About this book

Presents a set of detailed, globally applicable techniques for seagrass research. The book provides methods for all aspects of seagrass science from basic plant collection to statistical approaches and investigations of plant-animal interaction. The emphasis is on methods that are applicable in both developing and developed countries.


Part I Status of Seagrass: Global seagrass distribution, (F.T. Short, R.G. Coles, C. Pergent-Martini); Seagrass taxonomy and identification key, (J. Kuo, C. den Hartog); Reproduction and phenology in seagrasses, (D.I. Walker, B. Olesen, R.C. Phillips). Part II Seagrass Research Methods: Standards for seagrass collection, identification and sample design, (D.M. Burdick, G.A. Kendrick); Methods for mapping seagrass distribution, (L.J. McKenzie, M.A. Finkbeiner, H. Kirkman); Methods for assessing seagrass seed ecology and population genetics, (G.J. Inglis, M. Waycott); Methods for the measurement of seagrass abundance and depth distribution, (C.M. Duarte, H. Kirkman); Methods for the measurement of seagrass growth and production, (F.T. Short, C.M. Duarte); Measurements of photosynthetic rates in seagrasses, (S. Beer, M. Bjork, R. Gademann, P. Ralph); Assessing biomass, assemblage structure and productivity of algal epiphytes on seagrasses, (G.A. Kendrick, P.S. Lavery); Methods to measure macroalgal biomass and abundance in seagrass meadows, (B. Japar Sidik, S.O. Bandeira, N.A. Milchakova); Techniques for quantitative sampling of infauna and epifauna in seagrass, (A. Raz-Guzman, R.E. Grizzle); Fish, crabs, shrimps and other large mobile epibenthos - measurement methods for their biomass and abundance in seagrass, (G.J. Edgar, H. Mukai, R.J. Orth); Measuring invertebrate grazing on seagrasses and epiphytes, (V. Zupo, W.G. Nelson, M.C. Gambi); Methods for assessing the grazing effects of large herbivores on seagrasses, (C. Supanwanid, J.O. Albertsen, H. Mukai); Seagrass decomposition (D.I. Walker, G. Pergent, S. Fazi); Measurements of physical parameters in seagrass habitats, (E.W. Koch, J.J. Verduin); Sediment geology methods for seagrass habitat, (P.L.A. Erftemeijer, E.W. Koch); Measurement of light penetration in relation to seagrass, (T.J.B. Carruthers, B.J. Longstaff, W.C. Dennison, E.G. Abal, K. Aioi); Water quality measurement methods for seagrass habitat, (S. Granger, H. Iizumi).

P.H. Nienhuis ...The book is nevertheless the best we have on seagrass research methods, and therefore indispensable for everyone working with seagrasses. Aquaculture
