Restoring eelgrass, Zostera marina L., habitat using a new transplanting technique: the horizontal rhizome method
MetadataShow full item record
This article discusses a technique called horizontal rhizome method which was implemented in the Great Bay Estuary in New Hampshire. The intent of this transplantation was to mitigate port expansion impacts on the existing eelgrass population. Success was found to be greatest in minimum-impact areas, while low survivals occurred in areas of sea ice damage and dynamic tidal activity.
