Physiological ecology of the seagrass Zostera marina

Dennison WC ·
1984

The adaptive physiology of Zostera marina, L. (eelgrass) was investigated along a water depth gradient in order to assess the interactions of this prolific temperate seagrass with its environment. In situ and controlled-environment manipulations of light and sediment availability along with transplants beyond and within the eelgrass meadow were conducted.

Photosynthetic Responses of Zostera marina L (Eelgrass) to Insitu Manipulations of Light-Intensity

Dennison WC and Alberte RS ·
1982

Photosynthetic responses of the temperate seagrass, Zostera marina L., were examined by manipulations of photon flux density in an eelgrass bed in Great Harbor, Woods Hole, MA during August 1981. Sun reflectors and light shading screens were placed at shallow (1.3 m) and deep (5.5 m) stations in the eelgrass bed to increase (+35% to +40%) and decrease (-55%) ambient photon flux densities.
