  • Published 2006
The patch dynamics (recruitment, growth and mortality) of seagrass Cymodocea nodosa were examined at the landscape scale (Le, the scale at which disturbances occur) by means of 3-dimensional (X. Y dimensions and depth) mapping of shoot internal density and age structure within the basic units (patches) forming the landscape. Highly skewed patch size and age distributions ~ n d i cated a high exponential patch mortality rate ( m = 0.82 * 0 07 yr-l) and a slightly higher exponential patch… CONTINUE READING
