New study warns: global warming and invasive species threaten seagrass meadows in the Mediterranean

The rise in sea temperature and salinity in the Mediterranean and the immigration of invasive species could endanger the structure and biodiversity of its seagrass meadows, which play an essential role in the marine environment. This is the conclusion reached by an international team of researchers led by the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT) in a study recently published in the journal „Science of The Total Environment“.
