Note(s): Seagrass beds are generally considered valuable habitats. These values provided by seagrasses include: sediment stability, primary productivity, and "nursery" areas for animals by providing habitat, food, and refuge from predators. Thus, seagrass beds usually support a dense and diverse assemblage small animals (Virnstein et al., 1983, Fla. Sci. 46:363-381).
