Scientific Research An Academic Publisher. Learning Science — Tags: Along with many of my cohort and succeeding seagrass researchers, I resorted to photocopying the entire book. The common link in the three regional seagrass books has been Michelle Seagdass.

Professor den Hartog is a spritely Dutch botanist, now in his 80s, who also was the founding editor of the journal Aquatic Botany in RSS feed for comments on this post. Smaller fish preferred to occupy dense seagrass of dominant pioneer small-sized species Halodule uninervis and moved to the lesser dense bed of climax large-sized seagrass Thalassia hemprichii and Enhalus acoroides with increasing their size.

This study provided evidence that higher structural haartog of seagrass bed was related to the higher richness, abundance, and biomass of fish.


Letter to the Editor. However statistical verification of such a relationship is possible only in areas with high species richness of seagrass and fish assemblages which is observed in tropical waters.

Structural complexity of seagrass bed including species composition and shoot density is argued to be an important factor determining fish assemblages. The book includes succinct descriptions of the different seagrass plant families and provides user friendly keys to the different species. Guadalupe Barba SantosJ. Thus, Segarass has had direct personal and professional experiences that have given her the opportunity to learn about the seagrasses in these diverse regions. My dream would be to have this fourth and final regional seagrass book completed and then all four regional books combined into a single eBook or print copy that would be readily available globally and permanently.

The Oldest Globular World Map: Taken together, these three regional seagrass books encompass about three quarters of the globe. Relationship between the tropical seagrass bed characteristics and the structure of the associated fish community.

Material for this study was collected in three seagrass seagraes with different structure in Inner Ambon Bay, Eastern Indonesia. This finding is important for seagrass-fisheries management. North Holland Publishing Co.


Michelle studied the southern temperate seagrasses during her undergraduate and graduate studies at the University of Western Australia. The species descriptions are informed by the latest genetic evidence, a far better way to classify species and relatedness than leaf tip morphology or other arbitrary characteristics.

However, lower structural complexity of seagrass patch should not be underestimated because it provided different habitat for various stages of life in fish. Michelle Waycott lower right is the common link in the three regional seagrass books that have been published. Open Journal of EcologyVol. This beautifully illustrated 72 pp.

Michelle is an evolutionary biologist who uses a variety of molecular techniques to investigate seagrasses. Mail will not be published required.
