Abstract

Posidonia oceanica (L.) Delile is one of the most abundant aquatic vascular higher plants in the Mediterranean Sea belonging to Posidoniaceas family. It is considered as a valuable natural source for multiple uses either for ecological functions or industrial applications. Nevertheless, this marine phanerogam is commonly confused with macroalgae, or seaweeds, known also as cryptogams. The present note intends to discuss the mis-use of the associated terminology of P. oceanica as algae in the scientific literature in order to avoid the widespread of this issue in the future. Thus, an extensive assessment of some important published woks has been conducted. This note will certainly allow the accurate nomenclature of this promising endemic species, which will continue its valorizations' ascension in several potential applications.
