    Eelgrass (Zostera marina) is a marine angiosperm (flowering plant) of great importance in the Northern plays important roles in sediment deposition, substrate stabilization, as substrate for epiphytic algae and microinvertebrates, and as nursery grounds for many species of economically important marine vertebrates and macroinvertebrates.   Study site. Waitemata Harbour, North Island, New Zealand (Fig. 1) is a large, well-mixed estuary in urban Auckland, covering an area of ~80 km 2,The estuary is 36% intertidal, with a .

    Eelgrass (Zostera marina) forms the foundation of an important shallow coastal community in protected estuaries and read population declines have stimulated restoration efforts, but these have often overlooked the importance of maintaining the evolutionary potential of restored populations by minimizing the reduction in genetic diversity that typically accompanies restoration. Sediment processes and healthy seagrass beds The sediment values we have measured in North Island estuaries fall within the range for seagrasses elsewhere in the world; in general, seagrasses tend to grow in sediments with an organic matter content of below 6%, redox potentials of mV or more, and moderate porewater.

Biomass and production of epiphytes on eelgrass (Zostera marina L.) . Genotypic structure and temporal dynamics of the dwarf seagrass, Zostera noltii, were studied in an intertidal meadow that has persisted since prior to near the Wadden Sea island of Sylt. Samples were collected from two 10 × 10 m plots separated by m from May to June and from four 1 × 1 m plots from June to September
