Carbon fluxes in seagrass meadows: effects of blooming macroalgae
Carbon dioxide and methane are both potent greenhouse gasses, and knowing their emission patterns from natural areas is essential. In a mesocosm experiment, carbon emission from bare sediment is compared to that of healthy seagrass (Zostera noltii) meadows, as well as seagrass meadows with added decomposing macroalgae (Ulva lactusa). The treatment with added macroalgae simulates a disturbed seagrass meadow due to human interference such as excessive feralization.
The seminar will be held on June 22, at 13:30, online via zoom.
Participation is free but mandatory to register.
