Abstract

In the present paper, the results of the new study on the benthic marine flora of the Marmara Sea (Turkey) are reported. Sampling was made from 25 different localities of the Marmara Sea from 2015 to 2017 by snorkerling and SCUBA diving. In total, 320 marine algal and four seagrass taxa at specific and infraspecific levels were found, seven of which are newly reported from Turkey, and 17 taxa are reported as alien in the Marmara Sea.

Keywords: Algae, alien species, marine flora, Marmara Sea, Turkey
