The Ecology of Eelgrass Meadows of the Atlantic Coast: a Community Profile

This report, one of a series of community profiles produced by the Fish and Wildlife Service, synthesizes scientific literature and data on the eelgrass community of the Atlantic coast from North Carolina to Nova Scotia. It is one of several profiles in the series to deal with seagrass communities and complements a published profile on the seagrasses of South Florida (FWS/OBS-82/25) and profiles being prepared on seagrasses of the Pacific Northwest and the northeast Gulf of Mexico.
