Trophic transfers from seagrass meadows
This minireview published in Ecosystems is the latest publication from a synthesis effort at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS) in which IAN staff participated. The review found that seagrass ecosystems provide a large subsidy to both near and distant locations through the export of particulate organic matter as well as living plant and animal biomass. Therefore, the consequences of continuing seagrass decline extend far beyond the areas where seagrasses grow.

The Integration & Application Network is an initiative of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
