Seagrasses resemble vast underwater meadows of flowering plants, and they represent some of the most productive systems on the planet. These ecosystems protect shorelines amid storms and sequester up to 18% of the world’s carbon. Droughts and hurricanes factor into scientists’ assessments of seagrass in the Gulf of Mexico. Join a marine researcher to hear about a Texas seagrass monitoring program, examining the current status and trends for seagrasses in the Gulf.
