Abstract

Seaweeds in the offshore waters of Isla Mujeres, in the western Caribbean Sea on the east coast of the Yucatán peninsula, were sampled using SCUBA. Three species of Cyanophyta, 90 Rhodophyta, 21 Ochrophyta and 41 Chlorophyta were identified. New records and earlier accounts of the shallow-water flora around the island indicate a rich flora of 400 taxa. Five localities around the island were sampled and each had a distinctive community of seaweeds. Over two-thirds (104) of the 155 taxa identified were present at only one of the five localities, and only one species was present in all five localities.

Keywords: biogeography; Caribbean Sea; ecology; Mexico; seaweeds
