Impact of Epiphytes on Seagrass Health in California Estuaries
Maya Brugueraon 5 June 2014
Transcript of Impact of Epiphytes on Seagrass Health in California Estuaries
Thank you for listening!
Why is Seagrass Important?
Seagrass Light Limitation
Epiphyte: An organism growing on another organism
What is the relationship between
as indicated by seagrass shoot density and blade area in

A special thank you to Dr. Peggy Fong, Sarah Bittick, Jay Harvey,
Andrea Maben, and
the UCLA IoES
Analysis & Conclusions

California estuary seagrasses
do not exhibit the typical inverse relationship
epiphyte load and seagrass health
found in most seagrass habitats
Seagrass Area Variation with Depth
It already happened!
