Brown seaweeds AIDGAP
Brown seaweeds AIDGAP is designed to allow non-specialists to identify the majority of British macroscopic brown seaweeds from living specimens on the shore, where this is possible without a microscope.
The author has included littoral, sublittoral and rare species. Numerous thumbnail drawings appear in the keys to help ease-of-use. All seaweeds are fully illustrated. Introductory text describes the ecology of brown seaweeds will help with interpreting patterns of distribution on the seashore.
This Brown seaweeds guide is part of the FSC’s AIDGAP series (Aids to Identification in Difficult Groups of Animals and Plants). Our AIDGAP guides are accessible identification keys, suitable for non-specialists from age 16+. Since 1976 the project has produced over 40 keys to many different groups.
