Light intensity and the interactions between physiology, morphology and stable isotope ratios in five species of seagrass

Grice AM, Loneragan NR, and Dennison WC ·
1996

The effects of light intensity on stable isotope ratios, physiology and morphology of five seagrass species were investigated in an outdoor, light controlled experiment. Seagrasses were maintained in flowing seawater aquaria, with each seagrass species exposed to different light regimes (5, 15, 20, 30, 50, and 100% full sunlight) using shade screens.

Effects of ultraviolet and photosynthetically active radiation on five seagrass species

Dawson SP and Dennison WC ·
1996

Five seagrass species [Halophila ovalis (R.Br) Hook. f., Halodule uninervis (Forsk.) Aschers., Zostera capricorni Aschers., Cymodocea serrulata (R.Br) Aschers. (ed.) and Syringodium isoetifolium (Aschers.) Dandy] from Moreton Bay, Australia, were grown under increased (+25%) and ambient levels of ultraviolet (UV) radiation and photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), and various morphological and physiological responses were examined.

Toward a national agenda for research in the coastal zone: Where are we?

Malone TC and Nemazie DA ·
1996

In response to the complex challenges of understanding and managing the effects of human activities on coastal ecosystems, the research establishment has produced a plethora of reports and implemented a bewildering array of government-sponsored research and monitoring programs that are not cost-effective on regional or national scales.

Tissue nutrient content of Gracilaria spp (Rhodophyta) and water quality along an estuarine gradient (Page 1)

Tissue nutrient content of Gracilaria spp (Rhodophyta) and water quality along an estuarine gradient

Horrocks JL, Stewart GR, and Dennison WC ·
1995

Tissue nutrient content of Gracilaria spp. (Rhodophyta) was tested as a bioindicator of water column nutrient availability in the Logan River and southern Moreton Bay, south-eastern Queensland. Macroalgae were incubated for one to two weeks within flow-through incubation chambers suspended in the water column. Tissue nutrient content of Gracilaria spp, and water column nutrients were measured at five sites over a five-month period.
