Why is it important?

This is the first report on distribution patterns of Sargassum species along the long coast of Vietnam. Our study provides baseline data for evaluating ecological disturbance and risks of Sargassum-associated ecosystems.


This is the first report on the distributional range of Sargassum species from Vietnam, revealing a latitudinal trend in species range. Continuous monitoring of species, especially endemic ones as well as Sargassum beds is urgently needed to detect ecological disturbance and risks for marine ecosystems along the coast of Vietnam.
