AbstractGiant kelp forests are marine communities dominated by the large brown alga Macrocystis pyrifera. Stands of this species occur along the outer coast of the E Pacific from near Santa Cruz in central California to the central coast of Baja California, Mexico. Plants are usually attached to rocky substrata at depths of 5-20m. These submarine forests are probably the most species-rich, structural complex and productive communities in temperate waters.
