Introduction Seagrasses are an important part of Florida’s underwater ecosystems; they provide a  home for fish and other marine life as well as hold the sediment below in place. Boaters  who prop scar the seagrass beds can cause the loss of seagrass. The purpose of this study  was to learn more about how fish respond to the loss of seagrass in the ocean. This is  done by comparing two different locations with varying amounts of seagrass on the ocean floor. It is believed that if there is less seagrass in a specific area, there will also be less  fish in that area. Materials and Methods This type of research cannot accurately be completed in a science lab, so the researhers  had to go to locations with and without seagrass. At one location, seagrass covered 100%  of the bottom while seagrass only covered 68% of the bottom at the other location.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
