LIGHT REQUIREMENTS OF SEAGRASSES ALONG THE WEST COAST OF PENINSULAR FLORIDA
Why This Research is Important
Seagrasses are an important habitat for numerous marine animals. They are currently declining in number and eutrophication is shown to be one of the main causes. Due to the shading of these plants and their need for light to survive, knowing seagrass light requirements is pertinent in saving an important habitat in our marine system.
