Distribution

Phaeophyceae can dominate the rocky subtidal and intertidal of temperate regions, where, though the species diversity is lower than that of the red algae, their numbers are much higher. The “Sargasso Sea” is the only area in warm waters where Phaeophyceae is abundant – as large “rafts” of floating Sargassum. (Lee, 1999).
