Using eDNA to determine the source of organic carbon in seagrass meadows
Seagrasses sequester globally significant amounts of carbon (C), which is stored mainly in the sediment. BothC fixation by the seagrass (autochthonous) and the trapping of organic matter that is derived from outside ...
Cambios en la cobertura de manglares en Bahía Culebra, Pacífico Norte de Costa Rica (1945-2010)
Changes in mangrove coverage in Culebra Bay, North Pacific of Costa Rica (1945-2010)
Los manglares tienen gran importancia ecológica, económica, riqueza natural y prestan servicios ambientales. No obstante, son amenazados por la sobreexplotación, la contaminación y el cambio de uso de suelo. Costa Rica ...
Intra- and inter-annual variation in a seagrass meadow on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica: 2009-2015
Variación intra e inter anual en una pradera de pastos marinos en la costa caribeña de Costa Rica: 2009-2015
Seagrass beds are an important ecosystem on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. At Cahuita National Park (CNP) a seagrass bed at Perezoso has been monitored continually since 1999 within the CARICOMP program. Thalassia ...
Caribbean-Wide, Long-Term Study of Seagrass Beds Reveals Local Variations, Shifts in Community Structure and Occasional Collapse
The CARICOMP monitoring network gathered standardized data from 52 seagrass sampling stations at 22 sites (mostly Thalassia testudinum-dominated beds in reef systems) across the Wider Caribbean twice a year over the period ...
Seagrass morphometrics at species level in Moreton Bay, Australia from 2012 to 2013
Seagrass above, below and total biomass, density and leaf area, length and width were quantified at a species level for 122 sites over three sampling periods in Moreton Bay, Australia. Core samples were collected in two ...
Seasonal phenology of Sargassum liebmannii J. Agardh (Fucales, Heterokontophyta) in an upwelling area of the Eastern Tropical Pacific
Seasonal changes in growth, biomass, abundance and reproduction of brown algae have been reported from subtropical and temperate regions, but there are very few reports from tropical regions, and none from the Eastern ...
Vertical accretion and carbon burial rates in subtropical seagrass meadows increased following anthropogenic pressure from European colonisation
Seagrass meadows serve as marine carbon sinks, though rates of carbon burial and sediment accretion may vary within and among seagrass meadows due to spatial and temporal variability in sedimentary and biophysical conditions. ...
