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.
