Control of microbial growth on eelgrass (Zostera marina L.: Spermatophyta) by leaf-derived metabolites


The role of minor components of the leaves ofZostera marina L. in altering the activity of micro-organisms directly and indirectly by affecting amphipod grazers was investigated in laboratory experiments. Water-soluble extracts of eelgrass leaves inhibited the growth of many marine bacteria and a micro-alga (Platymonas sp.) at concentrations equivalent to… (More)
