Publication – Halophila stipulacea flowering in the invasive/native regions


A new scientific publication of MER on the tropical seagrass Halophila stipulacea and its differences  in sex ratios between native (Eilat, northern Red Sea) and invasive (Cyprus, Mediterranean Sea) populations. The existence of both sexes simultaneously in the Mediterranean invasive populations might help its ongoing expansion in the Mediterranean, thereby threatening local seagrasses species.

The article was prepared in collaboration with scientists from The Dead-Sea and Arava Science Center (Israel) and Tel-Aviv University (Israel) and has been published in the Botanica Marina journal. It’s available on the following Link.
