    The recorded expansion in the Eastern Mediterranean of , which appeared in this sea after the Suez Canal had been opened, is reviewed. The present geographical and ecological distributions of this plant in the Mediterranean are summarized and its phenology in this basin is discussed. Possible answers are presented to the questions of how the plant could reach the Mediterranean and expand in it, and why other Red Sea seagrasses did not follow the same route.
