Mainly broad type of sea plants
fall in the seagrass categorization. These
underwater sea plants were used as a packing
designed for mattresses in the past. Seagrass in
fact approaches from four diverse plant families.
Such type of plant families as well are capable of
growing in sea and ocean water. These plants are
blossoming and grow in sunken meadows. These sea
plants are vital to sea life natural balance though
these types of deep sea plants are not fed upon by
most sea animals. In addition endows with attrition
and sea wave protection; may even grant a basis to
There are some major factors which
must be there in the water before the seagrass can
adopt itself to that environment.
The growing place has to be completely
covered (deep inside sea)
The water must have quite an ample amount of
salt in it.
It must be strong enough that it could easily
withstand the harsh and rough sea wave shores that
would hit or crash with it
Pollination should be easy in that water.
There are only ten water species which fulfill the
above criterion; only one tenth of the species are
truly ranked as true seagrasses, and might come
about in the Gulf of California.
The seagrasses were initially from freshwater
plants, and then later on they started to evolve in
saltwater. Salt-plants such as halophytes,
seagrasses; generally have a lower water probable in
their roots which leads them to take in more water.
This is managed by having lower water capacity in
their roots and by having more interior salt
concentrations than the outside sea. Such plants are
able to excrete overloaded salts in them throughout
their leaves and stems.
One type of
seagrass called as Phyllospadix torreyi its pointed
bristles allow it to grip to algae and other sea
rocks inside the seas and oceans. Other types are
named as Thalassia, Zostera, Halophila and
Thalassia in the stifling Atlantic contains around
close to 30,000 species of animals just in one
quadrangle meter. Algae of 100 species are found to
grow on the leaves which live on those areas.
