Description
Several characteristics of Thalassodendron ciliatum populations were evaluated along the coasts of Kenya and Zanzibar Island, with the aim to study spatial variability in this species. more

Several characteristics of Thalassodendron ciliatum populations were evaluated along the coasts of Kenya and Zanzibar Island, with the aim to study spatial variability in this species. A reconstruction technique, which makes use of scars left by abscised leaves and flowers, was employed to determine leaf production, shoot demography and flowering frequency.
