SEAWEEDS……..NEW YORK BOTANICAL GARDEN CLASS at Pelham Bay Park, August 5, 2014

My email for photos or data, etc. is:

We’re still identifying the seaweeds we found at Pelham Bay Park, but we know we found Sea-lettuce (Ulva lactuca), 2 species of bladderwrack (Fucus app.), Ceramium rubrum (the red seaweed that looks banded), Grinnellia americana (the red seaweed that looks like a pink to red sheet with compartments in it and dotted with conspicuous tiny spots, the red seaweed Agardhiella subulata, a filmy green seaweed that covered rocks and ledges (Ulva intestinalis)……

I hope we can plan another seaweed excursion for sometime this fall. Stay tuned.
