Formatted abstract An investigation was made into the phanerogamic and algal vegetation of tidal marshes in south-eastern Queensland. A generalized zonation pattern of phanerogamic vegetation for this region has been formulated.

Culture techniques were used to isolate a total of seven species of terrestrial Chlorophyta and thirty-four species of Cyanophyta from salt marsh soils. (Diatoms were not included in this survey.) Of these, three species of Chlorophyta and sixteen species of Cyanophyta are new records for Queensland.

The floristic composition of algal vegetation in the marshes examined showed marked similarities. Species of blue-green algae were found not to show any marked correlation with particular vegetation zones, in agreement with the work of Stewart and Pugh (1963).

Soil characters i.e. pH, % chloride, % organic content, % shell and carbonate content, and water content were investigated for the zone of active algal growth, and these have been related to the distribution of algal species across the marsh.
