|Abstract:||The uppermost infralittoral rocky shore macrophyte assemblage at Rinella Creek in the Grand Harbour, Malta was sampled in June 2002. Two days later, approximately 3.5 tonnes of oil were accidentally released at this site and the oil on the shore was cleaned up with steam. The site was visited 16 times over a period of 14 months to record the recolonization process. Multivariate community analysis showed that the community had recovered within a year from the incident.|
