|Abstract:||Species of Caulerpa form an important component, of the algal group of intertidal ecosystem. Morphological variations among 8 species of Caulerpa collected from Gujarat and Maharashtra coast were studied. The genus showed marked differences in morphological characters between species collected from different sites. C. taxifolia collected from Malvan recorded highest height of 272 mm. Crowded assimilators were observed in C. microphysa (5.89/2 cm stolon). The protected environment such as tide pools is found to be more conducive as larger specimens were collected from these areas; here reduced wave action allowed species to grow relatively larger.|
