Abstract

The annotated list of seaweeds in the vicinity of Marine biological station of St. Petersburg State University includes 79 species. Taxonomic position of species, ecological characteristics, locations and abundance are given. The brown and red algae predominate in the list of species: about 40 % per each group. The rest species (approximately 22 %) are green algae. This ratio is characteristic for seas of Arctic-Temporal zone. Each group demonstrates high taxonomic diversity. The green algae include 3 classes, 4 orders, 11 genera and 17 species. The red algae include 2 classes, 8 orders, 26 genera and 31 species. The brown algae include 7 orders, 24 genera and 31 species.
