AlgaeBase is a database of information on algae that includes terrestrial, marine and freshwater organisms.
At present, the data for the marine algae, particularly seaweeds, are the most complete. For convenience, we have included the sea-grasses, even though they are flowering plants.
Currently it holds:
- 134,013 species and infraspecific names,
- 16,545 images,
- 49,457 bibliographic items,
- 220,916 distributional records.
