    The total ephemeral load was significantly higher on consolidated substrata than on large perennial algae, but we were unable to detect any systematic increase in the abundance of these ephemerals with increasing nutrient richness. We found, however, indications that the composition of the ephemeral assemblage changed with nutrient richness. Hence, corticated filamentous algae (mostly red algae) were more abundant at low nutrient richness while thin foliose algae (mainly green species) tended to become more abundant with increasing nutrient richness in most of the surveyed assemblages.
