Yeasts and yeast-like fungi participate in a range of ecologically significant processes in the sea, especially in estuarine and near-shore localities. Among such activities are decomposition of plant substrates, nutrient recycling phenomena, biodegradation of oil and recalcitrant compounds, and parasitism of marine animals. Biomass data and repeated observations of microhabitat colonizations by various marine occurring yeasts support ancillary laboratory evidence for the contribution of this segment of the marine mycota to productivity and transformation activities in the sea.
