National Species: Posidonia Meadow

This marine plant species is not a seaweed, but an aquatic plant which plays a vital role in the coastal marine environment. The meadows that it forms serve as spawning grounds and nurseries for a multitude of animal species, and a source of food for still more. Its role in the environment also includes protecting the coastline from erosion, storing atmospheric carbon dioxide and producing oxygen.
