Calcium and Iron whereas Sodium and Potassium dominated in G.edulis. Accumulation of cation content was high during March in G.crassa.
