Fucus spiralis acts as an ecosystem engineer in the biotope. Distribution. Fucus species, along with other kelp, are an important source of alginates—colloidal extracts with many industrial uses similar to those of agar. It has the common names of spiral wrack and flat wrack. Knotted wrack and bladder wrack are found in the mid-intertidal zone, and spiral wrack is found in the upper intertidal zone. KNNV Uitgeverij: Utrecht, The Netherlands. It is common on the mid shore often with Ascophyllum nodosum, below Fucus spiralis and in a zone further up the shore from Fucus serratus. When the two are found growing in the same area F. spiralis is normally above F. distichus. Fucus, genus of brown algae, common on rocky seacoasts and in salt marshes of northern temperate regions. Fucus gardneri along with Fucus spiralis, Fucus vesiculosis and others of the same Fucus family, are represented in northern hemispheric waters. The serrated wrack Fucus serratus is the fucoid least able to tolerate water loss and hence is found at the lowest point of the fucoid zone. It grows very well in rocky areas as they do not have roots but a … In areas of extreme shelter, such as in Scottish sea lochs, the P. canaliculata and F. spiralis zones often merge together forming a very narrow band.
