Marine Biology is used by undergraduate, graduate, high school, and adult-education students, as well as by interested laypersons not enrolled in formal courses. And because Australia has such an abundance and variety of seagrasses, their role in blue carbon production and turnover is of great importance. The current estuarine land cover bears no resemblance to the historic estuarine land cover. Seagrass beds or meadows are marine communities comprising seagrass species that provide habitat for many other organisms.

Marine ecology. Seagrass depth limits. This is a preview of subscription content, log in to check access. Furthermore, because seagrasses are underwater plants, they produce significant amounts of oxygen which oxygenate the water column. The design of the current book follows in the steps of the first book. Seagrasses also anchor sediments and thus provide

A final theme that, unfortunately, becomes more relevant with each passing year is the impact of humans on the marine environment. Seagrasses, a group of about sixty species of underwater marine flowering plants, grow in the shallow marine and estuary environments of all the world's continents except Antarctica.

Aquatic Botany, 27, 41— A final chapter, new to this edition, examines the potential effects of global climate change including sea level rise. Using a global range of examples and case studies, it describes the unique adaptations of these plants to their exacting environments; the rich and diverse communities of organisms that depend on mangrove forests and seagrass meadows including tree-climbing shrimps, synchronously flashing fireflies, and 'gardening' seacows ; the links between mangrove, seagrass, and other habitats; and the evolution, biodiversity, and biogeography of mangroves and seagrasses.

Larkum, A. As salt-water plants, they influence the physical, chemical, and geological processes affecting coastal environments in which they live by filtering waters and dissipating wave energy.

And because Australia has such an abundance and variety of seagrasses, their role in blue carbon production and turnover is of great importance.
