Study: Algae Mats as Refuge for Animals in Mediterranean Sea

Marine ecosystems are changing due to climate change, including in the Mediterranean Sea. Red algae mats, which have been little studied to date, appear to play a special role as a refuge for many different animals there. The Department of Marine Ecology at the University of Bremen has now published surprising results in the renowned journal “Communications Biology”. They are based on the summarized findings of six bachelor theses written by biology bachelor students from the University of Bremen.
