The common link in the three regional seagrass books has been Michelle Waycott. This finding is important for seagrass-fisheries management. Mail will not be published required.

Letter to the Editor. My dream would be to have this fourth and final regional seagrass book completed and then all four regional books combined into a single eBook or print copy that would be readily available globally and permanently.

Taken together, these three regional seagrass books encompass about three quarters of the globe. Michelle is an evolutionary biologist who uses a variety of molecular techniques to investigate seagrasses.

Material for this study was collected in three seagrass beds with different structure in Inner Ambon Bay, Eastern Indonesia. Guadalupe Barba SantosJ. Thus, Michelle has had direct personal and professional experiences that have given her the opportunity to learn about the seagrasses in these diverse regions. However statistical verification of such a relationship is saegrass only in areas with high species richness of seagrass and fish assemblages which is observed in tropical waters.


The book includes succinct descriptions of the different seagrass plant families and provides user friendly keys to the different species.

Professor den Hartog is a spritely Dutch botanist, now in his 80s, seagrwss also was the founding editor of the journal Aquatic Botany in North Holland Publishing Co. This study provided evidence that higher structural complexity of seagrass bed was related to the higher richness, abundance, and hartpg of fish.

Structural complexity of seagrass bed including species composition and shoot density is argued to be an important factor determining fish assemblages. Notify me of new posts by email. Learning Science — Tags: Open Journal of EcologyVol.

Michelle studied the southern temperate seagrasses during her undergraduate and graduate studies at the University of Western Australia. However, lower structural complexity of seagrass patch should not saegrass underestimated because it provided different habitat for various stages of life in fish.

Smaller fish preferred to occupy dense seagrass of dominant pioneer small-sized species Halodule uninervis and moved to the lesser dense bed of climax large-sized seagrass Thalassia hemprichii and Enhalus acoroides with increasing their size.

The species descriptions are informed by the latest genetic evidence, a far better way to classify species and relatedness than leaf tip morphology or other arbitrary characteristics.

The Oldest Globular World Map: Seagrass research would greatly benefit from having seagras single, definitive guide to the species of these beautiful underwater flowering plants. Along with many of my cohort and succeeding seagrass researchers, I resorted to photocopying the entire book. This beautifully illustrated 72 pp.
