Zusammenfassung

Although the largest diversity of Ulvophyceae is found in marine habitats, a substantial number of species may be found over a broad salinity range, and occur in brackish to freshwater and semi-terrestrial habitats. For example, some marine Ulva and Blidingia species are able to penetrate into freshwater habitats (Messyasz & Rybak 2011). Other ulvophyte species or genera are entirely confined to brackish (marshes, and estuaries), freshwater, damp terrestrial, or aeroterrestrial habitats.
