About the book

Seagrass species are densely represented by Posidonia oceanica, Cymodocea nodosa and Zostera noltii. Seagrass meadows are macroalgae that spread over a wide area around the world, are shaped in the form of roots, stems, and leaves at the bottom of the sea, and live by clinging to the seabed with their roots, and can produce their food by photosynthesis with the help of sunlight. In addition to being a source of oxygen and nutrients in the seas as a result of photosynthesis, they are important spawning areas for many fish species that lay their eggs on these plants.
The formation and development of seagrass meadows take many years. Among all the plant habitats in the world, the most carbon storage feature belongs to seagrass with 2000 tons/ha. Posidonia oceanica is the most important seagrass species for primary production and is endemic to the Mediterranean. This species is a perennial herb that spreads to a depth of 45 meters on the Mediterranean coast and can live up to 30 years. Their presence is indicative of clean seas.
