Manual for Identification of Seagrasses of India
Seagrasses are marine angiosperms found to occur in shallow marine waters such as estuaries, lagoons, bays, and along the continental shelf, playing an important role in maintaining the biodiversity and overall health of coastal and marine ecosystems. The book provides a comprehensive and extensive identification key for Indian seagrasses, as access to earlier studies are found to be very limited. The identification manual will be useful for the scientific and student community to properly document the seagrass species, and explore the possibility of recording new species from our country, India.
