The Marine Fact sheet n°3 on the news of the overseas seagrass beds has been published

IFRECOR (Initiative FRançaise pour les RÉcifs CORalliens) promotes documentation on coral reefs and associated ecosystems in French overseas territories.

Like the first two issues, this new Marine Leaflet (n°3) aims to communicate and promote the ongoing actions on seagrass beds in different overseas territories and promote the networking of stakeholders. Several contributors have contributed richly to this third issue, which reports on activities at international, national, regional and overseas levels.The articles presented summarize part of the news from French tropical seagrass beds, concerning the implementation of research work on habitat functionality and the development of tools, studies on the invasion of Halophila stipulacea in the West Indies and interactions with green turtles, the application of the Water Framework Directive in the overseas departments and the creation of a regional network to monitor seagrass beds in the Indian Ocean.
