Ecological assessment and monitoring of seagrass habitat


Despite their importance as habitats having high ecological and economic values, seagrass beds are drastically declining as a result of anthropogenic and natural pressures. Fragmentation of seagrass beds and other adverse disturbance effects resulting from eutrophication, poor water quality and climate change are leading to loss of the habitat worldwide, especially in developed regions such as Europe where coastal development and use are intense. It is therefore crucial to increase awareness of the ecosystem services provided by seagrasses and obtain an understanding of the processes that result in alterations to seagrass ecosystem functioning.
