Long-term alterations in Laspy Bay Cystoseira phytocenosis (southern coast of Crimea) were evaluated by multivariate statistical methods. Key morpho-functional indicators for species from diverse tiers and epiphytic synusia were analyzed. The recreational succession in open littoral Cystoseira phytocenosis (1-3 m) was revealed, whereas their degradation was typical for deeper areas. It was determined that the greater the level of anthropogenic eutrophy, the lower the contribution of upper tier species and the larger the role of lower tier algae and epiphytic synusia in structural-functional organization of Cystoseira phytocenosis.
