This new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to provide a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of the biology and ecology of mangroves and seagrasses, using a global range of examples. Seagrasses are flowering plants (angiosperms) which grow in marine environments. There are 60 species of fully marine seagrasses which belong to four families (Posidoniaceae, Zosteraceae, Hydrocharitaceae and Cymodoceaceae), all in the order Alismatales (in the class of monocotyledons).

Seagrasses evolved from terrestrial plants which migrated back into the. A Guide to Southern Temperate Seagrasses describes the exceptionally diverse seagrasses in the temperate parts of the southern hemisphere.

This book introduces readers to the evolution, biology and ecology of the southern temperate seagrasses and presents a visual key to allow species identification using easily recognisable features. You can write a book review and share your experiences. Other readers will always be interested in your opinion of the books you've read.

This book, now in its third edition and fully updated throughout, continues to provide a current and comprehensive introduction to all aspects of the biology and ecology of mangroves and seagrasses.

(source: Nielsen Book Data) Seagrasses are a common feature of inshore coastal waters of all continents except Antarctica. This book, the first to attempt a comprehensive coverage of seagrasses, will attract a wide audience including botanists, zoologists, geologists, and experts in fisheries and coastal management.

Seagrass meadows are ecologically and economically important components of many coastal areas worldwide. Ecosystem services provided by seagrasses include reducing the number of microbial pathogens in the water, providing food, shelter and nurseries for many species, and decreasing the impact of waves on the shorelines.

A global assessment reported that 29% of Cited by: Seagrasses are a group of flowering plants that have evolved a unique set of characteristics to live, grow, and reproduce in marine underwater habitats (Les et al., ), with key ecosystem services that they provide to coastal areas of the world (Costanza et al., ).Well-written books that emphasize the ecology of specific wetland types include Hogarth on the biology of mangroves and seagrasses, Rydin and Jeglum on the biology of peatlands, and Richardson on how the alteration of the hydrology and nutrient additions affect the ecology and restoration of the subtropical Everglades peatlands.
