(U.S.A.) (Received July 2, ) INTRODUCTION Transplantation of species is Cited by: Thalassia testudinum, commonly known as turtlegrass, is a species of marine seagrass. It forms meadows in shallow sandy or muddy locations in the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. Thalassia testudinum is a perennial grass growing from a long, jointed rhizome.

The rhizome is buried in the substrate 5 to 10 cm (2 to 4 in) deep, exceptionally Family: Hydrocharitaceae. Seagrass transplantation techniques for habitat restoration include vegetative and seed-based methods.

Phillips I. INTRODUCTION Seagrasses play an important role in the biological and physical functions of the coastal marine environment.

However, increased coastal engineering activities in the environment have created impacts which adversely affect this productive coastal resource. Thalassia is a marine seagrass genus comprising two known species.

Turtle-grass Thalassia testudinum Banks ex König Description: This sea grass has a horizontal rhizome, buried as much as 25 cm deep in the gives rise to erect, green leaves.

The leaves arise in clusters from short stalks; they are flat, mm wide and may be 30 cm long. Abstract. The effects of in situ light reductions on two species of subtropical seagrasses, Thalassia testudirum (reduced to 14% and 10% of surface irradiance; SI) and Halodule wrightii (reduced to 16% and 13% SI) were examined over a mo period (October September ) in relation to leaf elongation rates, sediment pore-water ammonium, and blade Cited by: that the loss of T.
