Effects of slow-release nutrients on eelgrass (Zostera marina L.) morphometrics and water quality

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

We applied slow-release nutrient treatments at the sediment surface of existing eelgrass patches in order to determine their effect on plant growth and water quality in Frenchman Bay, ME. The nutrient addition did not seem to adversely affect water quality in the study area; in addition, there were no same-season effects of nutrient addition on plant growth. Potential longterm effects will be investigated in summer 2013.
