Seagrass in Reproduction
Key ecosystems
Phanerogamae form seagrass fields, which play a key role in the Mediterranean ecosystem. They are the home for a range of species, help keep the water clean, cushion surges and reduce beach erosion. However, activities such as anchoring boats, coastal infrastructure and pollution are reducing seagrass fields in many areas.
Scientific framework
The distribution of phanerogamae, their conservation and the pressure they are suffering, including climate change, has been researched for many years. In order to effectively manage these habitats, it is essential to have a broader view of their sexual reproduction and dispersion capacity.
How to get involved
On the beach or in the water, if you can find flowers or fruit of any of the phanerogamae species, fragments of rarer species or a noteworthy impact affecting seagrass fields, take photos to provide evidence and report what you have observed.
