Seagrass meadows – bountiful underwater gardens that nestle close to shore and are the most common coastal ecosystem on Earth – can reduce bacterial exposure for corals, other sea creatures and humans, according to EEB postdoc Joleah Lamb. A member of Cornell’s Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, and Nature Conservancy NatureNet fellow, Lamb shares: “The seagrass appear to combat bacteria, and this is the first research to assess whether that coastal ecosystem can alleviate disease associated with marine organisms.” Follow this link to the full story in the Cornell Chronicle.
