Genetic population structure of Baltic Sea eelgrass - urgent information for conservation of a foundation species under climate change
The seagrass Zostera marina (eelgrass) is one of the most important habitat-forming species around the Swedish coast. It has declined considerably and is at risk of further decline due to climate change. Management to mitigate further losses must take into consideration the genetic diversity of eelgrass. The project focuses primarily on eelgrass in the Baltic Sea.
