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.

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