Poor water quality and light reduction owing to anthropogenic impacts are the most widespread causes behind marine submerged angiosperm (seagrass) declines, worldwide. Seagrasses could respond to sustained environmental stresses, such as increasing water depth and light reduction, through morphological changes, particularly shoot density and/or biomass reductions. The seagrass Zostera japonica Asch. Read More
