Nonnutrient anthropogenic chemicals in seagrass ecosystems: fate and effects.

  title={Nonnutrient anthropogenic chemicals in seagrass ecosystems: fate and effects.},
  author={Michael A. Lewis and Richard Devereux},

  volume={28 3},
Impacts of human-related chemicals, either alone or in combination with other stressors, are important to understand to prevent and reverse continuing worldwide seagrass declines. This review summarizes reported concentrations of anthropogenic chemicals in grass bed-associated surface waters, sediments, and plant tissues and phytotoxic concentrations. Fate information in seagrass-rooted sediments and overlying water is most available for trace metals. Toxicity results in aqueous exposures are… CONTINUE READING
