Dynamics of Millenary Organic Deposits Resulting from the Growth of the Mediterranean Seagrass Posidonia oceanica
Abstract The Mediterranean seagrassPosidonia oceanicaaccumulates large quantities of organic debris as roots, rhizomes and leaf sheaths are progressively buried forming a bioconstruction called ‘
Detritus dynamics in the seagrass Posidonia oceanica: elements for an ecosystem carbon and nutrient budget
Leaf decay, leaf l~ t ter export, burial in belowground sinks, and resp~ratory consumption of detritus were exam~ned at 2 different depths in a Posidonia oceanica (L ) Delile meadow off the Medes
Annual metabolic carbon balance of the seagrass Posidonia oceanica: the importance of carbohydrate reserves
We present the seasonal carbon (C) balance of the Mediterranean seagrass Posidonia oceanica (L.) Delile calculated from seasonal rates of C gain (photosynthesis), C loss (respiration) and growth. We
Effects of in situ experimental shading on the Mediterranean seagrass Posidonia oceanica
The response of the Mediterranean seagrass Posidonia oceanica (L.) Delile to in situ light reduction was examined, infering that minimum light requirements of P. oceanica are between 16 and 10%, of surface irradiance, values which are consistent with light availability at the deep limits of nearby meadows.
Differential response of macrozoobenthos to marine sand extraction in the North Sea and the Western Mediterranean
Sublittoral benthic coastal communities of the North Sea and of the Western Mediterranean were studied before and after sand extraction between 1993 and 1995 at borrow sites in Denmark, The
