INTRODUCTION
The Baltic is a semi-enclosed sea, with a gradient of
decreasing salinity, and with only narrow connections
to the North Sea. The brackish and essentially non-
tidal nature of the Baltic is of great interest and poten-
tial importance for studies of recent evolutionary
change in the quite limited numbers of marine species
able to exist there. The marine flora of the Baltic was
probably recruited at the beginning of the Littorina
Sea period (ca 7500 before present, BP), when the con-
nection between the Baltic and the Atlantic was wider,
and has been experiencing a progressive decline in
Inter-Research 2000
