The interesting part of the study has been following the recovery of the seagrasses on the shoals. The seagrasses on the shoals prior to the die-off were fairly stable in species distribution with a climax species, Syringodium filiforme (manatee grass), being the dominant species, particularly in deeper water. Because the die-off progressed from deep to shallow, this species was nearly eliminated from the area.  Read more about the seagrass study .... in the A View From the Water article by Don Deis, CEP in the The Certified Environmental Professional July / August.
