Berov, B., Deyanova, D., Georgieva, I., Gyosheva, B. & Hiebaum, G. (2012). Cystoseira sp.-dominated macroalgal communities in the SW Black sea (Burgas Bay, Bulgaria). Current state and possible long-term effects of eutrophication. Comptes Rendus de l'Académie Bulgare des Sciences 65: 821-830.
The present state of Cystoseira communities and the impact of increased eutrophication in the 1980s on their diversity and distribution in the Burgas Bay were investigated. The detected increase in nutrient loads was parallelled by a gradual change in community structure and loss of biodiversity. The current species diversity was similar to that in the pre-eutrophication period in the early 1980s, but with a significant decrease in the depth of occurrence of the studied communities.
