Seagrass clonal integration buffers against burial stress

We’ve just published a paper that demonstrated that maintenance of seagrass clonal integration plays a relevant role in coping with a particular type of stressor: here, sedimentation (=burial). We manipulated levels of sedimentation inside plots where the clonal integration of the seagrass Cymodocea nodosa was either severed or maintained (see the picture below). The full reference is “Preservation of seagrass clonal integration buffers against burial stress, 2013, JEMBE: 44-46”. You can download the paper from the “articles” section of the webpage.
