Seagrass Ecosystems

Hi,

Seagrass beds are amazing places. I would include some other topics such as:

  • What organisms are found in seagrass beds
  • What is (are) the evolutionary histories of seagrass? How did an angiosperm end up in the ocean? How does a seagrass reproduce?
  • What animals eat seagrass?
  • Are seagrasses susceptible to any marine diseases?

    Some WWW sources:

  • http://www.fiu.edu/~seagrass/
  • http://everglades.fiu.edu/dineen/97703.html

    Lots of great stuff to think about!

    Best regards,
    Hays
