Fieldguide Halophila stipulacea reproductive structures

Seagrasses are marine flowering plants that can reproduce both sexually (through flowering and subsequent seed formation) and asexually (through clonal growth). Sexual reproduction increases genetic diversity, resilience and dispersal success of seagrasses. A recent study discovered that the first report of sexual reproduction of a successful invasive seagrass was incorrect, and therefore released a new field guide to improve future determination.
