Seasonal change of marine plants of Oeyondo Island on the Yellow Sea was bimonthly investigated from January 1992 to December 1993. A total of 129 species (16 green, 26 brown, 79 red algae, and 5 grasses) of marine plants were identified in this study. The marine flora of Oeyondo Island seems to be much diverse than that of Muchangpo and Sapsido Island where is situated at the same latitude. Seventy-four species occurred on July, while 53-54 taxa in winter. Cluster analysis based on presence and absence of species showed that there were three marine floral seasons in Oeyondo; spring, summer and winter flora. Based on changes of plant length and reproductive organ of the sixteen species were grouped five seasonal patterns, that shows a similar tendency to the seasonal change of seawater temperature.
Key words: alga flora, Oeyondo, phenology, plant length, reproduction, Yellow Sea
