The algae of western Lake Erie have been extensively studied for more than 70 years, but, until the present study by the author, conducted between April and October, 1967, almost nothing was known of the shoreline as a specific algal habitat. A total of 61 taxa were identified from the shorelines. The importance of this habitat is very clear from the results of this study, for, of the 61 taxa found, 39 are new records for western Lake Erie, and one, Arnoldiella conchophila Miller, appears to be a new United States record, having been previously reported only from central Russia.
