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.

Four sites along the river were selected for sampling during wpipelic period from March to February Although the majority of recent eoipelic on epipelic algal ecology has been conducted within estuarine ecosystems, significant advances have also been made in freshwaters.

A summary of benthic algal groups is given with particular emphasis on substratum preference and habitat boundaries.
