Morphometric taxonomy of siphonous green algae: Halimeda beds form in the western or lee side of outer shield reefs where flow of nutrient-rich water from the open sea allows them to flourish, and are the most extensive, actively accumulating Halimeda beds in the world.

In fact some tropical reef systems, such as atollsconsist largely of Halimeda sand accumulated over the aeons. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Useful marine plants of the Asia-Pacific Region countries.
