Summary

This QR project produced an annual report. Submersed aquatic vegetation (SAV) communities are highly productive ecosystems that provide significant ecological benefits within coastal areas, including support for many important species of fish and wildlife. Despite their critical importance, and loss globally, we lack consistent baseline data on SAV resources across the coastal salinity gradient. This project is part of a larger funded effort which has the overall objectives to document the occurrence and abundance of SAV resources (e.g., coverage, composition, seed resources) within the northern Gulf of Mexico over three years, to quantitatively assess environmental factors affecting SAV spatial and temporal variation, and to develop [...]
