Seagrass Monitoring and Assessment in Texas Coastal Waters

Summary

This proposal outlines an implementation program for monitoring Texas seagrasses in the Lower Laguna Madre, following protocols that evaluate seagrass condition based on landscape-scale dynamics. We will adopt the hierarchical strategy for seagrass monitoring outlined by Neckles et al. (2011) to establish the quantitative relationships between physical and biotic parameters that ultimately control seagrass condition, distribution, persistence, and overall health.
