Abstract

Seagrass are angiospermous plants adapted to grow in marine environment. Seagrass meadows are the nursery ground for many commercially important shrimps, crabs and fishes. Its root mat adds stability to the sediments of coastal zone and the leaves help filter the water of suspended particles. There are 13 genera and about 52 species of seagrass distributed throughout the world.
