However, there was little evidence for translocation of any other characteristic species over significant geographic distances. At Psammichinus miliaris southern range edge, Morocco and the Azores (Mortensen, 1927), winter-summer temperatures range from17-21°C (Seatemperature, 2015). If unable to 'dig out' of the sediment, deposited sediment may cause mortality. Gezelius (1962) reported the littoral growth form had an optimal salinity range of 20-32 ppt, whereas the sub-littoral growth form 26-38ppt. Psammechinus miliaris can reach sexual maturity within the first year, reproduce each successive year, (Elmhirst, 1922) and are reported to live up 10 years (Allain, 1978). At the time of writing, little is known about the effects of heavy metals on echinoderms. The experiment was conducted on Saccharina latissima from the Arctic, and at extremely low water temperatures (1-5 °C) macroalgae acclimation to rapid salinity changes could be slower than at temperate latitudes. … Codium fragile thalli also attained greater sizes (>14 cm) were more branched and had higher biomass on the sheltered faces of the breakwater. growth or directly affect Saccharina latissima. along some environmental and geographical gradients. While some extraction of Psammechinus miliaris may conceivably develop for roe-enhancement through feeding artificial or nutrient enriched diets (Dr Maeve Kelly pers comm, 2000), this is currently not in practice within the UK. The evidence suggests that enrichment would not negatively impact on Codium spp. Farrell & Fletcher (2006) suggested that native short lived species that occupy similar ecological niches to Undaria pinnatifida, such as Saccharina latissima, are likely to be worst affected and out-competed by Undaria pinnatifida.

Johnston & Roberts (2009) conducted a meta-analysis, which reviewed 216 papers to assess how a variety of contaminants (including sewage and nutrient loading) affected 6 marine habitats (including subtidal reefs). thalli reduce to a small holdfast and biological activity is reduced (Haniask, 1979). Wave exposure is one of the principal defining features of rock biotopes, and large changes in wave exposure are likely to alter the relative abundance of the dominant macro-algae, grazing and understorey community, and hence, the biotope. In prolonged events, subtidal Psammechinus miliaris would presumably react in a similar … Marine Strategy Framework Directive Indicators for UK Kelp Habitats Part 1: Developing proposals for potential indicators. The feeding plasticity of Psammechinus miliaris is likely to ameliorate some of the effects of diminished kelp growth as a result of decreased light availability, however, a decrease in Saccharina latissima may cause some declines in Psammechinus miliaris abundance. Environmental parameters controlling gametogenesis in the echinoid Psammechinus miliaris. alterations of the blade and stipe ranging from dark spots to heavy deformations and completely crippled thalli (Peters & Scaffelke, 1996). Seasearch Guide to Seaweeds of Britain and Ireland. An ecological survey of the rocky coast adjacent to the effluent of a bromine extraction plant. Growth allocation in Laminaria hyperborea (Laminariales, Phaeophyceae) in relation to age and wave exposure. Therefore, during summer when thalli are erect light deposition of sediment is unlikely to inundate thalli, however if sediment is deposited during winter when the thalli are fragmented and reduced to the holdfast (Haniask, 1979) then Codium spp. A preliminary assessment of the immediate effects of beam trawling on a benthic community in the Irish Sea. Johnston & Roberts (2009)  also highlighted that macroalgal communities are relatively tolerant to contamination, but that contaminated communities can have low diversity assemblages which are dominated by opportunistic and fast growing species (Johnston & Roberts, 2009 and references therein). An investigation of dispersal of the introduced brown alga Undaria pinnatifida (Harvey) Suringar and its competition with some species on the man-made structures of Torquay Marina (Devon, UK). Bedrock and boulders provide a firm substrate on which ascidians Ciona intestinalis and Ascidia mentula and the bivalve Modiolus modiolus can attach. Andersen et al. (UK Marine SACs Project, vol V.). Furthermore temperature was found to control the time at which Phyllophora pseudoceranoides begins sporulation. Saccharina latissima may be infected by the microscopic brown alga Streblonema aecidioides. Read et al. M.J. Kaiser & S.J de Groot), 49-68. A decrease in turbidity is likely to support enhanced growth (and possible habitat expansion) and is therefore not considered in this assessment. This phenomenon is known as heterotrichy or heteromorphy and describes cases where the algal thallus consists of two parts; a prostrate creeping system exhibiting apical growth and functioning as a holdfast. Karsten (2007) tested the photosynthetic ability of Saccharina latissima under acute 2 and 5 day exposure to salinity treatments ranging from 5-60 psu.

During winter, thalli fragment and individuals are reduced to a holdfast. In Marine Benthic Vegetation. Resistance has therefore been assessed as ‘Medium’, resilience as ‘High’. Saccharina latissima has shown significant regional acclimation to environmental conditions. Resistance has been assessed as ‘Medium’, and resilience as ‘High’. … Gerard, V.A. Psammechinus miliaris is quite small (typically up to 4 cm) and is likely to be inundated by 5 cm of sediment (Jackson, 2008). Ecology and Evolution, 4 (13), 2787-2798. Scottish sea lochs, and its distribution frequently coincides with that of Saccharina latissima (Kelly, 2000). Psammechinus miliaris must be able to tolerate low oxygen conditions provided the event is brief. Depending on the level of impact, recovery of the turf may occur through repair and regrowth of damaged fronds, regrowth from crustose bases or via recolonization of rock surfaces where all the plant material is removed. Gerard & Dubois (1988) found Saccharina latissima sporophytes which were regularly exposed to ≥20 °C could tolerate these high temperatures whereas sporophytes from other populations which rarely experience ≥17 °C showed 100 % mortality after 3 weeks of exposure to 20 °C.

Oceanography and Marine Biology: An Annual Review, 41,161-236. At the extremes of Codium fragile temperature tolerance (6 & 30°C) salinity tolerances were restricted, thalli grown at 6°C had a tolerance of 18-36 ‰, and thalli grown at 30 °C had a salinity tolerance of 18-48 ‰ (Haniask, 1979). Bolton & Lüning (1982) experimentally observed that sporophyte growth was inhibited by 50-70% at 20°C and following 7 days at 23°C all specimens completely disintegrated. Schäfer & Köhler (2009) found 20 day exposure to sub-lethal concentrations of phenanthrene resulted in severe ovarian lesions of Psammechinus miliaris limiting the production of gametes.

Therefore, a large scale increase in wave exposure is likely to have a fundamental effect on the characterizing species. Habitat: A typical species of bouldery sheltered shores, occasionally found sublittorally in shallow water in sheltered or slightly brackish sites such as sea lochs. K.M. It was observed that the substratum was initially colonized by filamentous macroalgae and within 2 weeks Saccharina latissima colonized and persisted for 2 years. The grazing fauna are a significant component of this biotope; large numbers of Psammechinus miliaris are typically present, although where absent the brittlestar Ophiothrix fragilis may occur. Reduced oxygen levels are likely to inhibit photosynthesis and respiration but not cause a loss of the macroalgae population directly. In Marine Ecology: A Comprehensive, Integrated Treatise on Life in the Oceans and Coastal Waters, vol. [UK Marine SACs Project. Habitat: A typical species of bouldery … Light penetration influences the maximum depth at which kelp species can grow and it has been reported that laminarians grow at depths at which the light levels are reduced to 1 percent of incident light at the surface. Terrestrial Map - 10km London: Hodder & Stoughton Ltd. Mortensen, T.H., 1927. Hydrocarbons in solution reduce photosynthesis and may be algicidal. Depending on food availability, planktonic larvae will then typically settle out within 20-21 days. Journal of Phycology 15, 124-127.

Sublittoral sand and gravel habitats occur in a wide variety of environments, from sheltered (sea lochs, enclosed bays and estuaries) to highly exposed conditions (open coast). It is particularly common in the North Sea. Where resistance is assessed as ‘Medium’ (loss of <25 % of individuals or cover) and the bases remain then recovery is assessed as ‘High’. Given the short life expectancy of Saccharina latissima (2-4 years-(Parke, 1948)), IR.LIR.KVS.SlatPhyVS is likely to be dependent on annual Saccharina latissima recruitment (Moy & Christie, 2012). Pollution and marine life. Mortensen (1927) reported Psammechinus miliaris was found in Limfjorden, Denmark where winter water temperatures are regularly just above 0°C (Ursin, 1960). Growth in Laminaria saccharina (L.) Lamour. thalli will become inundated. tomentosoides on New Zealand rocky shores: current distribution and invertebrate grazers. To represent the potential decline in Saccharina latissima resistance to this pressure has been defined as ‘Medium’ and resilience to this pressure is defined as ‘High’ at the benchmark level due to the scale of the impact.
