Epipelic algae live freely on sediment surfaces, epipsammic algae live attached to grains in sandy sediments. Both groups may be buried by wave action and. Epipelic algae perform a range of ecosystem functions including biostabilisation of sediments, regulation of benthic–pelagic nutrient cycling. The effects of contaminated bottom sediments on the species composition, growth cycles and diversity of epipelic algal communities were determined between.

We review these recent studies in combination with more classical freshwater approaches to highlight the importance of freshwater epipelic algal ecology and to aid discussions regarding future research.

There is a growing need to understand their ecological role in light of current and future alterations in sediment loading resulting from land-use change and land management practices. Rivers, Streams and Estuaries.
