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. Seagrass research would greatly benefit from having a single, definitive guide to the species of these beautiful underwater flowering plants.

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.

Michelle studied the southern temperate seagrasses during her undergraduate and graduate studies at the University of Western Australia. The common link in the three regional seagrass books has been Michelle Waycott.


Professor den Hartog is a spritely Dutch botanist, now in his 80s, who also was the hartov editor of the journal Aquatic Botany in Michelle Waycott lower right is the common link in the three regional seagrass books that have been published. Letter to the Editor.

Mail will not be published required. Along with many of my cohort and succeeding seagrass researchers, I resorted to photocopying the entire book.

This study provided evidence that higher structural complexity of seagrass bed was related to the higher richness, abundance, and biomass of fish. This finding is important for seagrass-fisheries management. North Holland Publishing Co.

Notify me of new posts by email. Michelle is an evolutionary biologist who uses a variety of molecular techniques to investigate seagrasses. Material for this study was collected in three seagrass beds with different structure in Inner Ambon Bay, Eastern Indonesia.

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.

Scientific Research An Academic Publisher. Taken together, these three regional seagrass books encompass about three quarters of the globe.

This beautifully illustrated 72 pp. Learning Science — Tags: Structural complexity of seagrass bed including species composition and shoot density is argued to be an important factor determining fish assemblages. RSS feed for comments on this post.


Thus, Michelle has had direct personal and professional experiences that have given her the opportunity to learn about the seagrasses in these diverse regions.

The Oldest Globular World Map: Open Journal of EcologyVol. Relationship between the tropical seagrass bed characteristics and the structure of the associated fish community.

However, lower structural complexity of seagrass patch should not be underestimated because it provided different habitat for various stages of life in fish. 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 seagrads increasing their size.

The book includes succinct descriptions of the different seagrass plant families and provides user friendly keys to the different species.
