Marine Monocotyledonous Plants of Bermuda
Abstract:Early records of Zostera marina remain unconfirmed, but records of Diplanthera Wrightii, Cymodocea manatorum, and Thalassia testudinum are confirmed and supplemented by observations on stations and habits of growth. An unattached specimen of Halophila Baillonis, previously unknown from Bermuda, and specimens of this species from other Caribbean areas are placed on record.
The role of Thalassia colonies that promote sedimentation on the floors of bays by accumulating calcareous debris is described.
